Throughout his career, Baird has covered every aspect of jazz, using his gift to create music with heart. Baird's philosophy for both himself and his non-profit, Stanley Baird Youth Jazz Foundation, is "Listening to music is good for the soul and the mind...don't do drugs, get your high on soothing, inspirational music."
