Craig Bailey, saxophone, flute, and clarinetist emerged in the mid‐'90s to become one of the most consistently inventive and potentially significant reed players of his generation. He played in his native Cincinnati, Ohio, and studied at the University of Miami in Coral Gables, Florida, graduating in 1984. After moving to New York in 1985, Bailey worked with big bands led by Charlie Persip (1985‐1986), Slide Hampton, and Ray Charles (1987‐2003). He also worked with Panama Francis' swing combos and recorded with the Nancy Banks Orchestra and Bobby Watson's short‐lived big band. Bailey joined the Tana Reid Quintet in 1991 and had his recording debut as a leader with 1995's impressive Candid CD 'A New Journey'. Since Bailey's recording debut, he has recorded three more CDs under his name, Brooklyn on the Evidence record label 2001 and The Brooklyn Big Band 'Live at Sweet Rhythm 'on the Candid record label 2009. He has also recorded with many artists as a strong leading voice on his instruments. He received his Master's degree from Queens College in 2006. His latest CD 'Craig Bailey and the Ohio Jazz Players, ‘Music a la Fleek' was released in the fall of 2018.
