    Getting the files from Chase I felt like buying an early Picasso painting before this one got very famous and priceless. Incredible beautiful!

    Another perfect delivery from Chase. We've done several tracks now and Chase always nails my request and direction; but also offers some extra sauce I couldn't even know how to ask for!

    Chase did another stellar job on what I'm told by others, is a rhythm monster tune. His ability to play over the bar with super imposed phrases, and keep the melody fun and interesting are reasons why I keep coming back again and again. Another HUGE reason - his tone is so mature. Chase takes songs and lifts them up.

    Knowing that Chase is a world class saxophon player I wanted him to play the main melody of my new song which should be on air in July. He finally delivered eight versions of that melody all played in a different style but every time perfectly beautiful. He also did send me two files where he improvises over the backing track and they are so brilliant I got a headache thinking I probably have to leave them out. I am sure Chase Baird is a musician the world will hear from in the future.

    I hired Chase to play a short solo on a soul song and he did an incredible job. He has amazing jazz and soul chops, gets a perfect recorded sound and the turnaround time was very fast.
    Highest recommendation!

    Chase is one of the highest caliber musicians I’ve had the pleasure of working with. He is a master craftsman with jazz chops that’ll leave you stunned and taste that’ll bring any pop tune to the next level. I absolutely love what he delivered on my clients track, he’ll be my first call for saxophone from now on!

    Chase is an amazing musician! He’s one of the best sax player I’ve ever met and worked with.
    I wanted him in two songs of my new album and he recorded two killer solos.
    He also plays the Ewi like no other, with his awesome super sound programmed by him.
    I highly recommend Chase for all kind of music production.
    I had a fantastic experience! Hope to work again with him soon.
