For Halloween, Claire Daly will play selections from her trio's CD, "Scary Bari.

 

Her first CD as a leader, Swing Low, was released on Koch Jazz in 1999 and Claire was nominated by the Jazz Journalist Association for "Best New Artist of the Year." Swing Low was subsequently added to a listening station in the William Jefferson Clinton Library in Little Rock, AK as a CD significant to the President while in office. Since then, she has been a winner/nominee of many critic and reader polls and has won the JJA Baritone Saxophonist of the Year award. Claire was the original baritone player in the Diva Big Band as well as doing multiple recordings as a side person (Taj Mahal, George Garzone, many more). Some projects include "Movin’ On", "Heaven Help Us All", "The Honorable Hustlers" w beat boxer Napoleon Maddox, "Speak, Spake, Spoke" with wordslinger Kirpal Gordon, "Scaribari", "Rah Rah – a tribute to Rahsaan Roland Kirk”, "The Mary Joyce Project” and "People Like Us” with pianist/composer Joel Forrester (composer of the theme for "Fresh Air" w Terry Gross on NPR).
