Claire Daly Comes to Ride Symbol Records

Claire Daly has long been a mainstay of the New York jazz scene and her baritone saxophone has notably graced the groups of Joel Forrester.  Her 2001 recording, Movin’ On is now available on Ride Symbol.  Claire leads a quartet that includes pianist Eli Yamin, bassist Dave Hofstra, drummer Peter Grant and, on two selections, trumpeter James Zollar.   The group covers jazz and popular standards and an original by Mr. Forrester.  And on the Leonard Bernstein/Comden and Green chestnut Some Other Time, Ms. Daly is presented in her recorded vocal debut and it’s sweet and lovely.
