Acclaimed baritone saxophonist Claire leads her band and presents a celebration of the unforgettable multi-instrumentalist Rahsaan Roland Kirk. Says Daly, “He was a unique human, as devoted as he was eccentric.” Claire and her band – Eli Yamin on piano, Dave Hofstra on bass and Peter Grant on drums – play a mix of Kirk’s originals, songs that he performed and originals by the leader, all in the spirit of the irrepressible Rahsaan. Claire also plays flute on two tracks and sings a few surprises!
The Claire Daly Band:
Claire Daly, baritone saxophone, flute, vocals; Eli Yamin, piano; Dave Hofstra, bass; Peter Grant, drums
