Claire Daly at Berkshire Museum Theatre
Claire Daly’s “Baritone Monk” explores the work of the legendary jazz pianist Thelonious Monk, and has been heralded as among the most important releases in the past year. Sponsored in part by North Coast Brewing, which supported the recording project, “Baritone Monk” has been well-received by the media and is getting solid airplay nationally. "Unless you've been comatose these past few years, you must be aware that Claire Daly has established herself as one of our most compelling and creative voices on the baritone saxophone,” wrote Bob Bernotas in JazzImprov Magazine.
The performance of the Claire Daly Quartet is a first-time event at the Berkshire Museum, representing the conclusion of a northeast tour by Daly, a perennial poll-winning performer.
Daly is a six-time winner of the Downbeat Critic's Poll "Talent Deserving Wider Recognition," and having achieved that recognition, has also been the winner of the Jazz Journalist Association "Baritone Sax of the Year" award. Tickets for “Baritone Monk” are $15, and are available by phone at 413-443-7171, ext. 10.
