NEW CD RELEASE BY BARITONE SAXOPHONIST CLAIRE DALY "THE MARY JOYCE PROJECT: NOTHING TO LOSE"
(Published: April 03, 2011)

Award-winning baritone saxophonist Claire Daly is releasing a new CD, a musical homage to her father's first cousin, Mary Joyce. A pioneer who made a 1,000 mile dogsled journey from Juneau to Fairbanks in 1935-36, Joyce and her three month journey tell an amazing tale of determination, adventure, risk-taking, and fortitude.

Claire Daly and pianist Steve Hudson have composed music inspired by Joyce's written journal of the trip. They along with bassist Mary Ann McSweeney, drummer Peter Grant, and human beat box extraordinaire Napoleon Maddox, honor this legendary woman who lived life to the fullest. "Mary Joyce was a true free spirit and her life was a remarkable improvisation. The essense of her style and spirit compelled us to create these compositions. I met her as a child but only realized how amazing she was when my cousin published her journal two years ago." says Daly.

"The Mary Joyce Project: Nothing To Lose" will premiere at the Juneau Jazz and Classics Festival in May 2011 by the Claire Daly Quintet. The CD will be available commercially in June. In conjunction with the CD release, the group will perform at Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, nightly from June 21st through the 25th at 11pm in New York City.
