Released by North Coast Brewing in October of 2012, Baritone Monk features the Claire Daly Quartet, with Claire Daly on baritone saxophone, flute, and vocals, Steve Hudson on piano, Peter Grant on drums, and Mary Ann McSweeney on bass. Robin D. G. Kelley, author of Thelonious Monk: The Life and Times of an American Original, writes in the liner notes, "Claire Daly's marvelous tribute to Monk's music reminds us of that special affinity, of Monk's penchant for the lower frequencies and the big, full sound he expected from his ensemble. Monk's music is notoriously difficult, though you wouldn't know it from this recording. Daly's superb quartet combines a mastery of Monk's less-recorded repertoire with the casual joy of a jam session."

Legendary Jazz bassist Ron Carter, in his liner notes, calls the Brother Thelonious Quintet "a breath of fresh air" and suggests some "serious listening" to this group that "I would stop to hear at the drop of a drum stick."

Both of these CDs were entirely underwritten by North Coast Brewing. 100% of sales proceeds from the CD are donated to the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz to further international Jazz education programs.
