Saxophonist Darryl Yokley & his Quartet

Darryl Yokley is a uniquely gifted artist with a vast array of skills at his disposal. Not only is he an accomplished saxophonist, but he is also recognized as a very talented composer and arranger, writing unforgettable tunes for his own band Sound Reformation as well as arranging music for artist such as Orrin Evans and the Captain Black Big Band, Rhonda Ross, Michigan State University Jazz ensemble, and more. Some people have characterised his playing and writing, as “different”, “unique”, “adventeruous”, “special”, or saying that Yokley has “his own thing.” Brent Black describes Yokley playing saying “Yokley is a critics worst nightmare as he side steps standard categorization with ease.” However his music is described, the concensus is that Darryl Yokley is an artist with a concept and vision, and a sound that sounds like no one else.
