Welcome to Darryl Yokley's Official Website

"I've had the pleasure to work with Darryl Yokley several times in New York City. He has contributed wonderful arrangements and original compositions to the different ensembles. His playing is also top shelf. Darryl is a great musician all around."
          - Mark Gross, Jazz Legacy Recording Artist
"Over the past 7 or so years I've watched Darryl Yokley grow as a composer, saxophonist, arranger and most of all A HUMAN BEING! Take the time to listen to this amazing artist as he grows and continues to create outstanding work!"
-Orrin Evans, Smoke Session Recording Artist
"Great work man. The Void is a very impressive debut."
          - Russ Musto, writer from All About Jazz, New York
"It's refreshing to hear an artist making a name for himself by trying to NOT sound like everyone else."
          - Tim Warfield, Criss Cross Jazz Recording Artist
"I have worked with Darryl, playing in various small groups, and playing his originals. Not only is he an individual, but is one of the young crop of forward-looking musicians who has re-discovered that jazz is supposed to be fun----serious fun!"
-Jack Walrath, trumpeter for Charles Mingus, Sam Rivers, and Ray Charles. Steeplechase Recording Artist.
