Pictures at an African Exhibition featured in the May issue of Downbeat Magazine!!!  The album received a 3.5 star review from Downbeat and was also included as an editor's pick for the month of April!!  Check out a sneak peak of what is being said about the album...

         "Designed as a narrative supported by 13 works from British visual artist David Emmanuel Noel, Pictures At An African Exhibition engages in tracing the history of humankind through song.

Based on Modest Mussorgsky’s Pictures At An Exhibition, which the pianist wrote after visiting a museum and used what hung in galleries as a starting point, saxophonist Darryl Yokley claims the concept in order to compose a corrective history of humankind while nakedly shuttling emotion through his instrument."

-Dave Cantor, Downbeat Magazine Editor
