JACC fovorite David Larsen is bringing us another fantastic evening of Jazz! Tonight we feature Cohesion: David Larsen & Darryl . They will be joined by the CDA Charter Academy and feature performances by Darryl Yokely & The Sound Reformation. They will be featuring songs from their new album which will be available. Here's a little bit about Darryl Yokely: " Critically acclaimed saxophonist Darryl Yokley has been recognized as a very talented composer and arranger by The New York Times, Downbeat Magazine, and more. Jazz critic Brent Black described Yokley's playing by saying “Yokley is a critic’s worst nightmare as he side steps standard categorization with ease" and Dave Cantor of Downbeat Magazine said of his recent release Pictures at an African Exhibition that the young saxophonist was "nakedly shuttling emotion through his instrument." However his music and playing are described, the consensus is that Darryl Yokley is an artist with a unique concept and a sound like no one else.
