review (excerpt)

"Performers will appreciate Daughtrey's supreme idiomatic writing for the marimba. With The Yuletide Marimbist, Daughtrey has done an outstanding job of presenting standard holiday tunes in a fresh format so that performers and listeners alike will enjoy them."

- Eric Willie, Percussive Notes (November 2009)
