Whether you’ve heard guitarist Dave Stryker leading his own group (with 25 CD’s as a leader to date), co-leading The Stryker/Slagle Band, or as a featured sideman with Stanley Turrentine, Jack McDuff, and many others, you know why the Village Voice calls him “one of the most distinctive guitarists to come along in recent years.”
Dave’s new CD “Eight Track” (available now), is a celebration of classic pop tunes from the 70’s reimagined by his working trio. Dave’s guitar is joined by Jared Gold on Hammond B3 organ, and McClenty Hunter on drums with special guest Stefon Harris on vibraphone. It has stayed on the JazzWeek radio charts for 20 weeks topping off at #3 for 3 weeks. Downbeat magazine ran a feature article in the June 2014 issue on Dave and he was recently voted into the 2014 Downbeat Critics and Readers Poll for the 7th time.
