Dave Stryker On Your Radar

Check Out Dave Stryker's New CD Eight Track on WBGO's Radar Featuring
Dave Stryker –guitar, Stefon Harris – vibraphone, Jared Gold – organ, McClenty Hunter – drums (Strikezone Records 8809) Street Date: March 4, 2014

"Stryker's recordings are always hardy and reliable projects, but all of the stars line up for Eight Track. It has a perfect appeal to the middle to late Baby Boomers who came of age listening to this music. And we all know that is the best music ever produced."
C. Michael Bailey / All About Jazz

"A sure fingered, behind the scenes MVP, Stryker should connect here with jazz stations looking to broaden their audiences who will subsequently spread the word. Tasty stuff that avoids every pitfall imaginable, even when backing up Bread with Pink Floyd. Solid, jumping stuff throughout."
Chris Spector - Midwest Record

"No pretense or posturing on this one. Stryker's Eight Track is just straight up fun."
Dan Bilawsky / All About Jazz

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, Blue To The Bone 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 Stryker was voted once again into the 2013 Downbeat Critics and Readers Polls. Besides his own 25 recordings Stryker has appeared as a sideman or producer on over 100 others. As a composer he has recorded and published over 130 original compositions. He is involved in passing it on, and was recently hired as the new Jazz Guitar instructor at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.
