New CD
Strykin' Ahead

4 Stars Downbeat Nov. 2017

"....Overall, the album casts a warm, clear glow, with plenty of cohesive interplay between Stryker, organist Jared Gold, drummer McClenty Hunter, and vibraphonist Steve Nelson. While influenced by many guitarists, Stryker remains true to his own vision. Wes Montgomery and Kenny Burrell may be touchstones, but Stryker forges his own sound throughout." - Martin Kasdan

Critical Praise For Strykin' Ahead

"A mainstream record of undeniable beauty"
Vittorio Lo Conte / Music Zoom Italy

If you have chops like Dave's; his musical sensibilities; his uncanny ability to put together interesting instrumentations; his skill at selecting just the right band mates to make Jazz with; wouldn't you want to work all the time, too?

It becomes like anything you're good at; you want to do it as often as possible but occasionally vary the context to keep it from getting stale.
– Steven Cerra Jazz Profiles

A real burner of a set, it feels like an artifact from the past, unreleased from Bluenote/Verve, but it's modern, contemporary touches are well evident showing how a cat that's been hitting all the right notes for all these years can't make a false step now.
- CHRIS SPECTOR, Midwest Record Editor and Publisher

I give Dave and his talented crew a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, with an "EQ" (energy quotient) rating of 4.99 for this one… and keep in mind that you heard it here first… this one is BOUND for the awards.
- Dick Metcalf Improvijazzation Nation
