Hello Friends Hope you’re having a great start to summer season. The big news is we went back in the studio with my quartet and recorded some new music. It’s a surprise what I have in store, but keep checking in and I will keep you posted. It is with my working group of Jared Gold on Hammond organ and McClenty Hunter on drums with special guest vibraphonist Steve Nelson. I’m off to the Aebersold workshop at the University of Louisville for 2 weeks and then I’ll be back for some local gigs and then the Litchfield Jazz Fest Sat Aug 6.
The Dave Stryker Quartet with Eric Alexander, Jared Gold and McClenty Hunter will be at the Monterey Jazz Fest(!) Sun Sept 16 7:30, and in LA the night before at the Nate Holden Theatre. The following weekend Sat Sept 24th the Dave Stryker Trio will be at the Savannah Jazz Fest.
Please check my itinerary page for all upcoming gigs.
The Stryker/Slagle Band Expanded new CD Routes (Strikezone Records) received 4.5 Stars in Downbeat and has been getting great reviews and reached #2 on the JazzWeek Radio Chart staying in the top 50 for 14 weeks. We just finished doing a weekend at Smalls, playing music from Routes. You can order the CD right here on the site. Please check my itinerary page for all info. Hope to see you at an upcoming gig! All the best DS
