Hello Friends!

 NEWS FLASH: Some good news: Blue Soul just hit #1 for 3 weeks on the JazzWeek Radio chart!

I decided that I would go ahead as planned and release my new CD Blue Soul  Dave Stryker with Bob Mintzer and the WDR Big Band. I figured in these times I could put some positive energy and music out into the world. You can order it right here on my website. If you’d like to digitally download Blue Soul or any of my albums please visit my Bandcamp page. I hope you enjoy the music! 

These are extraordinary times. Please be safe and let’s all get through this together.

Like many others most of my upcoming gigs have been cancelled or postponed. Check back here and I will keep you updated. 

In the meantime please order some CD’s or books if you like! You can also sign up for lessons at my online school at ArtistWorks Thanks!

Eight Track III stayed at #1 for 6 weeks and #3 most played of 2019 on the JazzWeek radio chart, received 4 Stars in Downbeat and has made many Best of 2019 lists including The New York Times and Rolling Stone! The other news is Dave Stryker’s Jazz Improvisation Method Vol III is hot off the press. Both are available right here on this site . 

“When it comes to ultracool & hip jazz, guitarist Dave Stryker is at the very TOP of the list… what an absolutely fun album. The album opener, “Move on Up“, alone, makes it well worth purchasing the full album. Jared’s organ just KICKS IT OUT on this superb tune! Stevie Wonder’s “Too High” is one of the best performances of the tune I’ve ever heard. The recording is just flawless. I give Dave & his superb players a MOST HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.99 out of 5.”
Dick Metcalf, editor, Contemporary Fusion Reviews
