My new CD “Messin’ with Mister T” has arrived and you can get it here on this site before it’s official release date of April 7th!
It features 10 tenor greats along with my organ trio playing the music of Stanley Turrentine (who I played with for 10 years). I’m really happy with this album and can’t wait for you to hear it. Just click on the right…
You can also download or order it here at CD Baby:
Here is the first review from the Midwest Jazz Record:
DAVE STRYKER/Messin’ With Mister T
Guitar man Stryker does it again. Having toured with Stanley Turrentine for a decade, he didn’t just pull this tribute to Turrentine out of his hat thinking it might be a good idea. Augmenting his organ trio, which already has Jared Gold on B3, with ten killer sax men, each getting a chance t o step up to the mic, you have his give Stryker a load of credit for nothing else than writing the checks to pull this off. Loaded with one smoking track after another, this set leaves you wondering why nobody at the major labels is playing attention to the hot bed of creativity going on in jazz. Hot stuff that just doesn’t quit. Sheesh, what better way to kick off a record than with Jared Gold and Houston Person working up a sweat?

Also I will be playing at Trumpets Sat Mar 28th for my Birthday celebration – 8 and 10 pm with Monte Croft, Kyle Koehler, and Steve Johns (and possible guest tenor — we might preview some of the new CD!) Hope to see you there – all the best and stay warm… DS
