Whether you’ve heard guitarist Dave Stryker leading his own group (with 25 recordings 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’s most recent CD “Eight Track” is a celebration of 70’s pop hits, reimagined by his working trio with the addition of vibes. It has spent 20 weeks on the JazzWeek Radio charts, topping off at #3 for 3 weeks.
Dave Stryker was voted once again into the 2013 Downbeat Critics and Readers Polls. In addition to his own 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 passing it on as an Instructor of Jazz Guitar at Indiana University Jacobs School of Music.
