Following the lively opener, “Shadowboxing," a Stryker original, comes a rather more sedate version of Wayne Shorter's “Footprints" followed by Stryker's “New You" in which ...

My Fats Waller Obsession: Why Do We Collect Music?

Read "My Fats Waller Obsession: Why Do We Collect Music?" reviewed by Marc Davis
