Jared Gold: Reemergence

Read "Reemergence" reviewed by C. Andrew Hovan



The title of organist Jared Gold's newest release seems to suggest that he is returning to the fold after being away for a time. In actuality, he has been a mainstay on the New York scene for some time now and can boast eight previous albums as a leader dating back to 2008's Solids ...

Dave Stryker: Strykin’ Ahead

Read "Strykin’ Ahead" reviewed by John Kelman

Having just turned sixty this year, it's still quite remarkable that Dave Stryker--a musician who, unfortunately and unfairly, fits into the category of “one of the best guitarists most have never heard"--has released well over thirty albums as a leader/co-leader (including his Stryker/Slagle Band, with saxophonist Steve Slagle, and Latin-informed Trio Mundo) in a little more ...

Dave Stryker: Strykin’ Ahead

Read "Strykin’ Ahead" reviewed by Roger Farbey

Hot on the heels of his 2016 release, the soul and rock infused Eight Track II comes Dave Stryker's punningly titled Strykin' Ahead with a mix of standards and Stryker originals. 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 ...

Dave Stryker: Eight Track II

Read "Eight Track II" reviewed by Mark Sullivan

Guitarist Dave Stryker had such a good time covering classic '70s pop tunes on Eight Track (Strikezone Records, 2014) that he recorded a second installment. He is once again joined by his regular trio (organist Jared Gold and drummer McClenty Hunter), but with a different guest vibraphonist. That chair is taken by Steve Nelson, best known ...

Dave Stryker: Eight Track II

Read "Eight Track II" reviewed by Jack Bowers

Eight Track II, Dave Stryker's twenty-seventh album as a leader, could be subtitled “Stryker Strikes Again," as it is a pleasing sequel to 2014's well-received Eight Track, on which the guitarist's working trio and guest vibraphonist Stefon Harris revisited pop songs from the '70s and rearranged them in a hip new groove. Eight Track II offers ...

Dave Stryker: Eight Track II

Read "Eight Track II" reviewed by Dan Bilawsky

Sequels are a tricky business, often playing to expectations and hewing close to the formula(s) that helped spawn them in the first place. For many, for those very reasons, they're automatically viewed as a slam dunk, aiding in the creation and extension of a franchise entertainment experience for general audiences that went in hard for the ...
