Stryker Slagle Band: Keeper

Read "Keeper" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Guitarist Dave Stryker is one of the most prolific talents in jazz, with almost two dozen releases as a leader, and stints with artists including Stanley Turrentine and Jack McDuff. His unique style has garnered him a number of prestigious awards. No less productive is Stryker's long-time co-leader, saxophonist Steve Slagle, who has led his own ...

The Stryker / Slagle Band: The Scene

Read "The Scene" reviewed by Woodrow Wilkins

Feel-good music may be the best way to describe The Scene by The Stryker/Slagle Band. This quarter presents eight original songs and one cover, all in an upbeat mood. Each song, in some way, is dedicated to brother musicians.

Guitarist Dave Stryker spent more than 13 years with Stanley Turrentine and has worked with Jack ...

The Stryker/Slagle band: The Scene

Read "The Scene" reviewed by Elliott Simon

Consummate professionals, guitarist Dave Stryker and saxophonist Steve Slagle continue to raise the bar of instrumental interplay with The Scene. This pair eschews gimmickry for chops and produces some of the best post-bop anywhere. Joe Lovano, himself one of the busiest and best tenor saxophonists around, joins them again, as he did on their previous release, ...

The Stryker/Slagle Band: The Scene

Read "The Scene" reviewed by John Barron

The Scene finds guitarist Dave Stryker and saxophonist Steve Slagle collaborating for their fourth recording as co-leaders. The disc is a clever, soulful set of original progressive jazz featuring bassist Jay Anderson, drummer Victor Lewis and, on four tracks, special guest saxophonist Joe Lovano.

The sly bouncy opener “Skee," a dedication to the late bassist Dennis ...

The Stryker/Slagle Band: Latest Outlook

Read "Latest Outlook" reviewed by Nic Jones

The more time passes, the less often truly exceptional documents of the modern mainstream such as this one seem to come along. Guitarist Dave Stryker and alto and soprano sax man Steve Slagle have been working together for some time and there's abundant evidence of that here in their almost symbiotic understanding. Together they make for ...

The Stryker / Slagle Band: Latest Outlook

Read "Latest Outlook" reviewed by Ernest Barteldes

After last year's Live at The Jazz Standard, the Slagle/Stryker band reconvened in the studio to record a batch of new compositions. The general sound of Latest Outlook is completely different from the previous recording--the leaders are the only two musicians to appear this time around, and the quartet is enhanced by the presence of Joe ...
