Stryker Slagle Band

After a successful two-night run at the Jazz Standard in NYC in January, The Stryker / Slagle Band headed back up to bassist Jay Anderson's Mountain Rest Studio in New Paltz NY to lay down nine new original tracks as well as a cover of Thelonious Monk's “Ruby My Dear”. This is the third CD by the same quartet: Dave Stryker-guitar, Steve Slagle-sax, Jay Anderson (bass), and Victor Lewis (drums), that released The Scene to critical success in 2008. Their fifth CD as the Stryker / Slagle Band--Keeper captures the live energy and group dynamics of a band that has been honing their sound for over 20 years, always striving to push the music ahead. Guitarist Dave Stryker and Saxophonist Steve Slagle's last CD The Scene was voted one of the Top CD's of 2008 by: Downbeat Magazine, Jazz Times Magazine, Jazz Improv Magazine, National Public Radio, Newark Star Ledger, and WBGO. Dave Stryker spent over 13 years with Stanley Turrentine, and also worked with Jack McDuff, Kevin Mahogany and Eliane Elias
