Guitarist Dave Stryker began his career playing gigs in Harlem with the soulful organist Jack McDuff. Sitting in often with that band was tenor saxophonist, Stanley Turrentine. That led Stryker to a nine year association with Turrentine, joining him at all the major festivals, concert halls and clubs around the world. Over the years Stryker has performed with such jazz greats as Dizzy Gillespie and Freddie Hubbard, Jimmy Smith, James Moody, Jimmy Heath Eliane Elias, Joe Lovano and many others. He continues to perform with the Dave Stryker Organ Trio, Dave Stryker Eight Track Band and his Blue to the Bone Band. Recent gigs have included Birdland, The Blue Note, Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center, and tours of Europe, Canada and Japan.
Pianist Bob Fox and bassist Terry Burns are actually two of the other band-members with Stryker and Stanley Turrentine, so this performance in the Frank Morgan Taos Jazz Festival will be a reunion concert and sure to be an emotional one for the band.
“Guitarist/composer Dave Stryker possesses a golden tone, urgent style and the kind of heated technique that can blow the roof off any gig. … an urban tale spinner, a sharp stylist able to improve any bandstand, and a storyteller in sound of the highest degree.” – Ken Micallef, JAZZ TIMES, January, 2022
“I have followed Dave Stryker’s playing since his early days in Omaha, through his long stay with Stanley Turrentine… and he just gets better and better– with one of the most joyous feels around.” – Pat Metheny
