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.
