Whether you've heard guitarist Dave Stryker fronting his own group (with 20 CD's as a leader to date), or as a featured sideman with Stanley Turrentine, Jack McDuff, and Kevin Mahogany, you know why Gary Giddins in the Village Voice calls him "one of the most distinctive guitarists to come along in recent years." He was voted one of the Top Ten Guitarists in the 2001 Critics and Readers poll of Downbeat Magazine, and was recently elected again as a Rising Star in the 2006 and 2007 Downbeat Critics Poll. Dave Stryker brings to Birdland his Blue to the Bone Band, which features the guitarist with three other rhythm players and four horns. An ongoing project since 1996, the band showcases Stryker's blues side.
