Stryker/Slagle Band Monday Dec. 1st @ The Blue Note

Stryker/Slagle Band- for the Grateful Web

Here on their fourth release as co-leaders of a dynamic quartet, West Orange guitar ace Dave Stryker and NYC-based saxophonist Steve Slagle continue to mix the jazz tradition with the music's more forward-looking side. The results can be deep and bluesy one moment, more angular and abstract the next. As on Slagle's "Skee," a spunky, riff-built whose theme resolves warmly. Here, Slagle and guest tenorman Joe Lovano explore the tune's edges while Stryker comes in like a seasoned bluesman with his hearty remarks. The guitarist's title track is of a contemporary lyrical bent, as the leaders and bassist Jay Anderson wax song-like, modern-style, with drummer Victor Lewis creating colorful washes along with a stirring ride beat on his cymbals. Slagle's alluring "Six Four Teo" has a similar lyrical sense - with telling solos - but with a percolating 6/4 rhythm.
