Guitarist Dave Stryker, who got his start working with Jack McDuff and Stanley Turrentine stretches the boundaries of the organ sound while keeping the groove deep on his new CD "Blue Strike" (SteepleChase 31729).
Once again Dave teams with young Hammond organ phenom Jared Gold, as well as legendary drummer Billy Hart, and adds to the front line two rising stars with their own sounds; Freddie Hendrix on trumpet and Stephen Riley on tenor sax.
Dave burns through his new arrangements of Clifford Brown's "Joy Spring", "Daahoud" and Duke Pearson's "Jordu", and rounds out the serious groove of this CD with four of his own originals, as well as a swinging version of Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean".
