Dave Stryker

    Whether you've heard guitarist Dave Stryker fronting his own group (with 17 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 Downbeat Magazine Critics and Readers Poll and a Rising Star in the 2004 Downbeat Magazine Critics Poll.

    Dave Stryker grew up in Omaha, Nebraska and moved to New York City in 1980. After establishing himself in the local music scene, he joined organist Jack McDuff's group in 1984 and toured the U.S. for two years. Stryker played with tenor saxophonist Stanley Turrentine from 1986 to 1995, performing at major festivals, concert halls and clubs throughout the world.

    He is featured on two Turrentine CDs and played with jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie and Freddie Hubbard during this period. Dave has released 17 CDs as a leader, mostly on the Steeple Chase label. Blue to the Bone III was voted one of the top CD's of 2002 by WBGO, the top jazz station in the New York City area, and by Jazz Review.com.

    Dave released two CDs in 2004 - Trio Mundo Rides Again on Zoho and Shades Beyond, featuring drummer Lenny White, on Steeple Chase. Stryker has recorded and published over eighty of his own compositions. Other artists who have recorded his music are Stanley Turrentine, Kevin Mahogany, Victor Lewis, Steve Slagle and Ultrablue. Dave continues to perform with longtime-partner Steve Slagel in their working unit, The Stryker / Slagle Band.

    His other current projects include The Blue to the Bone Band, The Shades Project with Lenny White, and his latest group Trio Mundo, featuring Manolo Badrena on percussion and vocals and Andy McKee on bass. Recent gigs for The Stryker / Slagle Band have included the Monterey Jazz Festival, The Blue Note in Las Vegas, The Jazz Bakery in LA, and a 2003 tour of Japan. In addition to private lessons, Dave teaches at Outreach Jazz Workshop in Austria, the Litchfield Jazz Fest Summer Music School and the Aebersold Summer Jazz Workshop.

Dave Stryker - Jazz Guitar Improvisation Method - Book and Online Audio
Dave explains his approach to jazz improvisation with musical examples that he himself uses, learned from years of playing with the greats (Grant Green, Wes Montgomery, Pat Martino). He explains the minor sub approach using minor scales to play over dominant seventh chords and then includes several solos over often-played jazz standards using this approach. Also described are the use of the blues and pentatonic scales as well as be-bop ideas, the melodic minor scale, and whole-tone and diminished scales and patterns. Hanon-type warm up exercises and Dave's own fingerings shown in tab are also described. Dave's concise way of explaining his approach will open up the students to developing their own improvisational ideas. Songs include: "Autumn Leaves, All The Things You Are, I Got Rhythm, Cherokee, Giant Steps". He also plays the examples and solos on the companion CD including tracks with a rhythm only section for student play-along.
