The Stryker / Slagle Band Keeper (Panorama Records PAN003) Street Date June 1, 2010

After a successful two-night run at the Jazz Standard in January, The Stryker / Slagle Band decided to strike while the fire was hot and 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 3rd 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.

“A superior snapshot of the contemporary center of jazz" --John McDonough, Downbeat Magazine

“One of today's most inspired two-man teams." --David Adler, JazzTimes

“In this era of ever-shifting alliances and endless maleable bands, guitarist Dave Stryker and saxophonist Steve Slagle have achieved, for two decades, a contemporary rarity; a band with a distinct, highly developed sound." --George Kanzler, JazzTimes
