Guitarist Dave Stryker and Saxophonist Steve Slagle's quartet produces an expert, agile bit of modern jazz on Latest Outlook. This is the music's mainstream in plain view: compact and driving charts filled with tag-team post-bop, early 21st century complexity and a guest spot for saxophonist Joe Lovano." -Greg Buium Down Beat April 2007
This CD by Dave Stryker and Steve Slagle is a five star production. (Assuming 5 is the highest). The composition, the interplay, and the solos are all great." -Jack Wilkins Just Jazz Guitar February 2007
