Guitarist, composer and educator Dave Stryker has been involved with many groups as leader (with 28 CDs as a leader to date), and co-leader of The Stryker/Slagle Band, and as a featured sideman with Stanley Turrentine, Jack McDuff. The Village Voice calls him “one of the most distinctive guitarists to come along in recent years.” He was recently voted once again into the 2017 Downbeat Readers and Critics Polls. He comes to Baltimore with saxophonist Eric Alexander who has 60+ albums in his catalog. He has earned praise from critics and, even more important, established his own voice within the bebop tradition. Baltimore’s own mutli-instrumentalist Warren Wolf will be featured on this program.

Singularly talented pianist and five-time Grammy Award nominee Christian Sands is stretching into exciting progressive territory as he breaks new ground traversing from the straight-ahead zone into fresh-sounding music influenced by a range of styles. He takes a fresh look at the entire language of jazz: stride, swing, bebop, progressive, fusion, Brazilian and Afro-Cuban.  At only 27 years old, “Sands is skilled, soulful and melodic throughout, his energy and spirit altering with each tune” (Noisey).
