Guitarist Dave Stryker and Saxophonist Steve Slagle have been developing their own group sound for over 20 years. "Latest Outlook", their 3rd CD as The Stryker / Slagle Band, follows last year's "Live at the Jazz Standard" (Zoho Music). The latest edition of The SSB includes bassist Jay Anderson and drummer Victor Lewis who have played with Dave and Steve off and on since the beginning. Joining them this week at Dizzy's will be longtime friend - the great saxophonist Joe Lovano who guested on the new CD. Dave Stryker spent over 13 years with Stanley Turrentine, and also worked with Jack McDuff, Kevin Mahogany and Eliane Elias. He has 20 CD's out as a leader, and has been a sideman on over 50 others. Saxophonist Steve Slagle has released 10 CD's as a leader, and performed as a sideman on countless others. He has played with Machito, Ray Barretto, Charlie Haden, Milton Nascimento, Carla Bley, The Mingus Big Band, and Joe Lovano's Nonet.
