“Messin’ With Mr. T is an overdue, joyous homage to a master…One of the most satisfying records of the year.” 4 1/2 Stars
—Allen Morrison -DownBeat May 2015“Like Turrentine, Stryker is a perfect combination of accessible grooves, melodic expression, blues feeling and soul….Gospel-like joy throughout.”Owen Cordle -JazzTimes May 2015“Stryker’s multi-hued playing becomes a combustible force, a link to the blues of McDuff and Turrentine for sure, but also representing the state of the artin jazz guitar evolution….His playing is consummately beautiful, his choice of notes, Wes Montgomery -styled chordal runs, point-perfect solos and serious swing a joy framed by his well-chosen company.Surging through Stryker’s assorted gifts is his unique strength – a rock – bottom groove rare amid today’s jazz complexity sweepstakes.”Ken Micallef -New York City Jazz Record May 2015
