“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 art 
in 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 20105

“…Reflects the solid mainstream – modern style and emotionally forthright commitment that has been a hallmark of Stryker’s playing for well over three decades. 
All ten guests seem inspired by the spirit of Mister T, playing with a direct, visceral feel for the material to produce what is one of the best recent all-star tribute albums.”
George Kanzler – Hot House May 2015
