O’s Notes: One of our favorite jazz guitarists is Dave Stryker. He assembles a quartet with Jared Gold on the B3, tenor saxophonist Walter Smith III, and drummer McClenty Hunter. Mayra Casales adds percussion on three selections. They play swinging blues like “Everything I Love”, jazz-fusion like “El Camino” and the mellow “Superstar” with soulful undertones. They don’t abandon the 8-Track followers with covers of “Inner City Blues” and Love Dance” to round out a fine set on Baker’s Circle.
