O’s Notes: Guitarist Dave Stryker teams up with Steve Slagle (s), Bill Moring (b), Tim Horner (d) and percussionist Manolo Badrena to form his quintet. The music, mostly new material, is a sophisticated fusion including a couple of cool ballads, a few syncopated meters [5/4 and 7/4], and a couple of cookers. We liked “Big Mouth” and “Circular Scene” best for their nice beats and fresh feel. buy at:
