Title - As We Are
Artist - Dave Stryker

Whether you’ve heard guitarist Dave Stryker leading his own group (with 30 CD’s as a leader to date), or as a featured sideman with Stanley Turrentine, Jack McDuff, and many others, you know why the Village Voice calls him “one of the most distinctive guitarists to come along in recent years.”

Oh, and he was recently voted once again into the 2020 Downbeat Poll for the 11th time!

Dave’s latest project As We Are, arrives Jan 7th, 2022 via Strikezone Records and features John Patitucci (bass), Brian Blade (drums), Julian Shore (piano) and even a string quartet!

1. Overture
2. Lanes
3. River Man
4. Hope
5. Saudade
6. One Thing At A Time
7. As We Were
8. Dreams Are Real
9. Soul Friend

This beautifully crafted new album opens on the short, but sweet Overture before rolling seamlessly into the cinematic tones of Lanes and the atmospherically-charged River Man, next bringing us one of my own personal favorites, the hypnotizingly dulcet Hope.

Next up is the languishingly beautiful Saudade and the gently frenetic One Thing At A Time which are in turn backed by the achingly poignant ebb and flow of As We Were, the album rounding out on the artistically cultured gossamer of Dreams Are Real, coming to an all-too-soon close on the laid back, late night smoky club vibe of Soul Friend.
