Dave Stryker; Groove Street

Considering one “groove” CD after another, one might easily surmise the guitarist Dave Stryker is pretty locked in to this style. This time he brings veteran sax man Bob Mintzer along for the ride. There's always an organist on these dates and this time the steamy B3 in the hands of Jared Gold. Completing the quartet is McClenty Hunter on drums. The two familiar choices are Wayne Shorter's “Infant Eyes” and the standard “The More I See You”. All the players are really good in finding that “guitar-organ” thing. Granted, there's a sameness to these “groove-funk” outings. Call it what you want, but this format always finds its followers.
