If you haven’t ever heard the UVM Big Band (they recently performed with Arturo O’Farrill at the Flynn), you are in for an eye-opening treat. They are one hot ensemble. They’ll be joined by DAVE STRYKER, a masterful jazz guitarist known for his scorching fusion of jazz and blues. Guitarist for such greats as Stanley Turrantine and Jack Duff, Stryker has over 25 CD’s to his credit as a leader of his own band. Voted six times to the “Top Ten Guitarists” in the Downbeat Reader’s Poll, he is a charismatic and electric performer whom Pat Metheny has dubbed “one of the most joyous feels around.”
