ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Fresh off the success of Eight Track III (6 Weeks at #1 on the JazzWeek Radio Chart and still at the top of the charts) Dave Stryker and his Eight Track Band decided to go in and celebrate and make a Christmas CD for all the listeners and fans who have enjoyed and supported the music. Dave says: “It’s always crazy to be arranging and recording Christmas music in the hot summer, but I think I was able to put my stamp on this batch of Holiday favorites and make a pretty hip record along with the always groovin’ musical expressions of Stefon Harris, Jared Gold and McClenty Hunter. We put our ‘Eight Track’ vibe on these tunes!”

Stryker and the band do indeed put their stamp and vibe on more recent Christmas tunes such as Donny Hathaway’s “This Christmas”, John Lennon’s “Happy Xmas (War is Over), Vince Guaraldi’s “Christmas Time Is Here”, and a bluesy take on “Blue Christmas”. They also put a new Jazz spin on the Christmas classics “What Child is This”, “God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen”, “Sleigh Ride”, “We Three Kings”, and “O Tannenbaum” (featuring Steve Nelson from Eight Track II.) Perhaps the most fun is “Soulful Frosty” Stryker’s mash-up of Young-Holt Unlimited’s classic “Soulful Strut” and “Frosty the Snowman”!

So enjoy Dave Stryker’s Eight Track Christmas a hip and swingin’ update on these Holiday Classics.
