|JAZZ GUITAR GREATS TO PERFORM IN TAMPA:
Dave Stryker and Peter Bernstein,
Appearing on January 28 & 29
The Tampa Jazz Club is proud to announce concerts by two of the leading guitarists
in the jazz world, on consecutive days in late January. The Tampa Jazz Guitar
Summit will first feature the DAVE STRYKER QUINTET, in the Mainstage Theatre
at HCC/Ybor City, on Sunday, January 28, at 3:00, part of the HCC Visual &
Performing Arts Series. And the following evening at the USF Concert Hall, PETER
BERNSTEIN will perform with the USF FACULTY JAZZ ENSEMBLE at 7:30 p.m.,
part of the Monday Night Jazz Series presented in conjunction with the USF School
DAVE STRYKER returns to Tampa following his remarkable concert at HCC/Ybor in
March, 2015, and appearances later that year at the Clearwater Jazz Holiday. His
latest recording, ‘Strykin’ Ahead,’ is his 28th as a leader, and reached the #3 spot in
the Jazz Week national radio chart. Stryker played for more than a decade with
saxophonist Stanley Turrentine, and has worked extensively with Jack McDuff,
the late Kevin Mahogany, and with Steve Slagle in the Stryker/Slagle Band.
For the HCC concert, he’ll be joined by Jack Wilkins, saxophone;
Chris Rottmayer, piano; Charlie Silva, bass; and Walt Hubbard, drums.
PETER BERNSTEIN has been one of the most sought-after musicians in jazz for
more than 25 years. After playing through the 90’s with saxophone legend Lou
Donaldson, he has worked with bands led by Sonny Rollins, Joshua Redman,
Diana Krall, and Dr. Lonnie Smith, among many others, appearing on more than
80 recordings along the way. At January’s Monday Night Jazz, Bernstein will
perform with the USF Jazz Faculty, featuring fellow guitarist
LaRUE NICKELSON; CHRIS ROTTMAYER, keyboards;
MARK NEUENSCHWANDER, bass; and RIC CRAIG, drums.
Two days, two beautiful Tampa concert halls – and two of the world’s most exciting
jazz guitarists (who happen to be longtime friends).
Why choose just one?
Hope to see you for both Sunday Afternoon, and Monday Night Jazz,
at the January Tampa Jazz Guitar Summit!
