The Stryker Slagle Band has released five CD's, most recently "Keeper" (2010. That CD is composed mostly of originals by both Stryker and Slagle, along with Thelonious Monk's "Ruby My Dear." The band was a critical hit at New York's Jazz Standard club earlier this year, and is making frequent tour dates throughout the year.
In addition to gigs as the Stryker Slagle Band, both leaders and sidemen are active on stage and in the studio in the New York City area and beyond. Stryker is also a clinician for Aebersold workshops.
