When guitarist Dave Stryker visited Morning Jazz to celebrate his new recording, Eight Track III, the nostalgia of musical evergreens of the 1960s and ‘70s was pushed forward with a soulful modern turn.
Featuring organist Jared Gold, vibraphonist Stefon Harris, drummer McClenty Hunter and percussionist Mayra Casales, the Eight Track Band filled the WBGO performance studio with a fresh look back at the music of Curtis Mayfield, Stevie Wonder, The Temptations and Roy Ayers, finding new ways of reminding us why we still feel so deeply about this music today.
Watch the band play their version of The Temptations' "Papa Was a Rolling Stone."
