"Spyro Gyra -- it sounds just like what we do. It sounds like motion and energy".
Since the release of Morning Dance in 1979, with its famous Calypso-inspired title track that quickly became a Top 40 single and is still in heavy rotation on jazz radio, Spyro Gyra has been a mainstay on the contemporary jazz scene.
In 2001 Spyro Gyra signed a record-deal with Heads Up International and subsequently recorded In Modern Times, an album that spent 64 weeks on Billboard's contemporary jazz charts, peaking at #2. Two years later the band released Original Cinema, followed by The Deep End in 2004. Both albums logged considerable time on Billboard's contemporary jazz charts. The Grammy nomination for Wrapped in a dream in 2006 reaffirmed the fact that these veterans are still formidable contenders in the contemporary jazz arena.
The band continues to reinvent itself with the release of Good to Go-Go in the spring of 2007.
