Most influential comptemporary Jazz Band of all time!!!!

I believe their music has influenced most jazz bands today. I started listening to Spyro when I was 15yo. When rock n roll bands like kiss, bto, aerosmith, ac/dc, van halen were ruling the music scene. I found them to be soothing and fun. I found out later how brilliant these musicians really are. Their horns and percussion are second to none. You have to own this greatest hits cd!!!! you'll see.

Best of Spyro Gyra 1997

This album is a must have if you're a fan of Spyro Gyra. You'll listen again and again. Enjoy!

A Big Influence On Down the Line

I remember loving them the summer of 1979 so much. I also remember two "friends" that thought because of me loving this music as I did, well it was their JOKE or so they thought between themselves. In other words, because I was listening to this "here today gone tomorrow" music, they loved me but just KNEW I MUST HAVE HAD A TIN EAR! Well, guess who is still making music that people the world over can relate to? I have not heard from them since they had five kids and divorced each other, that is tragic. It is what it is, let people listen to what they like and quit judging each other, we all carry much more than the casual eye would detect. This still makes me happy to listen to.

The band became a full-time venture in 1976 and has been touring ever since. Critics love to attack this band's music, which combines R&B and elements of pop and Caribbean music with jazz, but its live performances are often stimulating -- unlike many of its records, which emphasize the danceable melodies. The roots of Spyro Gyra lay in Buffalo,...
