Spyro GyraSpyro Gyra is a jazz juggernaut who released their 30th album of new material The Rhinebeck Sessions in 2013, which Jazztimes called "inspired". Travis Rogers of the Jazz Journalists Association picked it for Jazz Album Of The Year. Something Else Reviews called it "Their finest album since their early 80s heyday" and made it a TopTwenty pick for the year. George Harris of the Jazz Weekly enthused, "I gotta tell ya, these guys still sound GREAT." Not bad for a band observing its 40th anniversary in 2014.
