Spyro Gyra

2014 presents a dual milestone year for jazz's legendary innovators Spyro Gyra. First is that it marks 40 years as a band; second is the 35th anniversary of their breakthrough platinum album Morning Dance, which was the musical achievement which truly introduced them to the world at large. To observe these dual anniversaries, the band is going to present a never-before-seen event for its fans: They will perform the entire Morning Dance album in sequence for the first time ever in its career! This will be the first half of the show—with the second half being highlights of the rest of their career in music. It's a performance you won't want to miss!

Artist Bio

In April 2013, Jay Beckenstein and the members of Spyro Gyra entered a recording studio in Rhinebeck, NY, a small town in the Hudson Valley not too far from Woodstock. Beckenstein and his bandmates set out to do something that they had never done before in their nearly forty year history – improvise with each other over three days and in the process write and record an entire new album.

“As I thought about doing another record, I asked myself, what is it that makes Spyro Gyra special?” Beckenstein explains, “I decided that it was the fact that we have been together so long that the communication between us has become almost mystical. Our ability to improvise on the fly has become so strong because we have played together so much. It was time to go into the studio with very little planned and see what might come out of it.”

Beckenstein concedes, “It was a bit of a gamble but we’re lucky to have a loyal fan base that are probably going to be interested in what we’re doing. I was also fairly confident that whatever came out of it would be pretty close to the way we have approached our live shows for years.
