Spyro Gyra discuss the making of their new album "Down the Wire"

Biography

The patriarch of the famous aerialist family certainly knew what he was talking about after a lifetime of thrilling, edge-of-the-seat performances for his audiences. While the stakes might not be as high for a jazz band improvising in a recording studio or in front of a live audience, Spyro Gyra’s Jay Beckenstein understands the passion that drives a person and makes “life on the ...

Editorial Reviews

Product Description

The entity known as Spyro Gyra is a marathon runner in the arena of contemporary jazz. For more than three decades, moving across a musical landscape marked by increasingly challenging terrain and accelerated change, they have maintained the well-deserved reputation as a viable and highly versatile creative force. Since their earliest recordings in the mid 1970s, they have maintained a fresh approach to their craft by borrowing from a range of sources and distilling them into an unmistakable signature sound. This innovative and eclectic sensibility has earned the band nine GRAMMY nominations overall, and has fueled the sale of 11 million records Including one platinum and two gold records. In the midst of the achievements and accolades, Spyro Gyra keeps moving, having logged over 5,000 high-energy performances in their prestigious and prolific career. The band passes another milestone on this long-distance run with the June 12, 2007, release of Good To Go-Go on Heads Up International. The album is the band's twenty-sixth of their overall career and their fifth release on Heads Up, following on the heels of the GRAMMY nominated 2006 release Wrapped in a Dream (Best Pop Instrumental Album).

Amazon.com

Spyro Gyra leader Jay Beckenstein credits the addition of Trinidadian drummer Bonny B with juicing the long-running contemporary jazz band's sound, making it more "live-sounding." Wherever the stimulus came from, Good to Go-Go is one of the more forceful albums by Beckenstein and company. The drummer's Caribbean-style "Jam Up," featuring Andy Narell on steel drums and Bonny B on vocals, is infectious in a tightly wound way and melodically flavorful. With its modern harmonies, "The Left Band," with Christian Howe's guesting on violin, has an edge most such music lacks. Elsewhere, Spyro Gyra's funk-based sound is boosted by Julio Fernandez's wired guitar and lyrically colored by Tom Schuman's unplugged piano. This is the band's 26th album. Three decades on, it would seem, it is entering a promising new phase. --Lloyd Sachs

Customer Reviews

Great to listen on your commute to work.

The growling base work and the light airy piano along with the Sax makes this premire music.

Spyro Gyra has been grooving for years and they are like wine. better with age!

This is the best of Spyro Gyra's in years. After some average CD's like Original Cinema, The Deep End and Wrapped in a Dream they came with this one. The couldn't find a better tittle for this album because is really GOOD TO GO-GO. If you are a fan you will love this one but if you never heard them this is a good time to start doing it. Island time is the best track.

I've been listening to SG since 1981 - had all their early years stuff on vinyl and have seen/heard them several times in concert. They've always been jaw-droppingly amazing live and most of their studio sessions in the last few years have failed to capture the magic that is Spyro Gyra. Not this CD. Cut 1 with Tom Schuman growling on the Rhodes and Julio cruising out on guitar is well-worth the price of admiission alone. No group, and I mean no group, has the raw talent and musicianship that these guys do. This CD allows them all to stretch out and develop their solos and boy does this CD groove. Run, don't walk. . . . . Jay B and Co. have proven, once again, that they are the king of the contemporary jazz genre.

I miss the old drummer (Joel Rosenblatt). Otherwise, this is great with bass guitar, keyboards, and sax. It still sounds like good clean smooth jazz and if you like Spyro, you will like this. There is a difference between Spyro with Joel and Spyro without.

I was not expecting this cd to be this good. First of all the disc has sacd and cd layers. So if you have a blue ray player with the appropriate setup it will be great.

the music is great, modern sound and mixing and power mixed with spyrogyra's more traditional fast style with very shifting and moving melodies. The slap bass and vocals bring an even more awesome vibe to some songs. There is smooth, contemporary, crazy jazz and much more in between. Better than "the deep end" which was ok to nice. Better than even "down the wire" which itself is a very dynamic album. I say dynamic again and again, because their music shifts and moves in rhythm melody style force. I have been pretty down lately otherwise on life and that affects how you feel about any music you listen to. This is totally rockin'. I cannot believe that with so much stress around I have still enjoyed this disc.

oh, I live in Minnesota, and it has been a long winter, normally I either listen to, classical or heavy rock metal music around this time of the year.
this cd is a must for spyro fans who have some cds but not all. If you are thinking that you don't want all of spyrpgyra's cds. This is NOT ONE TO SKIP.

I got the rhineneback sessions and good to go-go together. Good to go go is better faster, more positive happy. Great to listen on your commute to work. Rhinebaxk sessions definitely has its moments too.

writing on small screen of phone please forgive typos and grammar.

thank you

Good to Go Go is another solid effort by Spyro Gyra. While the music doesn't stray far from their formula, it is solid jazz, more interesting musically than most of the "smooth jazz" out there. I could have done without the regaae/rap vocal tune. If you can, see them live: that's where their musicianship gets a chance to shine!
