"When I saw that Spyro had done an album of covers, I cringed. Then I was terrified to begin listening. Then I listened. Now I can't stop listening. Jay and the guys have pulled off an incredible feat. An entire album of incredible 'covering' of great songs instrumentally. And the more times you listen, the better they get. Everyone's taking off on their different instrument solos is captivating. Drum solos aren't 'drum solos' here. Bass solos aren't just 'bass solos' here. Because of Spyro's SO distinctive players, what normally would be just those bass and drum solos with Spyro just further define these incredible classic rock songs. This album is positively fabulous.” - Art Good, Jazztrax Radio

As Spyro Gyra looks forward to 2020 and beyond, they show no sign of slowing down. Over the last 40+ years, they have performed over five thousand shows, released thirty-one albums (not counting “Best Of…” compilations) selling over ten million albums while also achieving one platinum and two gold albums. Although few acts have accomplished this type of record, they have done it by constantly challenging themselves as is evidenced by their last studio release “The Rhinebeck Sessions” which was written and recorded over three days in the studio.

"Two things remain consistent at all her shows though: her throaty but cushiony voice, which has a sort of hard-mattress comfort to it that’s part Bonnie Raitt, part Etta James and a little Amy Winehouse; and her band’s rollicking New Orleans flavor, driven home by dueling horn players and a bayou-thick standup bass." -Chris Riemenschneider, Star Tribune
