1998's Rites of Summer is the album on which Spyro Gyra once and for all abandons every pretense toward being anything other than a slickly commercial instrumental pop outfit with occasional feints toward the smoothest of smooth jazz. As always with Spyro Gyra, the slower and more impressionistic tunes are much more interesting than the upbeat songs.

This album usually is a favorite among Spyro fans."City Kids" swings, grooves, and everything in between. The opener, City Kids samples what is to come in the album. One thing that is different about this CD is that on every song, there is an ever changing cast of musicians. Spyro Gyra usually has this on an album while they're going through a personell change.

Stories Without Words is an exuberant Spyro Gyra record. It was released in 1987. It's one of their best recordings that I have ever heard from them. It ranks up their with the best of them. Exs. Point Of View, City Kids, Fast Forward. It seems to place its musical emphasis on the drums/percussion section and the vibes/marimba. It's a terrific CD with extraordinary melodies.

Spyro Gyra's first album for MCA after their longtime label, GRP-Crescendo, was absorbed into its corporate parent, 1990's Fast Forward carries the curious band subtitle "featuring Jay Beckenstein." Saxophonist Beckenstein has certainly always been the band's leader, writing a good chunk of the material and producing the albums, but given that the lineup is basically unchanged from the previous few Spyro Gyra albums, the new nomenclature is puzzling. It also goes against Spyro Gyra's entire musical aesthetic, as the group's unabashedly commercial and melodic style works against the traditional jazz concept of soloists and sidemen.

In 1990, the GRP record label took over MCA’s jazz artists, and as a result, Spyro Gyra had changed labels. Their next effort, Fast Forward, was released on GRP. After the release of Three Wishes in 1992, Spyro Gyra recruited Scott Ambush on bass. The following year, Dave Samuels decided to leave the band, although he periodically contributed to subsequent studio recordings. In 1997, Spyro Gyra celebrated their twentieth album release in 20 years with 20/20.Despite the ever-changing lineup, Beckenstein remained committed to the project over the years, as did their audiences.

Spyro Gyra is a jazz fusion band that was originally formed in the mid-1970s in Buffalo, New York, and has been influential in the development of smooth jazz. Although generally considered to be more "jazz" than "smooth", Spyro Gyra's music emphasizes melody over improvisation and combines jazz with elements of R&B, funk and pop music.
