Spyro Gyra / Press

“On Top Contemporary Jazz Albums, Spyro Gyra's 'Down The Wire' bows at No. 4, the group's highest debut. The act now holds the record for the most top 10s on this chart, with 19.”


“Down the Wire … combines jazz with elements of rock, funk, and soul — which, of course, is what fusion is all about…there is no fluff on this 65-minute CD, which finds the Spyro Gyra of 2009 acting a lot like the freewheeling Spyro Gyra of the ‘70s and early ‘80s.”

All Music Guide

“Spyro Gyra has a snap, originality and fresh sound that makes them appeal to listeners who would never listen to, say, a smooth jazz radio station.”

Audiophile Audition

“It’s been 30 years since (they) released their one and only crossover hit, ‘Morning Dance.’ Changes ... as to what gets played on the radio pretty much guarantee the group will not score another; that’s unfortunate, because they continue to make eye-opening, jaw-dropping music.”


“It's been over three decades since Spyro Gyra started out, but this record is full of youthful energy. They bring everything that they are known for into this record. Jazz, funk, groovy, soulful, and smooth are often summed up into one word: fusion. This album is such a joy to listen to.”


“Their recent releases have been very strong but this one takes it to an entirely different level…The band may have been around for over three decades and, at a point when some would be settling down or settling in, these guys never stop moving forward.”
