As the band Spyro Gyra, saxophonist Jay Beckenstein and company have been combining (and varying) elements of fusion jazz, pop, funk, and world music for decades and across more than two dozen albums; they've made the charts and grooved audiences all over the world. But how does a casual fan or potential devotee approach a catalog as massive as Spyro Gyra's? The band's mid-priced 11-track volume in the MILLENNIUM COLLECTION series is as good a place to start as any. It opens with a live version of their signature hit, "Morning Dance," closes with an extended version of "Shaker Song," and in between provides a healthy sampling of what Spyro Gyra is all about.
