Spyro Gyra at Spirit Cruises
Smooth-jazz radio station CD101.9 might be a memory now, but the Smooth Jazz Cruises sail on. Opening the tenth-annual season is contemporary-jazz mainstay Spyro Gyra, and if you think we’re automatically going to trash the long-running Buffalo band, you’re wrong. Now a tight quintet, Spyro Gyra plays its unabashedly populist funk-jazz with an infectious swagger; on the river with the band, you’ll surely be hearing tunes from its latest Heads Up release, Down the Wire.
