As Spyro Gyra looks forward to 2017 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.
"There is really no band out there that can produce a sense of pure joy as consistently and as often as Spyro Gyra and they have been doing it since their 1977 self-titled and self-produced first LP." - Travis Rogers/JazzTimes magazine.

With 11 number 1 hits, 2 Grammy nominations, and an American Music Award, Freddie Jackson is an R&B icon.
To urban contemporary listeners, Freddie Jackson is one of the biggest stars of the latter half of the ’80s, dominating the R&B charts seemingly at will. Jackson’s forte is sophisticated, romantic soul ballads aimed at adult audiences, but he was also capable of tackling urban contemporary dance fare and even the occasional jazz tune.
Jackson has two Platinum recordings: Rock Me Tonight topped the R&B album charts and went platinum. Jackson wasted no time issuing a follow-up set; Just Like the First Time appeared in 1986 on the heels of a number one R&B duet with Melba Moore, “A Little Bit More” (from her album A Lot of Love). Another platinum-seller, Just Like the First Time continued Jackson’s incredible dominance of the R&B singles charts.
With million-selling albums and adoring concert audiences, Mr. Jackson clearly sets a mood that people want to share. - Jon Pareles/New York Times
