A Foreign Affair (2011) is the story of five guys and their love affair with the music of the world. This album from the venerable jazz group Spyro Gyra takes you on a journey to the music closest to them, which, in some cases, comes from places farthest from them. A Foreign Affair draws from the experiences of an enduring international career. It’s no secret that Spyro Gyra started out their career with the rhythms of the world. Since the samba rhythms and Caribbean feel of their early hits, these musicians have made it a point to embrace the music wherever they go. For instance, not long ago they played shows in New Jersey and Rochester, NY and then left the U.S. to perform in Turkey, Germany, Netherlands, Israel, India, Martinique and South Africa. That's in less than one month. That tour is something of what this new album sounds like, if you just add in a few more places.
