Listening to Now: Spyro Gyra - "Morning Dance"

By Richard K. Barry

A lot of music fans claim to dislike what is known as smooth jazz, sometimes likening it to elevator music. I don't know. I'm okay with some of it, like Spyro Gyra's 1979 album Morning Dance. I particularly like the title track.

The one thing I will say about the cut, having worked in radio briefly in the late 1970s, is that the song seemed to be everyone's idea of segueway music into or out of a segment of some kind. You know, music played just before "News at Noon."
