O’s Notes: A Foreign Affair takes Spyro Gyra into a number of different music forms but always integrated with their time-tested jazz-fusion. There are a few vocal tracks. We liked “Chileno Boys” with Julio Fernandez singing and “Last Call” featuring Keb’ Mo’. We enjoyed the mild bossa nova beats of “Samba for Two”, “Canão de Ninar” and “Antigua”. The blending Latin jazz with their trademark contemporary smooth jazz is a fresh combination that works well. “Sweet Ole Thang” is another winner and tops off another winning effort for this seasoned band.
