AC hits of Spyro Gyra 1976-1985


During the years 1976-1985, smooth jazz/instrumental pop group Spyro Gyra scored 5 hits on Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, including one chart-topper.  Here's a breakdown table, including year, peak chart position, and number of weeks on the AC charts. The table is followed by a Spotify playlist to help you determine how many tunes you remember.  Songs like the one listed below helped introduce me to the group, which has been one of my favorites for 35 years.  I've seen the group in concert multiple times and owned many of their albums on vinyl, cassette, and I'm currently looking at 23 of the group's CDs on my shelves.
