Since September 2010, this blog has recorded the journey of this middle-aged man as I attempt to listen to all the music in my CD collection. CDs revisited in their entirety from start to finish - no skipping tracks, no shuffle. CDs only - no vinyl, no tapes, no downloads. And just as CD technology (and the album format itself) becomes obsolete. I'm no music critic, just a music junkie with too much time on my hands.

Spyro Gyra - Three Wishes (1992)


The 24th Spyro Gyra CD to appear on this blog.  To be honest, I lost touch with SG during the late '80s/early '90s as I was getting married, having children, starting a career - you know, adulting. So I missed this album the first time around, but found it in a used bin more than 20 years after the fact. While I wouldn't put this up there with the group's best output, it's an enjoyable listen and works very well in a full SG shuffle (which I do more often than I'll admit to here).  I'm not saying the band doesn't like it, but they recorded a live album a few years after this album was released and none of Three Wishes' tracks appear on that disc.

Billboard, June 6, 1992

Peak on the US Billboard Top 200 chart: Did not chart
Peak on Billboard's Contemporary Jazz Albums chart: #4

Tracks:  My faves are Pipo's Song, the title track, and Cabana Carioca.
