As Spyro Gyra contemplates upcoming milestones to its storied career, it's tempting to fall back on the Grateful Dead lyric, "What a long strange trip it's been" to describe it. During that time, they have performed over five thousand shows, released twenty-nine albums (not counting "Best Of…" compilations) selling over ten million albums while also achieving one platinum and two gold albums. What's more, 2013 marks thirty-six years since their first eponymous album release. 2014, only a year away, will mean forty years as a band!

After six studio albums and a suitcase of tour CDs, collaborations with the likes of Victoria Williams, Iron & Wine, Willie Nelson, Roger McGuinn and Nancy Sinatra, the Tucson, AZ based Calexico reconvened in New Orleans to record their new CD, ALGIERS. Their work has spoken of dusty deserts and the loners that inhabit them, mixing America's country music heritage with that of a Latin persuasion. In other words, it isn't obviously affiliated with the sounds that have made New Orleans one of the premiere tourist destinations in the US. What's emerged as a result of this decision, however, is arguably the most exciting and accessible record Calexico have made. At Tarrytown Music Hall in Tarrytown.
