"There are two different styles that flow back and forth from song to song on this cd. They are smooth jazz and modern jazz. The album starts off with a very heavy smooth jazz influenced piece, the title track, Heart Of The Night. The album takes a wild turn with Julio Fernandez's De La Luz, with a spanish feel. A huge detour, in a music style sense. Back to the two main music styles, Valentino's. A great heavy latin, but very modern jazz influenced piece. A Tom Schuman original, and heavy piano solos. There is one more smooth jazz piece. A tune by bassit, Scot Ambush. Rather a boring piece, but worth the listen. Believe, is a standout, because it's very happenin'. Midnight, sounds like it's going to just be a funky/rock piece, but it turns into a swing. You might not like this album at first. Give it a few listens, and it might grow on you. This is a rather diverse, but experimental album. Many Spyro Gyra fans hate it when you call Spyro Gyra a smooth jazz band. And for the most part, they're definately not, but on some occassions, there has been smooth jazz influenced songs. This is one of those occassions. Check this cd out, it's a pretty nice recording effort by Spyro Gyra."
A very good CD by a very good band...

"All of the tunes are melodic but groovie... great work by Jay and the guys!"
One of Spyro Gyra's best efforts.

"This album starts off with a kick. The fast pumping tempo of Heart of the Night gets the blood pumping. Julio's De La Luz is an awesome song that brings out his vocal talents as well as his guitar work. Westwood Moon is my favorite song on this album. This is the pure Spyro Gyra sound that I love. Scott Ambush's bass work is incredible in this one. The rest of the album is pretty good but it does not compare to the first three cuts. Still worth the money to add to your collection."
