His latest album Dreams Beyond leaves the listener wanting more— a great line up of musicians from Juini Booth to Ikue Mori. Spanos' drumming is masterful. As a result, these fine musicians will take the listeners on a dream- like musical journey through time, from the sounds of the past to the sonic landscapes of the future and back. -JazzCorner-

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
