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-
