Point of View is the thirteenth album by the American jazz group Spyro Gyra, released in June 1989 by GRP Records. At Billboard magazine, the album peaked at No. 120 on the Top 200 Albums chart. Slow Burn (Dave Samuels) – 4:07. Swing Street (Jay Beckenstein) – 5:13. Fairweather (Tom Schuman) – 4:46. The Unknown Soldier (Beckenstein) – 5:16. Hannibal's Boogie (Beckenstein) – 5:59. No Limits (Beckenstein) – 4:41. Carolina (Richie Morales) – 4:34. Riverwalk (Samuels) – 4:29.
The problem is that Spyro Gyra's slower and more impressionistic tunes have always been their most interesting, and the lack of ballads is a fairly big strike against Point of View. Also, the too-concise arrangements - only the woefully misnamed "Swamp Thing" breaks the six-minute barrier, and over half the songs don't even hit five - keeps the group members, who are all fine soloists when they get the opportunity, from breaking out long enough to really build something interesting.
