In this heartfelt and moving tribute to Laura Nyro, one of the greatest and most covered songwriters of the 20th century, pianist, singer Christine Spero and her group take the listener on an unforgettable journey through some of Laura’s most memorable songs. Spero Plays Nyro reminds us that Laura’s music is poignant and timeless. The arrangements are hip, the vocals are beautiful, the musicianship is stellar. The exquisite arrangements are true to Laura’s originals but with many sweet creative touches, beautifully interpreted in the group’s own distinct style.

Christine has fully recaptured Laura’s spirit and passion with beautiful renditions running the breadth and depth of Laura's emotions. Drummer Peter O'Brien and bassist Scott Petito create a rhythm section that keeps the music driving and steady but never imposing. Saxophonist / percussionist, Elliot Spero, adds excellent sax solos,flutes and multiple percussion accents. In February 2015 the group released their latest Cd, Spero Plays Nyro. Available at Cd Baby, iTunes, Amazon and streaming on Pandora, Spotify & Youtube.

Christine Spero, Winner and Finalist of the USA Songwriting Competition Jazz/category, had her start in the music business as a teen with legendary producer Don Kirschner and Neil Sedaka.
