Spero Plays Nyro
Covers, Jazz, and Pop/Soft Rock
by
THE CHRISTINE SPERO GROUP

"Christine Spero and I shared a bill and I knew that she was doing a tribute to my old friend Laura Nyro, but I wasn’t prepared for just how amazing Christine’s performance turned out to be. She was able to channel Laura with all the feeling and intelligence that the music warranted, but, at the same time, made Laura’s music her own." - Steve Katz (Blood, Sweat and Tears and the Blues Project)

“Christine can play and sing Laura’s songs like few others. I'm so glad she did such a beautiful job with my sister's music" - Jan Nigro - brother of Laura Nyro "Excellent work and obviously a labor of love" - Felix Cavaliere

"You do this so good!" - John Sebastian

Pianist, singer Christine Spero and her group take the listener on a journey through some of Laura’s most memorable works- poignant and timeless. The arrangements are hip, the vocals are beautiful, the musicianship is stellar, and true to Nyro’s originals. Drummer Peter O'Brien and bassist Scott Petito create a rhythm section that keeps the music driving and steady but never imposing.

Christine is keeping Laura's flame burning strong!

“Laura’s music is in fine hands with Christine Spero who is a terrific musician. She can play and sing Laura’s songs like few others. She knows this music inside out, and rises to the challenge on each song singing with expressiveness and power. At times her voice sounds like she could be Laura’s twin sister! It's such challenging music to sing, and she does it so beautifully. I don't think I've ever heard anyone who's voice naturally sounds as much like Laura's as Christine's does (although it is certainly distinguished in it's own way). I also thoroughly enjoyed Christine's original song, "Laura and John". The arrangements are true to Laura’s originals but with some sweet creative touches as well. The band members are all pros and Christine can really play that piano! Laura’s fans should really enjoy this recording. Christine is a very talented woman, and I'm so glad she did such a beautiful job with my sister's music." Jan Nigro - Brother of Laura Nyro
