Spero Plays Nyro, considered the finest Laura Nyro Tribute on the scene today, will honor Laura Nyro, one of the greatest and most covered songwriters of the 20th century, by performing a special Diamond Anniversary Concert at The Iridium, the world-famous jazz, rock, and blues club best known as the "Home of Les Paul," on Nov. 19, 2022.
In this heartfelt and moving tribute to Laura Nyro, pianist, singer Christine Spero and The Christine Spero Group, take the listener on an unforgettable journey through some of Laura's most memorable songs including: "Sweet Blindness", "Eli's Comin", "And When I Die", "Stoned Soul Picnic" and so many more.
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.
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. She earned numerous accolades for her melodic, emotionally powerful and soulful writing and has received strong press from USA Today, Billboard, All About Jazz, JazzTimes, JAZZIZ, Time Out New York, and The Village Voice.
