Laura Nyro - An Evening With Laura Nyro mp3 album
Officially titled Laura, and subtitled (and usually referred to as) Laura Nyro Live at the Bottom Line, this disc has been out of print since the mid-'90s, and so for many listeners it's like finding a long lost, intimate photo album, or even a home movie, of a deceased beloved friend or relative. It catches Nyro at her most delightfully assertive, ranging across her whole musical history, from "And When I Die" to "The Japanese Restaurant Song," with very personalized detours into numbers like "Up on the Roof" and "Hi Heel Sneakers" (gee, Laura.
Impressions is the first compilation retrospective album by Bronx-born singer, songwriter, and pianist Laura Nyro. It was released in the UK in 1980 and features material from her first four albums for Verve and Columbia Records, completely omitting material after 1970.
The album was nominated for three Grammys, with the "New York Tendaberry" track featuring Renee Fleming and Yo-Yo Ma winning for Best Arrangement, Instrumental and Vocals. In 2015, The Christine Spero Group released "Spero Plays Nyro", the Music of Laura Nyro along with a highly acclaimed live tour. The song was first released in 1968 as the sixth song of Nyro's album, Eli and the Thirteenth Confession. Eli and the Thirteenth Confession.
Laura Nyro was among the most gifted singer-songwriters of the Sixties and Seventies, and one of the first female singer-songwriters who didn’t come from the folk-music world. Her music reflected a combination of spirituality and street smarts. Bursting with talent, she possessed a soulful soprano, a commanding touch on the piano, and an arsenal of songs that drew from R&B, soul, gospel, jazz, Brill Building pop and Broadway show tunes. However, she had a fanatical cult following, and many of her songs became popular in the hands of others. Nyro was raised in New York City, where she heard and studied all kinds of music.
Analog Spark has reissued two of Laura Nyro’s most acclaimed albums, New York Tendaberry and Eli & The Thirteenth Confession, on 180-gram vinyl.
I loved Laura Nyro back in the day, but I think I worried about her too much. Yep, she didn't need me fretting over her artistic and commercial ups and downs, wondering if she was too depressed or bitter to soldier on musically. She was certainly a sensitive soul, and perhaps truly one of those true artists whose brush with fame was more harmful than helpful to her overall development.
