Wonderful quote from Charlie Calello! We are so honored!
 
"I was called upon by Columbia Records to work with Laura Nyro in
arranging and developing her legendary album Eli and the
Thirteenth Confession so I can say with confidence that Christine
Spero's rendition of Laura's work passes the litmus test with flying
colors".....
Charlie Calello, composer, conductor, arranger & record producer

 "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" -

CD Review From Laura Nyro's brother.

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
