Description
The caliber of the artistry in this tribute is a testament to the singular and vast talent that was Laura Nyro.

Grammy-winning composer–pianist Billy Childs and all-star cast dig into her songbook in a highly creative, cross-genre fashion that would doubtless win Nyro's approval. Renée Fleming is joined by Yo-Yo Ma on "New York Tendaberry," Ricky Lee Jones and Chris Potter handle "Been on a Train," Lisa Fischer (of 20 Feet from Stardom fame) sings "Map to the Treasure," Shawn Colvin and Chris Botti duet on "Save the Country," Alison Krauss and Jerry Douglas lead "And When I Die," Dianne Reeves solos on "To a Child," Esperanza Spalding and Wayne Shorter address "Upstairs by a Chinese Lamp," and R&B chanteuse Ledisi leads Nyro's immortal anthem "Stoned Soul Picnic."

"Nyro was an intensely emotional powerhouse of a singer–songwriter who, over the course of a 30-year career, wrote huge hits for others…. Boldly reinterprets and recontextualizes her songs, drawing on jazz and chamber music, while retaining the joyous blend of Brill Building pop, soul, gospel and jazz that made Nyro such an original."—Down Beat
