“Christine Spero and I shared a bill and I knew that she was doing atribute to my old friend Laura Nyro, but I wasn’t for just how amazing Christine’s performance
turned out to be." - Steve Katz (Blood,Sweat and Tears and the Blues Project)
In this heartfelt and moving tribute to Laura Nyro, one of the greatest and most covered songwriters of the 20th century, pianist and singer Christine Spero and
her group take the listener on an unforgettable journey through some of Laura’s most memorable songs.

Robert Ellis has named his new album after himself and the reason is clear. The
album is both his most personal statement yet and a summation of his career
thus far. Robert Ellis opens with "Perfect Strangers," a meditation on what brings
people together (and how tenuous that connection can be), and ends with "It's
Not OK," a raw look at emotional compromise.
