Laura Nyro

As anyone who has ever been entranced by her music can attest, when Laura Nyro sings, time often stands still. Her smoky soprano soars with a power that is as hypnotic as it is daunting, and her meditations on life and love glide along an unfailingly soulful groove. This is Nyro's first studio album in nine years, but it finds the singer-songwriter's work as patently seductive as ever.
