Experimenting with form and feeling, the innovative work of singer/songwriter Laura Nyro shares a connection with modern poetry and art and her songs have inspired musicians and music lovers for decades. Her material draws from soul, jazz, blues, R&B, and folk-rooted music, along with a modern classical influence. Laura joined Columbia Records in 1968 and released Eli And The Thirteenth Confession. The summer of 1969 brought New York Tendaberry followed by Christmas And the Beads of Sweat at the end of 1970. These three classic albums represent a litany of songwriting craft to this day. The latter, produced by Felix Cavaliere and Arif Mardin, features her charting single cover of Gerry Goffin and Carole King's "Up on the Roof," and also boasts appearances by Duane Allman, Alice Coltrane and the Swampers band from Muscle Shoals.
