Laura Nyro defies definition or comparison, she is where the female singer/songwriter movement begins. She didn't merge genres - she removed them, jazz meets pop meets country meets Broadway meets gospel,
"Time and Love: The Essential Masters" is an impressive retrospective of her work. The album compiles Nyro's distinctive renditions of sixteen of her most famous songs, as well as some lesser known selections from her songbook, only one of the recordings was made after 1970 before she was 25 years old.  The level of depth, insight, and intensity that emerged from a woman who was so young speaks to her incredible talent.

Every song is sung with joy, passion and pure belief - Nyro sang because it was in her soul to do so, she carries you along, celebrating her gifts as writer, pianist and vocalist. She wrote from her heart and soul and on her own recordings, she sang from there, too.


"Laura Nyro virtually invented a ripped-from-the-soul, stream-of-conscious streetwise style that has inspired countless songwriters..."
