I also loved the singer-songwriters of the time including Carole King and Laura Nyro and later fell in love with Steely Dan’s music, and just wore out my copy of Hubert Laws’ Rite of Spring.” KJ co-produced her CD, Number 9, supported by a strong cadre of players, including longtime New York Unit band members Mamadou Ba , (Harry Belafonte, Regina Car ...

TODAY'S CUTE 60s not only a looker but was also an extremely talented and influential singer/songwriter/artist: Laura Nyro... who wrote quite a few hit songs for other artists and was admired and respected by musicians as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Bette Midler, Rickie Lee Jones, Kate Bush, Elton John, Cyndi Lauper, Todd Rundgren, Steely Dan, Duane Allmanand Melissa Manchester. Todd Rundgren stated that once he heard her, he "stopped writing songs like The Who and started writing songs like Laura." Cyndi Lauper acknowledged that her rendition of the song "Walk on By", on her Grammy Award-nominated 2003 cover album At Last, was inspired by Nyro. Elton John and Elvis Costello discussed Nyro's influence on both of them during the premiere episode of Costello's interview show Spectacle on the Sundance channel. When asked by the host if he could name three great performer/songwriters who have largely been ignored, he cited Nyro as one of his choices. John also addressed Nyro's influence on his 1970 . ...

So I am still working on my 12th book every single day and it is no joke. Did not help that my computer crashed the week of Christmas and I lost like mad pages and several days of writing. Yes, I definitely did back up, but still. Spent Christmas Day at an overly crowded Apple Store. That was crazy. Had to go back and start several pages and chapters from scratch, this memoir. But it is definitely flowing again. Days of not going out, not shaving, etc etc etc. Been listening to all kinds of music for inspiration (everything from Laura Nyro to Lauryn Hill to the LeBron Brothers to Joe Bataan to Duke Ellington to the Everly Brothers to the Beach Boys to Lupe Fiasco to classic Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, and Snoop to the jazzy vocals of Queen Latifah and Diana Krall) and watching a lot of movies (Meryl Streep rocks the house in "August: Osage County" and so does Bruce Dern in "Nebraska"). But at the end of the day writers must write, and must write alone. I pace a lot. I sit in silence a lot. I stare into space a ...
Announcing Kickstarter project: my book about Jimmy Webb and Laura Nyro and songwriting and the 5th Dimension and America
Laura Nyro (1947-1997) is one of my dear friend N's favorites. This video is made for her. La-La..., sweetie. :-} ** ...
Went to the music store looking for some Hip Hop on vinyl and came home with Laura Nyro instead. Yeah you could say my taste is eclectic!
It is so splendid right now. Snow on the lake. The golden retriever playing in the snow with his frisbee. Laura Nyro singing followed by Billie Holiday and me doing needlepoint in a comfy chair.
Are any of my FB friends fans of Laura Nyro? Watched a movie from Netflix on David Geffen and it brought back all kinds of memories about her and how much I loved her music. Have been listening to her all day. She was such a prolific song-writer and most people don't even know it's her stuff. I am feeling 21 just listening to the music she wrote for people like me.
Oh goody! We've got the Goodees! Plus a couple of Fats, the over-aliased Country Paul, the only good thing to come out of bad Grape jokes and 60's 'Frisco music, a little Zydecajun, and a great, if wildly multi-tempoed Laura Nyro joint. Oh, yeah, that reminds me…we have Max Roach, too! Join us! Saturday, Dec 14, 6P E, 3P P, on The Loft SiriusXM30 and online on Sirius On Demand.
