"Spero Plays Nyro" by Christine and Elliot Spero

Christine has fully recaptured Laura’s spirit and passion with beautiful renditions running the breadth and depth of Laura's emotions. Saxophonist/percussionist, Elliot Spero, adds excellent sax solos, flutes and multiple percussion accents. In February 2015 the group released their latest Cd, Spero Plays Nyro. Available at Cd Baby, iTunes, Amazon and streaming on Pandora Radio....
