An interesting "reimagining" of ten tunes by the late Laura Nyro by arranger and pianist Billy Childs for a small ensemble of winds and stings with various female vocalists and 'guest' musicians. The vocalists are Renee Fleming (with Yo-Yo Ma, cello), Becca Stevens, Lisa Fischer, Esperanza Spalding (with Wayne Shorter, saxophone), Rickie Lee Jones (with Chris Potter, saxophone), Ledisi, Susan Tedeschi (with Steve Wilson, saxophone), Shawn Colvin (with Chris Botti, trumpet), Dianne Reeves, and Alison Krauss (with Jerry Douglas, piano).
