Woman of the Other World – 

April 26, 2020 – Nyro, born Laura Nigro, died at age 49 in 1997. By this point in her life she recorded rarely, performed live only now-and-again, and declined to appear on television. She was beloved by other musicians, but was doubtlessly remembered by most as someone who wrote great songs for other people … Her roots were singing doo-wop but she admired avant-garde jazz pioneers like John Coltrane and Miles Davis. (Miles even visited her while she was recording her “New York Tendaberry” album.)
