MAP TO THE TREASURE: REIMAGINING LAURA NYRO

GRAMMY Museum

800 W. Olympic Blvd, 800 W. Olympic Blvd, 0

8:00pm

Composer/Arranger/Pianist and GRAMMY-winner Billy Childs and fellow GRAMMY-winning producer Larry Klein have brought together an extraordinary group of artists to celebrate the songs of Laura Nyro on the brand new album, Map To The Treasure: Reimagining Laura Nyro.   The already critically-praised album was released September 9th on Sony Masterworks with The Wall Street Journal calling it ‘a loving and powerful tribute’ and The Daily News calling it ‘a full story in song, fulfilling the album’s title mission – to create a true re-imagining’ . Not in any way a typical ‘tribute album’, Map To The Treasure presents Laura Nyro’s music as a fully-orchestrated, conceptual suite of songs whose lead voices are expertly cast via Childs’ & Klein’s exceptional collaborative musical vision.  That incredible ‘cast’ includes Renee Fleming, Yo-Yo Ma, Esperanza Spalding, Wayne Shorter, Shawn Colvin, Chris Botti, Lisa Fischer, Rickie Lee Jones, Alison Krauss, Ledisi, Dianne Reeves, Becca Stevens & Susan Tedeschi.   On September 30th, Billy Childs and Larry Klein will welcome three of the album’s featured guest vocalists - Shawn Colvin, Rickie Lee Jones and Becca Stevens for an in-depth conversation about their collaboration on this unique project and the inspiration and influence of its incomparable composer, Laura Nyro.  The evening will also include an intimate performance from the artists.

REEL TO REEL: WONDERWALL & WONDERWALL MUSIC

GRAMMY Museum

800 W. Olympic Blvd, 800 W. Olympic Blvd, 0

7:30pm

Since its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 1968, Wonderwall has remained one of the quintessential films of the psychedelic movement. In March 2014, director Joe Massot's psychedelic classic was released on DVD and Blu-ray in a restored Collector's Edition, courtesy of Fabulous Films and Shout! Factory. On September 23, George Harrison's remastered and expanded soundtrack album for the film, Wonderwall Music, will be released by Capitol/UMe, individually and in The Apple Years 1968-75, a new 8-disc and digital collection of Harrison's six Apple solo albums. Wonderwall's kaleidoscope of images set to Harrison's predominantly instrumental soundtrack, an intricate, vibrant tapestry of Western rock music and compositions in an Indian classical style, catapult the audience into a lost world of innocence, where love and laughter reign supreme. Set in swinging 1960s London, Wonderwall is the story of a reclusive professor Oscar Collins (Jack MacGowran), who becomes infatuated with beautiful model Penny Lane (Jane Birkin), the girlfriend of a Svengali-like photographer (Iain Quarrier). To rescue Penny, the professor enters the magical realm of the Wonderwall, and returns to his laboratory a changed man. The Collector's Edition features an all-new print, a high-definition restoration by the Pinewood Studios film restoration team, as well as the re-edited Director's Cut, plus an extensive booklet featuring essays, historical analysis and production history. Dhani Harrison has overseen the restoration and remastering of George Harrison's Apple albums by a GRAMMY® Award-winning team of engineers including Paul Hicks, Gavin Lurssen, and Reuben Cohen. Following the screening, The GRAMMY Museum's executive director Bob Santelli and Emmy-nominated music journalist and TV writer David Wild will discuss the film and George Harrison's music.
