The Christine Spero Group My Spanish Dream  Lush vocal harmonies and daring arrangements of the latest Brazilian/Latin inspired pop/jazz by pianist/singer Christine Spero and her group:Elliot Spero -Saxophones & Percussion  Charlie Kniceley - Bass T Xiques - Drums  Even before Christine Spero began recording with her dynamic quartet, she was earning numerous accolades for her melodic, emotionally powerful and soulful songwriting and was Winner of the USA Songwriting Competition/Jazz category. She was also a finalist with "Caribbean Nights," a festive tropical celebration that typifies the joyful exotica that drives her second recording, My Spanish Dream, a rich Brazilian/Latin/world fusion offering that dances blithely between pop and jazz. The project was produced by Elliot Spero, who does multiple duties on soprano and tenor saxes as well as percussion. Christine's piece, "Therapy" has been published by Wild Whirled Music for use in film and television. The group has opened for such notables as: The Woody Herman Orchestra, Kim Waters, Walter Beasley, Mike Phillips, Ray Vega, Bobby Mattos, Blood, Sweat and Tears, and Melanie. Christine has been written about in USA Today, Billboard, Jazz Times, JAZZIZ, Keyboard and Recording Magazines and ASCAP Playback. My Spanish Dream is being played in over 20 countries.
