“One of the most enchanting and relaxing albums in quite a while. She sings perfect music for a lazy afternoon out in the sun or romantic dinner.. Treat yourself to an audio island paradise with Eliane Elias and Dreamer!”
“Eliane Elias, blessed with a warm voice and elegant pianist’s touch, hits all the right chords. Elias delivers seductive tones and textures of her native Brazil, joining them with masterful jazz tonalities.”
Eliane Elias. Remember the name, because you’re going to be hearing it a lot. This Sao Paulo–born New York resident, who is keeping lush Brazilian jazz alive in a rainbow of colors in this 50th-year anniversary of bossa nova, just got the new music season off to a dazzling start. The standing ovations in last week’s gig at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola coincided with the release of her new Blue Note CD, Bossa Nova Stories. Anticipate rapture.
