CD Reviews

Brazil Courtesy of Eliane
Shawn Rule | Ann Arbor MI | 03/01/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Eliane delivers a flavorful cornucopia of Brazilian influenced gems. She is by far one of the most rhythmically complex pianists this reviewer has ever encountered in this or any other genre (aside from Art Tatum ). Her playing is soulful, feminine and very Brazilian which is the very thing that makes this work so very sexy. Of particular note are 'Back in Time" which is a gumbo of driving Piano rhythms and chanting that really stirs the spirit and "Vida Continua (life goes on") which is an inspirational piece that is as tender as it is atmospheric. In a word this album is....Magnificent."
Beautiful...... beautiful !!!!!!!!!!!!

"I love this CD.
I have just about all of Eliane's CDs and this one is one of my
favourites; it sounds so fresh, so updated, Eliane is on
it at all times; and that particular way of hers of singing
is absolutely breathtaking, check cuts like: "A Long Story",
"Horizonte" and "Just Kidding", wow..... she leaves us wordless."
Intricate arrangements and killer playing by Erskine & Berg
Papetti | 04/29/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Eliane Elias' CD features intricate Latin-influenced rhythm arrangements. Peter Erskine, Bob Berg, and Andy Narrell play especially well. This is an excellent example of contemporary jazz meeting Latin in a very musical, beautiful style."
