"Elias’ intoxicating vocals emote the ambient calm of a forest after a soft rain; her vibrancy is a force unto itself. With powerful artistry, her naturally prodigious talent is even stronger as the years pass—a feat capable only by the true elites of the musical world." *****
"... what distinguishes Elias as one of today's leading bossa nova interpreters is her superb musicianship, the way she floats above the rhythm and meshes her vocals with her robust jazz piano accompaniment.*****"
"Elias' strength's as a jazz artist, combined with her roots in São Paulo, make her one of the most impressive interpreters of jazz-linked bossa novas, sambas and choros..."
LOS ANGELES TIMES
"The Brazilian pianist and singer Eliane Elias commands the keyboard with a forceful two-handed muscularity that belies her image as a blond older sister of the mythical Girl From Ipanema. The more percussive her pianism becomes, the more she opens up a song and reimagines it in what might be called a romantic carnival groove…….a celebration of the vitality of a culture overflowing with life and natural beauty"
The new album from Eliane Elias is out now and has already landed at the #1 spot on the iTunes Jazz Charts in many countries around the world including the United States, Japan, Germany, France and more!
