Steps Ahead – Holding Together
Record LabelNYC Music
Eliane’s first joined the group Steps Ahead when she came to the US in the early ’80′s. She recorded one album with the group and then began her solo recording career. In 1999 she joined the group for a reunion tour with some of the original members. Holding Together, a new 2 CD set of live performances from the 1999 European summer tour was just released and has received great reviews. The line up is terrific! Eliane joins Bob Berg, Saxophone; Marc Johnson, Bass; Peter Erskine, Drums and the bandleader Mike Mainieri, Vibes. Needless to say, the music is great. The CD features two of Eliane’s original compositions, “The Time Is Now’ and “Bowing to Bud,” as well as some jazz standards and a few gems out of the Steps songbook i.e. Pools, Uncle Bob and Young And Fine. A must for Steps fans!
