London Evening Standard calls Eliane ‘Legend of the Bossa Queen’ and gives her a 4 star review

Eliane Elias, review: Legend of the bossa queen

Elias proved she’s an artist at her peak, says Jane Cornwell 4/21/17

Spectacular playing:  She’s told it before but she’ll tell it again: Eliane Elias was just 17, leading her trio at a gig in Sao Paolo, when she spotted Joao Gilberto and Vinicius de Moraes, the creators of bossa nova, seated down the front.

“As close as you are now,” said the New York-based virtuoso,

The London Times give Eliane’s live performance 4 stars!

The Brazilian singer-pianist Eliane Elias must occasionally glance at the tour schedule of Diana Krall (two nights at the Albert Hall) and wonder why her star hasn’t risen quite so high. They are two glamorous women playing jazz with a breezy hipness. Elias’s voice is characterful if small compared with Krall’s, but as an improvising pianist she puts the Canadian in the shade.

Still, six sold-out shows at Ronnie Scott’s is no small achievement and Elias arrived trailing accolades for her new album,

The Guardian gives ‘Dance of Time’ 4 stars

Eliane Elias: Dance of Time review – sultry vocals, scintillating piano

Spontaneity … the Brazilian singer and pianist Eliane Elias

As a vocalist, the Brazilian Eliane Elias radiates as much starry smooth-jazzy hipness as Diana Krall, but as an improvising pianist she’s in a different league: a wellspring of polished bebop lines and skittish flourishes. Jazz hardliners might shy away from the purr of her sultry vocal sound,

LOS ANGELES – There are two kinds of samba. There is the rough, rootsy street music of early samba greats like Cartola, from samba’s golden age between the 1920s and the 1950s, and there is the softer, lyrical and more musically complex style developed since and is constantly revolving. The undisputed master of the latter is the legendary GRAMMY-winning pianist, singer, composer and arranger Eliane Elias, whose upcoming March 24, 2017 Concord Jazz label CD called Dance of Time,
