Eliane Elias

| Brasilien

“Elias has firmly established herself as a consummate talent whether she is behind the keyboard or in front of the microphone. The artist presented in these twelve tracks is an assured and polished professional who brings a subtle delicacy to this music. Made In Brazil is another glittering gem in Elias' crown as the luminary leader of contemporary bossa nova, samba and Brazilian jazz.”
All About Jazz

Pressestimmen zum Album "Made in Brazil" (2015):

“…with its spectrum of top-flight Brazilian musicians young and old, the album embraces three generations of craftsmanship. And what a warm embrace it is. The orchestral arrangements, recorded at Abbey Road with the London Symphonic Orchestra and featured on seven tracks, are as dense and lush as the Amazon. The remaining tracks, though less dramatically verdant, are utterly luxurious.”
JazzTimes

“While Elias has also been known for her recordings of Brazilian music, Made in Brazil, which comes out Tuesday (March 31), is the first album that she produced in Brazil since moving to the United States three decades ago. Sensual and breezy, the set – which includes classics ‘Waters of March’ and ‘Aquarela do Brasil,’ as well as six of her own compositions – transmits Elias’ delight at recording in her homeland with local musicians.”
Billboard

“Elias just released Made in Brazil on Concord Records that visits her Brazilian roots in a new way. She has weaved Brazilian music into many albums, and even done entire projects covering it. But her new recording looks at some of the songs in a different light, adding orchestrations, lush background vocals, and contemporary arrangements, all as a salute to her homeland. It's another outstanding creation, music she will be taking around the world in 2015.”
All About Jazz

Pressestimmen zum Album "I thought about you":

„Äußerst elegant bewegt sich die Frau, die ein bisschen aussieht wie die (junge) Brigitte Bardot, durch das musikalische Terrain zwischen Jazz, Bossa nova und Blues. Und zeigt en passant, dass sie eine Künstlerin ist, die sich in keine Stil-Schublade stecken lässt.“
Badische Neueste Nachrichten

„in 14 vormals von Baker veredelten Songs kriegt sie das Kunststück fertig, dem Vorbild nah und doch ganz und gar sie selbst zu sein. Erstklassig.“
Morgenpost Sachsen

"This is not one concert but two offered by the fabulous Eliane Elias , singer and pianist of great talent. A memorable evening . Editor's Note : ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ For Brazilian Eliane Elias (! Whose very name contains beautiful alliteration ) , the Oceanographic Institute ( for scientists) or Oceans House ( for poets ) was a case all indicated : from Brazil , land of sun and bossa nova ( and football, but tonight it did not matter ... ) , blond Eliane in a sculptural black dress , gloved as Gilda , looked like a Siren. And mesmerizing , irresistible, it was indeed : beautiful , of course, the blonde vamp essentially overwhelmed us with her wonderfully modulated voice . Jazzy , warm, extremely clear and precise to unwind with happiness classics of the repertoire. This first concert , exceptional, was marked by the presence of Rick Margitza amazing saxophonist who played with Miles Davis. Standing ovations , the singer and pianist came back an hour later for the second concert, just as catchy. Between the two concerts, Eliane Elias accidentally sprained her ankle, but no way to cancel ! Brave , smiling , supported by musicians, Eliane Elias assured with class and infinite kindness the entire program . The show must go on . The jazzy pace of the first part has mellowed into a gentle and enchanting diving in the Portuguese language ( including compositions of Carlos Jobim and Joao Gilberto ) . " Are there any Portuguese in the room? "Asked Eliane Elias . Sensual , enveloping music and magic , we were literally transported beyond the ocean to Brazil. A very big thank you to Eliane Elias and her band (Graham Dechter on guitar, Marc Johnson on bass and hyper talented Rafael Barata on drums) !

“A Brazilian pianist with a transparent touch and a fondness for subtle harmonic shading, Ms. Elias is also a singer of breathy composure, as she demonstrates on her new album, I Thought About You: A Tribute to Chet Baker (Concord Jazz).”
The New York Times

“On her new album, I Thought About You: A Tribute to Chet Baker, the pianist and singer skillfully refashions the signature songs of the classic cool-jazz trumpeter and vocalist into Brazilian-style anthems.”
The New Yorker

“Its release timed to coincide with the 25th anniversary of Chet Baker’s death, Eliane Elias’ I Thought About You is the most satisfying of the many Baker tributes that have surfaced of late, because the Brazilian pianist and vocalist so keenly appreciates a key shared attribute. Like the perennially misunderstood Baker, wrongfully pegged as a tragedian, Elias is first and foremost a sensualist.”
JazzTimes

“With I Thought About You, Elias acknowledges Baker and Brazilian jazz at the same time—and the results are consistently engaging.”
Jazz Inside Magazine

“…Elias sings her Baker straight and uncomplicated, highlighting Baker’s own emotionally frozen though thoroughly attractive delivery. The result captures Baker’s dark and hiply sardonic singing personality. What Elias brings to the table is the breezy lilt of a Brazilian accent that increases the disc’s sensuality to eleven on a scale of ten.” All About Jazz

“Featuring a selection of standards strongly associated with Baker, Elias mixes her native Brazilian bossa nova with swing, straight-ahead jazz, and even a few bluesy flourishes with much aplomb…Elias, who has also leaned toward playing melodic, often romantic music, is a perfect conduit for reinterpreting Baker’s music.”
All Music

“Brazilian-born pianist, composer, and vocalist Eliane Elias is paying tribute to an American trumpet icon on a new album due for release on May 28…Elias brings to the concept her distinctive style — both vocally and at the piano — which blends traditional Brazilian music, bossa nova, and straight-ahead jazz. The 14-track album, I Thought About You: A Tribute to Chet Baker, features a group of acclaimed musicians, including her husband bassist Marc Johnson, trumpeter Randy Brecker, guitarists Steve Cardenas and Oscar Castro-Neves, drummer Victor Lewis, and percussionist Marivaldo Dos Santos.”
Voice of America

“Ms. Elias’ sensual vocals sustain the album, but Mr. Brecker’s virtuosity offers perspectives that not only complement her voice but do Baker justice. The sum total not only honors Chet Baker’s enduring genius, but places it solidly in the here and now.” ****
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“There is much to like about this release, not the least of which is the fact that Elias is a singer of self-possession and focus…[Baker] left a full yet incomplete jazz legacy. Eliane Elias breathes new life into an inspired sampling of his work.”
Audiophile Audition

“Elaine Elias continues to give her best in her music and her desire to give her audiences this best is what keeps her creating and living inspired. Her sound is very personal, an offering of herself – an offering that continues to reach us deep within, just as she felt when she began this journey.”
iRockJazz

“While Elias came to prominence with her Brazilian flair, as an interpreter of American standards one would be hard pressed to find an artist as stylish, elegant and sophisticated as Elias. Oh yeah...being a piano virtuoso does not hurt.” *****  @CriticalJazz

“I Thought About You is an album of classic jazz standards and material. The arrangements and production on this CD are top notch, and get high marks for taste and quality of the performances. Eliane Elias sizzles on every track, and there’s no doubt that listeners will think about her and the CD long after the last track has played.”
The Entertainment Bank

“Taken separately, it’s easy to think the elements here wouldn’t work, but when put together this elegantly, the sum of the parts become grandly greater than the whole. A real left field winner that's sure to raise eyebrows as Elias breaks new ground in a most unexpected way.”
