Album Review

Pianist and vocalist Eliane Elias pays tribute to legendary jazz trumpeter/vocalist Chet Baker on her 2013 album I Thought About You. 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. The album, produced by Elias' husband, bassist Marc Johnson, also features guitarists Steve Cardenas and Oscar Castro-Neves, drummers Victor Lewis and Rafael Barata, and percussionist Marivaldo Dos Santos. Also adding more than a few moments of deft and thoughtful improvisation is trumpeter Randy Brecker.

As Baker grew up listening to the music of the '30s and '40s, many of his own choices for songs to play were informed by the great songbook of those decades. Baker also had a natural inclination toward a pretty melody and romantic lyric and he never failed to pick great songs to perform. Subsequently, Baker's recordings showcase a superb batch of tunes to choose from. Elias, who has also leaned toward playing melodic, often romantic music, is a perfect conduit for reinterpreting Baker. Here she plays such songs as "There Will Never Be Another You," "Let's Get Lost," "Just Friends," "Embraceable You," and "I Get Along Without You Very Well."

Symbiosis Jazz Royalty

I love this CD I thought about you is not only Elaine Elias' greatest CD yet but it may be the GREATEST JAZZ ALBUM ever or at least of the 21st & 22nd Century!!! This CD is a game changer as it elevates Elaine Elias to the top of a very short list of Great Jazz Pianists that also are Great Jazz Vocalists. Before I thought about you the list for me was Nat King Cole & Diana Krall. Now Elaine Elias is so far above them on that list it may never see another #1 ever. Elaine's Vocals are Great on this CD but the symbiosis of phenomenal Jazz Piano and sultry, fun, timeless VOCALS are what sets this album apart as the GREATEST CD ever produced.
Elaine keep doing your thing and give us more. Anyone who says they love Jazz should have this CD in their music Collection. It will give you years and decades of pleasure for your EARS & your SOUL

A Classic Jazz Artist that is consistent and timeless.

Great but missing an important song

I love this album. Miss Elias is fantastic, but I am greatly saddened that one of Chet Baker's most iconic songs wasn't featured here, the song I'm referring to is "My Ideal", which is one of Baker's most recognizable standards! But besides that the album is quite wonderful.
