iTunes Review

Made in Brazil is surprisingly the first album in Eliane Elias’s 30-year solo career made in her homeland. Not surprisingly, the mix of jazz and Brazilian music gracefully shimmies and sways to the country’s rhythms as Elias’s voice skips across the top. She adds a couple of Jobim tunes, lustrous elements of lite R&B (in the form of singers Take 6 and Ed Motta), and rich orchestral arrangements, and she even gets funky on electric piano. Highlights range from two Arry Barroso gems (“Brasil” and “No Tabuleiro da Baiana”) written in the '30s to the lush modern pop originals “Vida (If Not You)” and “Incendiando.”

Customer Reviews

Elaine Elias is made in Brazil

Elaine Elias is coming home with a CD that captures her unique Talents a voice from Heaven. With energy, verve, and a Brazilian jazz flare & the greatest female or male jazz pianist I have ever heard, better than Diana Krall or Nat King Cole. This is a must have for any jazz aficionado. Can't wait to listen for hours & hours to an Angelic jazz gift from G-d.

Eliane Elias / Album Made in Brazil

I found out Eliane Elias at the end of the Eighties, when i was living in New York. She has a beautiful voice and is a very talented piano player. I've collected most of her albuns since then and this last one is very special too !!! 😄😄😄😄

A Clear Takeaway!

OMG, if you have the dozens, or hundreds of "Waters of March" like I have, stand by...you ain't heard anything yet! This ensemble, with the tears fo joy, Take 6, is not only the best ever, but it woudl make Tom Jobim smile big time.
Eliane is one of the few, like Sinatra, or Fitzgereald or Bennett who can re-do a song numerous times and make it a newcommer from the first hearing. As the aformentioned "Waters of March" "No Tabuleiro de Bianco" is no "stranger for her, but oh does this one swing! Not to exlude the "national anthem" of Brazil, "Brazil" is a choker, and also a fit title piece. "Some Enchanted Place" is carioca, sensitive rythm of her antive land. Simply put, can anyone question why this duo of pianist, and bassist will last when one considers hearing your soul mate sing these songs to you?
I wish you happiness, and promise you tears of happiness when you listen to this album for years to come. I am off to the studio, and my paints to express my thanks to this rich collection.
