ABOUT THE SHOW
Hot off her 2022 GRAMMYÂ® win for Best Latin Jazz Album for Mirror Mirror, (also recently nominated for a Latin GRAMMYÂ®) internationally acclaimed recording artist, pianist, singer, composer and arranger Eliane Elias' distinctive musical style and artistry is one of the most celebrated and recognizable sounds in jazz and Brazilian music. She blends her Brazilian roots and alluring voice with her virtuosic instrumental jazz, her classical and compositional skills, while she consistently displays her pianistic mastery and ability to integrate the many artistic roles she takes on.
On her new album, Quietude on Candid Records, Eliane, considered the reigning queen of bossa nova transports us into another world with a lusciously relaxing journey returning to the music of her Brazilian roots. A showcase of her sensuous Portuguese vocals, the piano takes a lower profile with her intoxicating, intimate singing prevailing often with acoustic guitar support. The vocalist-guitarist duo brings the authentic tradition, but in a very personal and expressive way through Eliane's harmonic approach as revealed in these arrangements. "I like to make music that I personally would like to hear. This album makes me feel good, at peace and relaxed and I hope that listeners feel the same," she says.
