Eliane Elias

Score: 0

Throughout her distinguished career, having recorded more than twenty-five albums as a leader, the multiple Grammy-winning pianist, singer, and songwriter Eliane Elias has consistently displayed her distinctive and immediately recognizable musical style, which blends her Brazilian roots and sensuous, alluring voice with her virtuosic instrumental jazz, classical, and compositional skills.

On April 13, 2018, Elias follows up last year’s Latin Grammy-winning Dance of Time with the all-instrumental music from Man of La Mancha, via Concord Jazz. The album features nine individualized interpretations of songs composed by the late Mitch Leigh for the legendary 1960s Broadway musical Man of La Mancha.

Elias undertook the project in 1995, and it has remained unreleased until now. The recording features Elias on piano, accompanied by two different all-star trios: one with bassist Eddie Gomez and drummer Jack DeJohnette, while the other with Marc Johnson on bass and Satoshi Takeishi on drums, and both with Manolo Badrena on percussion.
