GRAMMY® winner for Best Latin Jazz Album for Made In Brazil (Concord)

New album Dance of Time (Concord) out now

Recorded in Brazil, the release features Randy Brecker, Mike Mainieri, Mark Kibble, Amilton Godoy, Toquinho and João Bosco

GRAMMY®-winning pianist/singer/songwriter Eliane Elias has sold over two million records over the span of her career and is known for 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. Two years after seducing fans with her GRAMMY®-winning Made in Brazil (Best Latin Jazz Album), Elias returns with the ebullient new release Dance of Time (Concord).  With the presence of extraordinary guests including pianist Amilton Godoy plus singer- songwriting guitarists João Bosco and Toquinho—from Brazil—along with trumpeter Randy Brecker, vibraphonist Mike Mainieri and singer Mark Kibble—from the United States, Dance of Time celebrates certain people who were integral in Elias’ early artistic journey in both Brazil and the U.S. “I wanted to include musicians who were very important in the start of my career,” Elias says. “Dance of Time represents the spectrum of my career from the very beginning until now.”

Recorded in Brazil, Dance of Time also applauds the samba, a genre originating from Bahia, via Africa. Last year marked the 100th anniversary of the first samba ever recorded and registered, “Pelo Telefone.” “Samba is the most authentic and contagious dance rhythm of Brazil, and there is no better place in the world to capture this music. I just had to be in Brazil to make Dance of Time.”

Elias is known for her distinctive and immediately recognizable musical style which blends her Brazilian roots, her sensuous, alluring voice with her impressive instrumental jazz, classical and compositional skills. With 25 albums to date demonstrating her unique gifts as a pianist, singer, composer and arranger as well as melding her immense talents in jazz, pop, classical and Brazilian music, Eliane Elias is as JAZZIZ magazine has called her, “A citizen of the world” and “an artist beyond category.”

“Recorded in her homeland, Dance of Time shows Elias on top form, especially when euphorically racing through local standards. Elias sings and plays with insinuating sensuality. **** ” – The Times

“Elias keyboard work is masterful, and her subtle vocals could melt the coldest of hearts. Her bossa nova and samba material mirrors the songbooks of the Great Brazilian masters.” – DownBeat

“… what distinguishes Elias as one of today’s leading bossa nova interpreters is her superb musicianship, the way she floats above the rhythm and meshes her vocals with her robust jazz piano accompaniment.*****” – Associated Press
