Elaine Elias: Made in Brazil
After moving to New York City for almost 35 years, the multi-talented pianist/vocalist, Elaine Elias, returns to her homeland to craft a collection of sultry, sophisticated, swaying records all Made in Brazil. Singing from English to Portuguese and blending samba rhythm with lush strings, Elias and her superb collaborators present the ultimate bossa-nova sensation. Whether reinterpreting classic ballads from Antonio Carlos Jobim and Ary Barroso or delivering her originals, Elias mastered the art of refined understatement and impeccable relaxation. This album is made to experience from start to finish, and preferably with a Caipirinha.
