All Music Guide - John Bush
Eliane Elias' second record for Bluebird is, like the previous Kissed by Nature, a vocal date intended for crossover audiences.

Unlike the Gilberto tracks, Elias succeeds on two Antonio Carlos Jobim compositions, "Photograph" and the title song, her voice ironically betraying her in the same seductive fashion that Jobim himself made a hallmark. Her solos, though beautiful and contemplative, are short and usually hug the shore. As an overall musician, Elias has sure instincts when playing or singing, and compensates for her lack of vocal strength by rarely lingering on her notes.

    Fall in Love...

    Dreamer was the first jazz CD I had been exposed to. My experience with this CD is personal as it has touched my soul in a way that makes it a recommended piece for me. There is a sense of calm and safety within it. It can be listened to alone for quite reflection or with someone uniquely special. Moments shared with this piece will never be forgotten.
