The Three Americas

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Two sides of Eliane Elias are on display on this CD. She is heard as an effective soft-toned singer of bossa nova and particularly on the last few numbers as a strong post-bop jazz pianist. The bossas which often feature guitarist Oscar Castro-Neves and flutist Dave Valentin are enjoyable, if a bit lightweight, and "Chorango" which has Gil Goldstein on accordion and violinist Mark Feldman is a modern tango. But it is as a pianist that Elias is most significant, and fortunately, there are enough instrumentals on this release to make it worth picking up by jazz listeners.
