Eliane Elias 'Love Stories'
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
Birdland welcomes Eliane Elias back to the stage! She will be here September 17th to September 21st with sets at 8:30 and 11pm! Over the course of a distinguished career spanning nearly 30 albums, multi-GRAMMY®-winning pianist/singer/composer Eliane Elias' distinctive musical style has emerged as one of the most unique and immediately recognizable sounds in jazz. With over 2.2 million albums sold to date, Elias blends her Brazilian roots and alluring voice with her virtuosic instrumental jazz, classical and compositional skills, while she consistently displays her pianistic mastery and ability to integrate the many artistic roles she takes on. Elias' most recent recording, Love Stories, is an orchestral, all-English album to be released on August 30, 2019 via Concord Jazz. "I am very proud of this production and feel it's one of the most romantic sets of music I've ever produced," she says of the project, which she recorded in Brazil and at London's Abbey Road Studios alongside co-producers Marc Johnson and Steve Rodby. She brings a stellar lineup of some of Brazil's most sought-after rhythm section players, including Marcus Texiera on guitar and Edu Ribeiro, Rafael Barata, Paulo Braga and Celso Almeida on drums, plus Marc Johnson, her longtime musical partner and co-lyricist, on bass. Orchestrator Rob Mathes returns for his fourth recording with Elias here, while composer Roberto Menescal plays guitar on his own song, "O Barquinho/ Little Boat." The São Paulo native tapped into a deep well of emotion for this project, which delves into various expressions of love that run the gamut from romantic and dreamy to profound and abiding. Elias' strong connection to the bossa nova tradition features prominently here, as well, shining through in fresh, modern ways as she interprets several classic works made famous by the likes of Frank Sinatra, Antonio Carlos Jobim plus some of her all-time favorites. Elias also mines her own heart for inspiration on three stunning new original compositions. The music's evocative nature reflects an emotionally challenging recent period in Elias' life during which she wrote and arranged the material. Just four months before the death of her father, she suffered an accident, in which she fractured her shoulder, forcing her to remain almost completely still for many weeks. As she recuperated at home in São Paulo, Elias summoned her creative spirit in response to her challenging circumstances where her writing and her voice became, as Johnson put it, "her focal points for expression."
