Eliane Elias Sings Jobim (1998)

Album review by G. Sawaged
Anyone who loves Brazilian music, Jobim, jazz and bossa nova, cannot fail but love this album. Eliane’s voice is beautiful and she sings without straining, her voice is but a breath of air, and is so relaxing. Her piano playing is second to none and the other musicians on this album are just as brilliantMichael Brecker, Oscar Castro-Neves, Marc Johnson, Paulo Braga and Cafe.

This is an album that has the ability to transport you to a warm Brazilian beach, even in the midst of a cold Canadian winter. Just put it on, close your eyes, and get ready for the sun!
