An early demonstration of Eliane Elias' love of Brazilian music – a wonderful set that's filled with famous tunes penned by Antonio Carlos Jobim – mostly played by Eliane on piano, but also sung in a few spots as well! The group features solid jazz grounding from Eddie Gomez on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums – both players who hint at freedom around the edges, while still flowing through these bossa-rooted tunes. Nana Vasconcelos also joins the group on percussion – in ways that are a bit more restrained than some of his other jazz recordings, but which still helps create an organic depth to the music. Titles include "Children's Games", "Angela", "Passarim", "Sabia", "Waters Of March", "Zingaro", and "Don't Ever Go Away". (BMG Direct pressing.) © 1996-2013, Dusty Groove, Inc.
