There’s no question about it. Multi GRAMMY® Award winning artist, Eliane Elias, has taken her place in the pantheon of music giants. She has sold over 2.2 million albums during the span of her career. Elias follows up last year’s Latin GRAMMY®-winning Dance of Time with the all-instrumental Music from Man of La Mancha, via Concord Jazz, debuting again at#1 on the Billboard Jazz Chart and iTunes in several countries.
The album features nine individualized interpretations of songs from the legendary 1960s Broadway musical Man of La Mancha. Her 2017 release Dance of Time won a Latin Grammy for Best Latin Jazz Album of the year after receiving two Latin Grammy nominations (Best Latin Jazz album and Best Engineered album categories), and debuting at #1 on two Billboard’s Charts: Traditional Jazz Charts and World Music Albums Charts, and also at #1 on iTunes USA, Germany, France and Brazil and #1 Amazon.com Best Seller. Her previous album, Made In Brazil, won a Grammy Award® for Best Latin Jazz Album of the Year. She now has 9 Grammy Award® nominations to date, is a four time “Gold Disc Award” recipient and three time winner of “Best Vocal Album” in Japan, #1 artist in sales and radio in France, with all recordings reaching top five on USA Billboard Jazz Charts, Jazz radio charts, and several reaching #1 on iTunes and Amazon.com to name a few accolades. And she’s not resting on her laurels. Her newest album, Dance of Time features certain guest artists who were integral in Elias’ early artistic journey in both Brazil and the U.S. and also celebrates 100 years of the Samba. “Samba is the most authentic and contagious dance rhythm of Brazil, and there is no better place in the world to capture this music”, Elias explains about her decision to record again in Brazil. “Dance of Time also represents the spectrum of my career from the very beginning until now.” Elias is known for her distinctive and immediately recognizable musical style which blends her Brazilian roots, her sensuous, alluring voice with her virtuosic instrumental jazz, classical and compositional skills.
With 26 albums to date demonstrating her unique gifts as a pianist, singer, composer, arranger, and producer as well as melding her immense talents in jazz, pop, classical and Brazilian music, Eliane Elias is as Jazziz magazine has called her, “A citizen of the world” and “an artist beyond category.”
