Eliane Elias – Around The City Outubro 10, 2006

Posted by Vasco in Música.


On “Around The City”, pianist Elias assigns the keys a back seat in support of her alluring, sensuous vocals sung in English and Portuguese. The Brazil-born, New York-based Elias has played the singer card before in her 18-album career, but nothing like this outing, where she delivers a spellbinding meld of pop, Brazillian and Latin music with a jazz sensibility. Her pianistic excursions arrive sporadically and deeper into the 13-song collection, including a fine run in “A Vizinha Do Lado”. But upfront is where “Around The City” enraptures, beginning with the spirited original “Running”, and continuing with a bossa-steeped take on Tito Puente’s “Oye Como Va” and later a sultry swing through Beck’s “Tropicalia”. Standout track: Elias’ jazzy spin on Bob Marley’s “Jammin’” with loops, trumpet ornamentation and a piano sprint, all girded to earth with speedy grooves by two drummers.
