Side A of
the album opens with the 1967 song, Você e Eu (You and I), written by
Carlos Lyra (born in 1933) and Vinicius de Moraes (1913-1980). Eliane Elias'
vocals complemented by her piano arrangement make this a stunner right out of
the box. Sung in Portuguese, this song will have you booking a trip to Brazil
to experience the beauty of the country. Long, crystalline piano instrumentals
on this song showcase her piano mastery. Lula Galvâo plays guitar on this one,
and Paulo Braga layers in drums and percussion.
that up with the 1947 song Marina, written by Dorival Caymmi (1914-2008).
Eliane slows the pace on this gorgeous ballad that opens with an intro by
Marcus Teixeira on guitar, Marc Johnson on bass, and Celso de Almeida on drums.
Next on the
playlist is Bahia Com H (Bahia with H), also from 1947, a
beautiful ballad written by Denis Brean (1917-1969). Marcus Texeira joins
Eliane on this one.
Carlos Jobim (1927-1994) was a prolific and legendary composer, and Só Tinha
Que Ser Com Você (This Love That I've Found) written by Jobim and
Aloysio de Oliveira (1914-1995) is a brilliant legacy of his talent. This song
picks up the pace with its bossa nova rhythms and sharply elegant fast-paced
piano work. Marcus Teixeira, Marc Johnson, Celso de Almeida, and Paulo de Braga
also play on this song.
closes Side A of the album the hauntingly beautiful, and slow ballad, the 1975
song, Olha (Look) written by Roberto Carlos and Erasmo Carlos,
which features Eliane's vocals and Lula Galvâo's guitar.
Side B of
the album features 6 more great songs and opens with Bahia Medley - Saudade
da Bahia/Você Já Foi á Bahia (You've Already Been to Bahia) written
by Dorival Caymmi. Lula Galvâo and Paulo Braga provide the instrumentals to
complement Eliane's stunning vocals.
dancing shoes on for the next song, E Samba Mesmo (I Really Samba)
written in 1946 by Janet de Almeida. Marcus Teixeira layers in piano with
Eliane's sparkling piano work. Bolinha de Papel (Little Paper Ball), is
a lively and fast paced song that inspires dancing, so be ready to party.
Eliane keeps the mood going as she slides into Tim-Tim-Por Tim-Tim, sparkles
with crisp bossa nova rhythms.
arranges and covers another Antonio Carlos Jobim and Vinicius de Moraes song, Brigas
Nunca Mais (No More Fighting), from 1959. Coming into the home stretch of
the album, she slows the pace to let the listener catch their collective breath
on this one.
Side B of
the album closes with the slow and lovely, Saveiros written by Dori
Caymmi (son of Dorival Caymmi) and Nelson Motta, with Eliane on the piano and Lula
Galvâo on guitar and vocals, and that is more than enough. From start to
finish, Eliane Elias has produced another masterfully crafted album with Quietude
