Singer/Pianist Eliane Elias to Release New Album “Mirror Mirror” with Chick Corea And Chucho Vald’es on Sept. 10th, 2021

Multi GRAMMY(R) winning pianist/singer/composer Eliane Elias’ latest album MIRROR MIRROR on Candid Records is a lifelong musical dream come true-an extraordinary piano duet recording of Eliane with the late legendary jazz great Chick Corea, and famed Cuban pianist Chucho Vald’es. While her highly successful recordings have predominantly featured her alluring voice and piano mastery, the piano has always been her first love and working with these two incredible icons was a rare opportunity to record in a two-piano setting, something she hasn’t done in many years.

Since moving to the United States in 1981, it was only in 2015 with Made in Brazil and again in 2017 with Dance of Time that Eliane Elias returned to her native Brazil to record the two albums. The São Paulo singer-pianist-composer’s strength lies in transporting the listener to the seductive atmospheres of Brazil, even when the repertoire is rather well-known… very well-known in fact. With this aptly named Love Stories, Elias showcases her skills not only as a brilliant jazz pianist and sensual singer but also as an arranger, composer and producer! Sung almost entirely in English, this 2019 vintage blends three original pieces with seven covers of hits from the golden age of bossa nova and the sixties, popularized by the likes of Antonio Carlos Jobim or Frank Sinatra. Despite this, Love Stories is not an excessively nostalgic record. This collection of love songs exhibits the timeless grace of songs from the 20th century by Jobim with the great arranger Claus Ogerman. And with the very popular (maybe too popular?) compositions, such as the theme from Francis Lai’s film Un homme et une femme, Eliane Elias once again succeeds in fascinating us. Subtlety, vulnerability, finesse, refinement and grace: the Paulista demonstrates why these words are so often attached to her name.

Music From Man of La Mancha is a 1964 musical with a book by Dale Wasserman, lyrics by Joe Darion, and music by Mitch Leigh. It is adapted from Wasserman’s non-musical 1959 teleplay I, Don Quixote, which was in turn inspired by Miguel de Cervantes and his 17th-century masterpiece Don Quixote.

The original 1965 Broadway production ran for 2,328 performances and won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical. The musical has been revived four times on Broadway, becoming one of the most enduring works of musical theatre. The principal song, “The Impossible Dream”, became a standard.

Eliane previously recorded these tracks at the request of the original composer, Mitch Leigh, Guest artists are talented and GRAMMY Award-winning jazz artists Marc Johnson (bass), Satoshi Takeshi (drums), Manolo Badrena (percussion), Eddie Gomez (bass), Jack DeJohnette (drums).

“Pianist Eliane Elias follows her Latin Grammy win for 2017’s magnificent Dance of Time with this set of tunes from the iconic musical Man of La Mancha. During the mid-’90s, Elias was approached by Mitch Leigh, the Tony-winning composer of her musical; he’d followed her career and greatly admired her work. Accompanied by Neil Warner, arranger for the original musical, he commissioned the pianist to rearrange songs from the show. Elias was given complete freedom to choose which songs she wished to record. She hired two rhythm sections: One featured drummer Jack DeJohnette and bassist Eddie Gomez; the other bassist Marc Johnson, drummer Satoshi Takeishi, and master percussionist Manolo Badrena (who plays with both groups). Elias and her sidemen recorded nine songs live in studio. Unfortunately, the completed album was shelved due to contractual issues and seemed doomed to obscurity. Leigh passed in 2014 and never saw its release. Concord rescued the album and added it to their catalog some 23 years after recording.

Two years after seducing fans with her GRAMMY-winning Made in Brazil (Best Latin Jazz Album), Eliane was back in the studios in New York and her native Brazil to work on Dance of Time. Eliane’s style of samba owes a great deal to choro, a slower, jazz and tango influenced style of samba that emerged in the 1930s. It extended range of instruments and beyond the traditional percussion, guitar, and cavaquinho (a miniature guitar with a sound like a picked banjo) to take in the piano, flugelhorn, and trumpet.
