I came across Eliane Elias because she was playing at the Stanford Jazz Festival and I had never heard of her. I am kicking myself for not going to see her. Virtually, every album she has made had won awards and she has played with many of the jazz greats. She has a CD which is duets with Herbie Hancock. She is Brazillian and has many albums doing Bossa Nova. She has a wonderful voice. She was teaching jazz piano by the time she was 15 and touring by 17. She moved to the US and went to Juliard so besides her natural gifts she is highly trained in composition. She has one CD where she plays only classical.
