Rose Theater

Eliane Elias: From Bill Evans to Brazil

Brazil-born, New York City-based pianist, singer, and composer Eliane Elias is renowned equally for her mastery of straight-ahead jazz, Brazilian music, and the many fusions in between. In this unique Rose Theater concert, audiences will experience two sides of her artistry across two distinct sets. One half of the performance will be dedicated to the iconic Bill Evans Trio, with a band featuring both members of Evans’ final trio: drummer Joe LaBarbera and Elias’ husband, bassist Marc Johnson. Elias’ Bill Evans repertoire is particularly special for its inclusion of two unpublished Evans compositions, personally given to Johnson before Evans’ passing. The other half of the show is described as a “Brazilian Journey” that will take us through several generations of alluring Brazilian compositions — including songs from Elias’ Made in Brazil, winner of the 2016 Best Latin Jazz Album Grammy Award. In addition to bassist Marc Johnson, the band includes two of Brazil’s finest modern musicians: drummer Rafael Barata and guitarist Rubens de La Corte. Few artists possess such authority and authenticity across genres, and this Eliane Elias showcase will be a remarkable cross-cultural experience.
