Description:Japanese labels have always been keen on finding new, emerging talents and introducing them to jazz fans. It is no conincidence, then, that the first two leader albums by acclaimed pianist (and now singer) Eliane Elias were released by Denon (now a part of Colombia Music Japan).

A seriously talented pianist whose main influences are Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett, Elias, around the time of this recording, was playing piano and keyboards with Steps Ahead, a very popular fusion group at that time. She surprised some people by choosing to do her first leader album in a acoustic piano trio setting, playing mostly straight ahead jazz with some Brazillian flavors.

Surrounded by giants such as Stanley Clarke, Eddie Gomez, Al Foster, Steve Gadd and Lenny White (and guest harmonica player Toots Thielemans), Elias shows serious chops, fresh thinking and excellent compositional skills. This is an important debut album by an important artist, long out of print, now reissued as a superior-sounding HQCD. A cause for a celebration!

Recorded Oct. 22-24, 1986, in New York. HQCD is a new CD formulation that utilizes an advanced polycarbonate material and a special alloy for the reflective layer for superior sound. It is compatible with all CD players.

If you like this CD, you'll also like her second leader album, Cross Currents.
