The music of Eliane Elias is deeply harmonic and sensual. At its heart is utterly superb jazz piano - rhythmic, gently propulsive and essentially (though not overtly) Brazilian. Elias infuses her sonorous, vibrant playing with some pleasingly melodic, whispery-delicate vocals - always pitch-perfectly complementing her sumptuous piano verve.

'Bossa Nova Stories' combines loving interpretations of Brazilian jazz classics with some popular American standards, all quality-assured by the formidable rhythm section of top-level bassist Marc Johnson (her husband) and percussionist Paulo Braga. About half the tracks are enriched by subtle orchestral arrangements conducted by Rob Mathes - reminiscent to me of those that embellish Diana Krall's 'The Look of Love'.

'Bossa Nova Stories' is essential listening to all who like, or certainly who love, Brazilian jazz. Track no 6, 'Estate (Summer'), can only be described as sublime - one of the most exquisite of jazz-samba melodies taken assuredly by Elias to a new level with the help of Toot Thieleman's passionate, playful harmonica. Further album standouts include 'Girl from Ipanema', 'Desafinado', 'Superwoman' and 'Rã (The Frog)'.

The album may not be as accomplished in jazz terms as the powerful 'Paulistana' or as innovative as the highly recommended 'Kissed by Nature', which comprises some wonderful Elias originals. Yet as an uplifting virtuoso homage to Brazilian jazz, 'Bossa Nova Stories' is a wise investment in complete musical enjoyment.

I am a dedicated Eliane fan, she can play the piano much better than any other woman jazz pianist today, her lines are propulsive, her improv is modern and innovative and her versions of the classic brasilian tunes are sometimes brilliant and refreshing, but I have to admit the quality standard of her first albums is much better than the last ones in pretty much every respect. I have seen her live this year and I klnow she can still cut it, the concert with Marc Johnson and a basilian drummer was supperb. Just a matter of keeping it up mostly for the sake of the music instead of just doing it for the money, I guess. I still bought the album.

I bought this as a gift for my husband and he loved it..and so did I! i strongly recommend it.It's a bit Gilberto-ish and every bit as good as previous reviewers say it is.

Came across Eliane by accident. Fantastic and, to my mind, totally out-shines Ms. Krall. Was flying back from Cyprus and the guy (a total stranger) next to me totally agreed. Now bought several more of her albums. Exciting. Buy them.

This Album starts so well and continues to be a pleasure to listen to until the last two or three tracks when it becomes very bland and a little TOO Jazzy for me and lacking in Melody. But if you're are an out and out Fan of Modern Jazz, then will probably love it.
