MIDDLETOWN - Eliane Elias will perform on the stage of Orange Hall Theatre on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 8pm.
Described by David Becker, writer for the Bay Area Jazz Examiner, as "one of Brazil’s most gifted contemporary jazz musicians: one of those rare polymaths, equally talented as a pianist, vocalist, and arranger," Eliane Elias will be accompanied by her husband Marc Johnson on bass and Mauricio Zottarelli on drums.
This concert, which is the third and last in the Women in Jazz series at SUNY Orange, will surely heat up the cold winter’s night. Orange Hall is located at the corner of Wawayanda and Grandview Avenues, Middletown, NY.
Ms. Elias is a vivacious, engaging entertainer with a sensuous, sultry voice who sings in both Portuguese and English. She not only has a deep-rooted feel for the rhythms of her native land and her hometown Sao Paulo, but also is fluent in the American jazz idiom. Eliane Elias is considered one of the great interpreters of Antonio Carlos Jobim’s bossa nova style music with her lush romantic vocals lending beautifully to the tunes.
JazzReview.com states "Her piano stylings coupled with her unique voice continue to dazzle and hypnotize!" She is truly a "citizen of the world" as described by Jazziz magazine as she has received many nominations for Grammys and Premio da Musica Brasileira and a Gold Disc Award in Japan, as well as notably high ratings from National Public Radio, the French Jazz Charts, Billboard’s Jazz Charts, iTunes and Amazon’s Jazz Charts in the USA.
Tickets will be on sale at the Orange Hall box office starting at 7pm the evening of the performance, plus online anytime at www.sunyorange.edu/arts_comm/ticketing.shtml.
