Friday 16 September 2022 19.30Ends approximately 21.45
Multi Grammy Award winning Eliane Elias is one of the greatest stars of the jazz scene. Earlier this year she was awarded yet another Grammy, for the album Mirror, Mirror in the Best Latin Jazz Album category. It’s a duet recording in which she performs with other iconic pianists like Chick Corea (1941–2021) and Chucho Valdés. Earlier on she has done similar projects with for instance Herbie Hancock. Both her previous albums were awarded too, with Downbeat’s Best Album of the Year to name one example.
Eliane Elias has Brazilian roots but is based in the US, and she combines Latin American traits with virtuosic jazz and classical piano technique into a unique and highly personal mix. Being a pianist, composer, arranger and singer she is multi-talented, but the piano has always been her first love. As of now, she has recorded some 30 albums and toured worldwide.
We welcome Eliane Elias to Konserthuset Stockholm’s very own big band, Blue House Jazz Orchestra, along with the very well-merited American bass player Marc Johnson. As usual, the band is led by Peter Asplund and Magnus Lindgren.
