    Recorded at Avatar Studios, New York, New York in May & June 1999.
    Pianist Eliane Elias makes a strong effort with the very traditional EVERYTHING I LOVE, which apparently means she has a healthy penchant for straight-ahead swinging. She does so expertly on several tracks, displaying a relaxed, supple feel for several standards and a few craftily penned originals of her own. She is joined by two different trios made up of either Christian McBride and Carl Allen or Marc Johnson and Jack DeJohnette in alternating roles. As a bonus, Elias once again treats us to a sampling of her fine vocals, caressing the melodies of gems like "I Fall in Love too Easily" and "They Say It's Wonderful" with her dusky, Brazilian-tinged lilt. In particular, her playful articulation on the Johnny Burke sizzler, which also features a guest spot by guitarist Rodney Jones, makes for a rousing disc highlight. Other golden cuts include a dancing samba take on Cole Porter's "I Love You" and a very moving rendition of the classic "Autumn Leaves."

  • Critic Reviews
    CMJ (3/6/00, p.35) - "...a blend of the mainstream, the high-quality artistry that is straight-ahead jazz playing...and the spirited, romantic quality that is her hallmark."
    Down Beat (6/00, pp.70-1) - 3 stars out of 5 - "...Straight-ahead material very much in the modern piano trio format....All three musicians support and surround Elias's efforts in fine fashion...'If I Should Ever Lose You'...qualifies as some of the pianist's best recorded work..."
    JazzTimes (5/00, pp.122,124) - "...An unpretentious and flowingly realized song set....She's in good trio company....the continuing maturation of an expressive jazz pianist, stretching out, assuredly and artfully, in trio territory."
