Blue Note, 2001, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Latin
O’s Notes: Elaine is featured in fourteen of her own classics recorded from 1988 to 1999. There is always a tropical, Latin, samba feel lurking in the mix complimented by her strong work on piano and vocals. This is typified by one of our favorites, “The Time Is Now”. The roster of accompanying musicians includes Jack DeJohnette (d), Marc Johnson (b), Peter Erskine (d), Dave Valentin (fl) and Christian McBride (b).
