A year on from the release of the fabulous Mirror Mirror new and drawn from Quietude (Candid, 14 October) easy listening bossa nova once again from the great Brazilian singer-pianist on a cover of Jobim and Aloísio de Oliveira's 'Só Tinha Que Ser Com Você' ('This Love That I’ve Found') which following a year on after Jobim's own version sung by Astrud Gilberto on The Astrud Gilberto Album released in 1965 the same year a version Jobim made with an orchestra conducted by Nelson Riddle appeared. The Elias track ain't gonna change the planet. But it's perfectly pleasant. And that peerless pianistic touch of Elias' while very contained in this song is always highly listenable to as is her very soft voice which is less fragile than Gilberto's by a long way. Quietude personnel include guitarists Marcus Teixeira, Lula Galvão and Oscar Castro-Neves (1940-2013), the drummer Celso de Almeida and bassist/co-producer Elias' husband, the great Marc Johnson. Wine bars will be ordering copies of Quietude in bulk and it's still five months to Valentine's. The mood on this track alone is certainly very date night friendly. But if you're not all loved up the track's purring predictability might make you want to walk on by. SG. Eliane Elias, photo: press
