Description

 

Eliane Elias / Time and Again

 

“Time has multiple meanings for me on this album. It refers to the feel and groove of the music which have always been essential features in my music, but also, the tune titles and lyrics refer to aspects of time; past, present and future, as well as the passage of time. There are songs and musicians represented here from the earliest part of my musical journey to the present.”….Eliane Elias
