The CD features Eliane on vocals and piano, her arranging, and four original compositions. It also includes covers of familiar works by songwriters as diverse as Jim Morrison and the Doors, pop icon Stevie Wonder and jazz saxophonist Paul Desmond. Backing her is a crew of twelve high-caliber players, including special guests such as guitarist/vocalist Gilberto Gil, bassist Marc Johnson and trumpeter Randy Brecker.

With a highly successful international career, Eliane performs concerts around the world. In her work she has documented dozens of her own compositions. Her outstanding piano playing, arranging, and beautiful vocal interpretations have solidified her place in the pantheon of music giants.
