Japanese labels have always been keen on finding new, emerging talents and introducing them to jazz fans. It is no conincidence, then, that the first two leader albums by acclaimed pianist (and now singer) Eliane Elias were released by Denon (now a part of Colombia Music Japan).

A seriously talented pianist whose main influences are Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Herbie Hancock and Keith Jarrett, Elias followed up her successful debut album Illusions with Cross Currents. Considering that this was recorded mere six months after the first one, one is struck by how much better and stronger Elias sounds on the piano.

She confidently opens with Bud Powell's "Hallucinations" and shows that she is a truly gifted, bop-oriented pianist. Ably supported and egged on by the superb rhythm section -- Eddie Gomez on bass and Jack DeJohnette on drums, with Peter Erskine taking over on three tunes, Elias nails a tune after another with inspired performance. This is an important early album by an important artist, long out of print, now reissued as a superior-sounding HQCD. A cause for a celebration!

Recorded March 16-21, 1987, in New York. HQCD is a new CD formulation that utilizes an advanced polycarbonate material and a special alloy for the reflective layer for superior sound. It is compatible with all CD players.
