FEATURING:
Elin, vocals
other musicians, TBA

"Zeal, ambition and musical ESP fire Elin's 'Lazy Afternoon'...a debut that has all the wonder of a magical discovery...like a Frank Sinatra devotee, she controls the song's tempo and demeanor through her lush phrasing and luxurious delivery, each word flowing like liquid chocolate." –Down Beat Magazine

"Brazilian jazz celebrates that which is radiant and joyous and moving and in this regard, Elin more than matches the material she sings." –All About Jazz

"Elin proves a skillful improviser, a clever manipulator of melody and a confident bandleader...this European with Brazil in her blood has thoroughly carried out her dream." –AllMusic.com

Brand new rising star, Elin (pronounced EE-a-leen), has reached astonishing heights on the NYC music scene by now twice selling out Jazz at Lincoln Center—Dizzy's Club Coca-Cola, and performing regularly at other prestigious venues such as the Blue Note, Joe's Pub, Sweet Rhythm, Smoke, The Kitano, and Zinc Bar, since the release of her debut, Lazy Afternoon, in 2006. Her star is also on the rise in other major cities, such as Miami, where she performed regularly at the Arturo Sandoval Jazz Club and where she shared the stage with Chaka Khan, George Benson, Nancy Wilson, Stanley Clarke, George Duke and Wyclef Jean at this year's Jazz in the Gardens festival. Immediately after, she flew to South America for the Peru International Jazz Festival, and in January she headlined the Nordic Jazz Series in the Canary Islands at the magnificent Auditorio de Tenerife.

Born and raised in Sweden by Peruvian and Irish parents—and fluent in five languages—Elin is the embodiment of multiculturalism. Her debut album, Lazy Afternoon, released in 2006 to rave reviews by jazz radio and critics alike, is a genre-bending mix of American & Brazilian standards combined with fresh new originals. On the US JazzWeek charts, where it spent 22+ weeks, it debuted as the #1 most added album on the World Music Chart then peaked at #6. On the Traditional Jazz Chart, it debuted as the 6th Most Added CD, and on the College Jazz Chart it peaked at #4. Performing in seven languages, she's a polished jazz vocalist with a pop sensibility who showcases an ardent vocal style and an uncanny ear for melody.

With a mix of 70's influenced Brazilian & jazz classics, added to a bunch of top NYC musicians and singers who will be guests during the night, her Late Night at the Blue Note promises to be nothing short of magical.
