She could be an essence between Coltrane and Bill Evans in her solo, but she is more again, she is a voice.She has no border between the keys and octaves. She has no fears to deal with harmonies. She is honest, powerful, and she can intrigue by this force, this passion, this truth in her interpretations, and her solo. Nothing can stop it ! She is AMAZING : she is ELENE DEE.
ELENE DEE IN CONCERT
Martial SOLAL pianist
One night, at 8pm, listening to France Musique Paris, I was surprised to hear an extraordinary voice with a sound and a tessitura which evolved out of the ordinary in an unexpected directory. I waited for the end of the show for me to get this disc that gave me so much pleasure. A few moments later, he announced :

Extract of - YVAN AMAR - France Musique. Paris
Elene DEE sings with her whole body. Her deep and powerful voice roars, growls, murmurs and files. You can almost hear it breathe, feel its flesh, and hear its beating pulse. It has shape and substance, which changes incess antly depending on the song, the lyrics or the feeling …The very first note is testimony to this living force – someone is there, a living being that sings – it’s just more than just a voice in a microphone.
Elene DEE sings with her head. Each of her unhurried lyrics is imbued with the world of Pat METHENY ... Elene DEE sings with her heart !A musician amongst musicians ... She recites a thousand stories and whispers a thousand truths.
