In fact, I remember my late friend, KJAZ DJ Jerry Dean just loved Eliane and her music and would always find a way to play one of her tunes on his show. And every time I ran into Jerry, we would talk about Eliane's latest release and what we liked and who played on it and all of that jazz record geek kind of stuff. Eliane's music served as a great bond between us.
Jerry's passion for Eliane's music was a force all its own and I am always reminded of it when I hear her music. I wish he was still around today to hear Eliane's latest album because I know it would have blown him away. It just might be her finest album to date. So in the spirit of the late great Jerry Dean, I present this podcast episode in his honor featuring Eliane discussing her new recording Light My Fire. - JV
