Harry Allen with JoyceSomething About Jobim ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $9.99 18.99
A lovely little Brazilian-styled set from tenorist Harry Allen – and one that features vocals and guitar from the wonderful Joyce! Almost all titles are originals by Antonio Carlos Jobim – as you'd guess from the title – but Allen's deep-voiced approach moves them into very different territory than the usual bossa remakes – and reminds us just how great Jobim's compositions can be as vehicles for jazz improvisation. In addition to guitar from Joyce, the rest of the quintet features Helio Alves on piano, Rodolfo Stroeter on bass, and Tutty Moreno on drums – who further underscore the Brazilian elements – and Joyce sings on three of the album's eleven tracks, always adding a lot when she does! Titles include "Captain Bacardi", "Chovendo Na Roseira", "Theme For Jobim", "Angela", "Voce Vai Ver", "Tema Jazz", "Mojave", and "Antigua". CD

Joyce CollinsGirl Here Plays Mean Piano (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Jazzland (Japan), 1960. Used ... $26.99
The girl here DOES play mean piano – using her instrument in a way that's surprisingly soulful and filled with lyrical touches! We really don't know Collins much at all – but we've always dug this standout album on Jazzland, part of the label's wave of new discoveries right at the start of the 60s – and the set's got almost an Oscar Peterson Trio sort of vibe, with tunes that hit hard rhythmically one minute, then lay back into more intimate expressions the next. Rhythm here is by the team of Roy Green on bass and Frank Butler on drums – and tracks include versions of "Day In Day Out", "The End Of A Love Affair", "I Let A Song Go Out Of My Heart", "Walkin", and "Ah Moore".

Joyce CoolingCameo ... CD
Nucleus, 1988. Used ... $22.99
A breezy jazz vocal classic from the San Francisco scene of the 80s! Joyce Cooling plays guitar in a mellow jazzy way – a bit influenced by Brazilian fusion, and a bit by the CTI/Kudu styles of the mid 70s – warm and soulful, with a flowing, glowing kind of style that actually even reminds us a bit of Brazilian singer Joyce during the same period. And although Cooling's sounded a bit smooth in recent years, this album's got a nicely indie feel – a stripped-down set of grooves that's held up wonderfully over the years – and which still may be the best thing she ever recorded! Other instrumentation includes keyboards and lots of percussion – and titles include "It's You", "Ve", "The Way Out", "It's On You", and "It's Time I Do". CD

JoycePalavras E Som ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $26.99
The lovely Joyce – sounding lovelier here than we've heard in years – on a special Japanese album that really takes the singer back to her best classic territory! Backing is by a small group, and nicely jazzy – with piano from Helio Alves, and drums from Tutty Moreno – providing gentle accompaniment, but really letting the lady stretch out on her own vocals and acoustic guitar – with those soaring, cascading lines that first made us fall in love with her music way back in the 70s – captured perfectly here with impeccable, understated production. Alves notes on the piano are especially beautiful – ringing out in a way that really offsets the vocals and guitar – on titles that include "Mingus, Miles, & Coltrane", "Humaita", "No Misterio Do Samba", "Sambando No Apocalipse", "Casa Da Flor", "Na 75", "Ave Maria Serena", and "Forrobodo Das Meninas".

✨✧ JoyceFiz Uma Viagem – Songs Of Dorival Caymmi ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Warmly jazzy magic from Joyce – a set that's based around the songs of Dorival Caymmi – which she recorded at the insistence of Nana Caymmi – yet an album that's all completely Joyce's own as well! The setting here is perfect – Joyce on vocals and guitar, with Tutty Moreno on drums and percussion, Rodolfo Stroeter on bass, and the great Helio Alves on piano – no other instrumentation, or any electric touches at all – which has Joyce's contributions soaring out, and sounding completely wonderful – that perfect dance between breezy, scatting vocals and jazzy guitar lines she first created in the 70s – captured here at a level that makes the set one of her most compelling albums in the past few decades! The influence of Caymmi is clear on decades of Brazilian music – but what's also clear is that the man's sense of individuality has inspired so many of his followers to go their own way – which Joyce does here beautifully. Titles include "Vatapa", "Maricotinha", "Acalanto", "Canto De Nana", "Maracangalha", "Fiz Uma Viagem", and "Sabado Em Copacabana". CD

✨✧ Joyce SimsAll About Love ... LP
Sleeping Bag, 1989. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Seminal work from Joyce Sims – one of the last great street soul acts of the New York scene of the 80s! Sims rose to fame right in the years before house and hip hop dominated soul more strongly from the underground up to the mainstream – and her groove here is a bit in the mode of some of the bigger electro soul acts of a few years before – blasting beats and other bits of sound, all put together with a simple, compelling, and highly rhythmic approach overall – a style that's clearly aimed at crossing over to hip hop kids, but which is something different than hip hop altogether. Chep Nunez edit some of the cuts on here, increasing the beats nicely – and titles include "Looking For A Love", "Take Caution With My Heart", "Natural Woman", "Don't Let This Feeling Die", "You Mean The World To Me", and "All About Love".

✨✧ JoyceAnos 80s (Feminina/Agua E Luz/Tardes Cariocas/Saudade Do Futuro/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Out Of Stock
An incredible collection – four albums that feature this amazing singer at her height, along with bonus tracks too! First up is Feminina – one of Joyce's greatest albums – and maybe the first record we'd point to for anyone interested in her music! The set's an incredible blend of vocals, acoustic guitar, and these lightly gentle arrangements – all at this new level of expression that still recognizes Joyce's bossa roots, but really moves beyond with all the sophistication of MPB in the 70s! The sound of the whole thing is wonderful – completely transcendent and mesmerizing right from the start – and Joyce penned most of the tunes and handled the arrangements – with help from Gilson Peranzzetta on a few tracks. Titles include the classic "Feminina", plus "Essa Mulher", "Coracao De Crianca", "Aldeia De Ogum", "Compor", and "Misterios". Next is Agua E Luz – an amazing mix of jazzy vocals, sparkling production, and beautiful light guitar – the younger Joyce at her best – in a wonderfully uncluttered style that makes the record a treasure all the way through! Joyce sings and plays acoustic guitar – and gets these lightly jazzy backings that often feature a bit of electricity, but never too much to dampen the acoustic heart of the record – that great sense of personality that's always made Joyce unlike any other Brazilian artist we can think of – even though so many others have tried to copy her style over the years! Joyce did all the arrangements herself, Sivuca guests on one track – and titles include "Muito Prazer", "Samba De Gago", "Agua E Luz", "Mais Uma Vez, Mais Uma Voiz", "Banho Maria", and "Meio A Meio". Tardes Cariocas is a set recorded during the same key stretch as her early 80s albums for EMI – yet much more obscure! The album's got the same brilliant blend of jazz and bossa phrasing as her classics Agua E Luz and Feminina – and really brings Joyce's beautiful vocals to the forefront, with a strong focus on that fluid, jazzy style we totally love! Acoustic guitar is key to the instrumentation, yet there's also a few electric touches on keyboards – yet used quite softly, so that the presence of Joyce really dominates the record – but with a power that's greater than some of her more solo sets. Wonderful throughout –a nd with cuts that include "Nacional Kid", "Curioso", "Baracumbarra", "Tardes Cariocas", "Luz Do Chao", and "Ela". Saudade Do Futuro is a totally hard to find Joyce album from the mid 80's. Recorded for the obscure Pointer label in Brazil, this set has more of a modern fusion feel than some of her classic recordings that we stock, but Joyce's voice is still sweet and lovely, and her songwriting's as strong as always. The set includes her classic cut "Fa Da Bahia", plus other nice tracks like "Peixe Estrela", "Sonora Garoa", "Quadrantes", "Minha Gata Rita Lee", "Stone Washed, and "Tema Para Jobim", which has a guest performance by Milton Nascimento! Set features 7 bonus tracks – recordings done with Viva Voz, Antonio Adolfo, Mario Adnet, and others – with titles that include "Acalanto", "Terra", "Pega Leve", "Canconeta", "Revendo Amigos", "Diga Ai Companheiro", and "Planeta Azul".

Black Jazz, 1974. Used ... $14.99
The last album in a legendary run of music from keyboardist Doug Carn – his final album for the Black Jazz label, and a set that pushes even farther than his previous efforts! Jean Carn isn't in the group this time around, but the set does feature a totally great twin-vocal approach – with singing by Joyce Green and John Conner, blending their voices together in a style that's right up there with the most righteous 70s jazz experiments by Horace Silver or Billy Gault! This vocal balance really brings a new sort of power to Carn's music – furthering the righteous spirit of earlier years with a hell of a lot of energy – also aided by great instrumental work from Ronnie Laws on tenor and soprano sax, Thurman Green on trombone, Calvin Keys and Nathan Page on guitars, and Big Black on percussion. Titles include the classic "Higher Ground" – plus "Adam's Apple", "Western Sunrise", "Chant", "Sanctuary", "The Messenger", and "Mighty Mighty". CD

Benjamin ClementineI Tell A Fly ... CD
Virgin, 2017. New Copy ... $10.99 11.98
One of the most unique artists we've heard in years – and one who will no doubt be setting the world on fire for years to come! Benjamin Clementine's a singer, but also a poet – inspired by jazz and classical music, yet working here in neither – and instead, finding a path that's completely his own – borne out with incredible creative energy right from the very first note, and continuing through amazing territory with each new song on the set! There's some deft work on piano and electric harpsichord on the record – but there's lots more waves of dark textures and other tones – all to showcase Clementine's vocals, which are unlike any other singer we can think of. Benjamin's hardly just another voice with downtempo rhythms or modern production – as his lyrics are far richer, and his sound here already speaks volumes of his experiences on both the Paris and London scenes – although we're betting he's going to take the whole world by storm soon. Like nothing else you've ever heard – and we mean that in the best way possible – with songs that include "One Awkward Fish", "Farewell Sonata", "Better Sorry Than Asafe", "God Save The Jungle", "Phantom Of Aleppoville", "Paris Cor Blimey", "Jupiter", and "Ode From Joyce".

One of the few singles from Chicago's excellent Faison – a boogie-styled group who certainly deserved greater fame! Lead vocalist Joyce Faison really sparkles on "Who Loves You Better" – putting over the tune with a quality level to match the best club divas on Prelude – and although "Tonite's The Night" is a bit thinner instrumentally, Joyce's vocals are again a factor that really sends the tune! 12-inch, Vinyl record

Aecio Flavio Sexteto/Berimbau Trio/Quinteto SambatExpansao (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Think (Japan), 1965. New Copy ... $26.99
An overlooked set of samba jazz from the 60 – one that features three different groups, each with a very hip approach! The bulk of the album features the Aecio Flavio Sextet – a group that has some wonderful vibes and piano, used in ways that echo some of the best Elenco Records styles of the period – with the beautiful balance between darkness and light, given even more depth through some nicely sophisticated solos on both the vibes and some of the reeds in the group! Quinteto Sambatida have a sound that's warmer, and maybe more flowing – and one one of their tracks they feature vocals from Marcio Jose. The album's rounded out by two tracks from Berimbau Trio – maybe a bit more in the familiar bossa piano trio mode, with some of the Tamba-styled harmonies – and lead vocals from Marilton on one track. Titles include "Cancao Do Sol", "Arrasto", "Nuvens", "Terra De Ninguem", "Joyce's Samba", "Waltema", and "Aleluia" by Aecio Flavio Sextet – plus "Tamba" and "Cheganca" by Berimbau Trio – and "Preciso Aprender A Ser So" and "Mensagem" by Quinteto Sambatida.

Zelia FonsecaO Terceiro Olho Da Abelha ... CD
Enja (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
Fantastic work from Zelia Fonseca – singer, songwriter, and acoustic guitarist – working here in a special space that reminds us of some of our favorite female talents from the Brazilian scene of the 60s and 70s! The sound isn't bossa, nor any sort of easy mode to label – a bit like Joyce in that Fonseca has created a special style of her own, one so unique, we'll beg her pardon for trying to use Joyce as a reference point in anything but the positive presence of her music. Instrumentation is relatively spare on most numbers – a bit of additional acoustic bass, percussion, or other elements – but even these small additions resonate beautifully, thanks to the power of Zelia in the lead – and the wonderfully resonant style of recording. Titles include "No Ar", "Coracao Abelha", "Fora Da Rede", "Amoramento", "Trilha Do Mel", and "Baile Do Desassossego". CD

Francoise HardyLa Question (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... Just Sold Out!
One of the coolest albums ever from Francoise Hardy – a set that has her working with Brazilian arranger Tuca, who brings a very different vibe to her music – a mode that wraps together acoustic guitar, post-bossa arrangements, and some dark-tinged vocals from Francoise – all in a mode that feels like the best work from Nara Leao or Joyce at the time! The great Guy Pederson plays bass on the record, too – in this way that's subtle, but extremely powerful in the setting – bringing some deep currents to the music alongside Hardy's acoustic guitar – all wrapped up in an echoey style of production that's completely sublime. The whole thing feels much more like a lost late 60s side on Elenco Records than Hardy's usual music – and titles include "Doigts", "Viens", "La Question", "Mer", "Le Martien", "Chanson D'O", and "Bati Mon Nid".

Eddie JeffersonMain Man ... LP
Inner City, 1977. Very Good+ ... $4.99
One of our favorite albums ever from Eddie Jefferson – one of the last sessions he ever recorded as a leader, and a stone cooker through and through! The arrangements here are by Slide Hampton, who hits a really soulful groove for the set – one that moves away from some of the more experimental modes of other Jefferson dates of the 70s, and hits a snapping, swinging style that moves Eddie back to his hippest modes of the 60s. Hampton plays trombone in the group, and other players include Charles Sullivan on trumpet, Richie Cole on alto, Junior Cook on tenor, Hamiet Bluiett on baritone, and Harold Mabern on piano and electric piano. Leon Thomas produced the record, and Joyce Lawson guests as the female voice on a remake of "Moody's Mood For Love". Other titles include a killer version of Duke Pearson's "Jeannine" that is probably worth the price of the album alone – and there's also "Benny's From Heaven" and "Freedom Jazz Dance", both of which are great, too – plus "Summertime", "Exactly Like You", and "Night Train".

One of the most beautiful interpretations of the work of Hermeto Pascoal we've ever heard – a record that manages to get at the brilliance of his compositions, yet present them in a completely different context than you might expect from Hermeto's own work. The album's mostly a duet effort – featuring Mike Marshall on mandolin and guitar and Jovino Santos Neto on piano and flute – and although Hermeto joins in a bit himself on a few tracks, most of the record is done in a spare, introspective mode that mostly just mixes the piano and stringed instruments in a lovely, light way. Titles include "Serenata", "Sertao Alagoano", "Quanto Mais Longe Mais Perto", "Os Guizos", "Joyce", "Floresta", and "Sept 1". CD

Ellen McIlwaine's got to be one of the most unique talents of the past 50 years – a skilled guitarist, and great singer – working in a blend of folk, jazz, and soul that lies somewhere between the best tunes by Joyce and Joni Mitchell! This album's one of 2 classics she cut for Polydor back in her early years – a mixture of live and studio tunes that are filled with scatting vocals, skittish rhythms, and some really tight (and almost funky) work on acoustic guitar!

Moody's working here alongside some sweet work on electric piano by either Jodie Christian or Tennyson Stephens – and with some sly and soulful arrangements by Chicago soul maestro Richard Evans, who also plays bass on the record and gives it a style that's almost an extension of the later Cadet kind of groove. The album features an excellent funky instrumental version of " First Thing I Do In the Morning", originally a funky vocal 45 by Chicago singer Joyce Williams – and other cuts include "Trilby", "Don't Let Me Be Lonely", "World Is A Ghetto", "Good Sense Humor Man", and "Country City Country".

Hot Cup, 2017. New Copy ... $9.99
Fantastic work from a group who never fail to blow our minds – and who also seem to try out something different with each new record, yet never falter at all in their progress forward! Mostly Other People Do The Killing may have one of the longest names in jazz, but they've also got a brash approach that really lives up to the cockiness of their name – a confident step in whatever direction they want, which always leads them down the best path. This time around, they're mixing both modern and trad jazz expressions with literary inspiration from writers who include Thomas Pynchon, Kurt Vonnegut, James Joyce, Cormac McCarthy, and David Foster Wallace – each of whom are listed as reference points for certain songs – which are based around snippets of their text, then transformed into a musical mode. The instrumentation is a very offbeat take on trad – with Jon Irabgon on tenor and sopranino sax, Steven Bernstein on trumpet and slide trumpet, Dave Taylor on bass trombone, Brandon Seabrook on banjo and electronics, Kevin Shea on drums, Ron Stabinsky on piano, and leader Moppa Elliott on bass. Titles include "Kilgore", "Hi Nella", "Honey Hole", "Bloomsberg", "Glen Riddle", "Mason & Dixon", and "Five". CD

EMI (Brazil), 1975. Used ... $11.99
A mid 70s masterpiece from Milton Nascimento – a record that still has the soaringly ambitious touches of his other work from the time, but which also comes across with a slightly personal feel too! Nascimento's voice is near-perfect – even more spacious and heavenly than before – and the backings have a positive, triumphant quality that's extremely upbeat and bright, yet without sounding commercial at all. There's still plenty of jazzy undercurrents in the music – which was co-written with Fernando Brant, Toninho Horta, and Ronaldo Bastos – and players on the record include Wagner Tiso on keyboards, Toninho Horta on guitar, and Nivaldo Ornelas on flute. There's an additional chorus on some tracks – with vocals by Joyce, Horta, and others – and although the overall sound is impossible to describe adequately, it's a heavenly mix of complicated arrangements, unusual instrumentation, and Milton's fantastic voice. Titles include "Minas", "Idolatrada", "Paula e Bebeto", "Leila", "Ponta De Areia", "Gran Circo", and "Simples". CD also includes two bonus cuts – a cool cover of "Norwegian Wood" and "Caso Voce Queira Saber". CD

Philips (Brazil), 1970. Used ... $16.99
One of the greatest records ever by this amazing Brazilian singer! This hard-to-find session from 1970 is a perfect bridge between Elis' early bossa work and her later albums as a sophisticated pop singer – and it's got a wonderfully lively feel all the way through, with loads of uptempo numbers that have a great great groove! Erlon Chaves handled the arrangements – and his style takes off from the marvelous work that Roberto Menescal did on Gal's albums from 1969, with lots of breezy orchestrations, and nice jazzy patches of instrumentation. Titles include "Ate Ai Morreu Neves", "Vou Deitar E Rolar", "Bicho Do Mato", "Nao Tenha Medo", "These Are The Songs", "Frevo", "Fechado Pra Balanco", and a version of Joyce's "Copacabana Velha De Guerra".

Adventure Music, 1960s/1970s/1990s. New Copy 2CD ... $9.99 26.98
A fantastic collection of work by one of Brazil's greatest arrangers ever! Moacir Santos had an approach that was unlike anyone else – more complicated than Jobim, but with a gentle honesty that made any style sound spontaneous in his hands. The 2CD package features new versions of work from a number of different rare albums by Santos – including long out of print 60s sessions, his few Blue Note sides, and a few newer sets – and the sound of the album is very much in the vein of Santos' best moments from the 70s. Guest on the sessions include Ed Motta, Joyce, Milton Nascimento, and Joao Donato – and the quality of the work is impeccable, truly one of the greatest new releases we've heard from Brazil in years! Titles include "Coisa No 6", "Kathy", "De Repente, Estou Feliz", "Anon", "Coisa No 10", "Lamento Astral", "Marcatu, Nacao Do Amor", "Suk Cha", and "Bluishmen". 2CDs – and a great booklet too! CD
