Harry Allen with JoyceSomething About Jobim ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... $15.99 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

JoyceAgua E Luz ... LP
EMI (Brazil), 1981. Very Good+ ... $34.99
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".

JoycePalavras E Som (Japanese paper sleeve edition) ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... $28.99
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".

Joyce LeftenantIt's Too Late! ... LP
Versatile, 1978. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $5.99
A sophisticated soul set from the late 70s – done by vocalist Joyce Leftenant, with a smooth groove that reminds us a bit of the mix of jazz and soul you'd hear in Marlena Shaw at the time! Joyce is working here with large arrangements from Mario Sprouse, played by a great range of jazz funk luminaries – including Hank Crawford on alto and Johnny Hammond on keyboards! The instrumentation is nice and strong – so much so that at points, the record almost feels like a jazz album with vocals – instead of the other way around. Titles include "Inside Of Me", "It's Too Late", "You Loved Me All The Time", "Let Me Be Your Woman", "I Believe You", and "Everything That Touches You". LP, Vinyl record album

Far Out (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Plenty cool sounds from Joyce – a lady who's always been the definition of the world used in the title – thanks to her totally unique, totally wonderful style! The album's one of a number of recent gems that have Joyce really going back to basics – hitting that soaring blend of vocals and acoustic guitar that first made her 70s recordings so great, cut here with small combo instrumentation that includes Tutty Moreno on drums and Helio Alves on piano. But the real charm, as always, comes from Joyce – the way she works her voice, plays her guitar, and ties the two of them together in a manner that's unlike anyone else – a sound inspired by bossa, inflected by jazz, but totally her own throughout. Familiar tunes get completely remade with the approach – as you'll hear on the set – which includes these sublime Joyced-up versions of "Cool", "Let's Do It", "Love For Sale", "Fever", "The Shadow Of Your Smile", "Invitation", and "Moon River" – all sounding very unique, and plenty darn cool!

✨✧ 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".

✨✧ Joyce Elaine Yuille with Timo LassyWelcome To My World ... CD
Schema (Italy), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
A hell of a singer, working here with some wonderful grooves from Timo Lassy – an artist we've really loved for his own jazzy projects in the past! Joyce Elaine Yuille has this style that's very classic, and very groovy – jazz-based, with a nice rasp in her voice that really brings out some of the more soulful qualities in the music – and able to write her own lyrics, too – which makes for a wonderful record that's full of fresh sounds at every turn! Lassy's music is wonderful too – tightly snapping on the rhythms, but never forced – and with a jazz current that's a nice change from other contemporary soul production, which might have been added to the record with a bigger label. But clearly, the real star of the show is Joyce – a talent that will definitely be huge in years to come – a rock-solid singer and songwriter who may well turn out to be the female equivalent of Gregory Porter. Titles include "Come With Me", "Tryin Times", "Chaos", "It's Madness", "Make Right", "Welcome To My World", "Follow The Sun", and "Late I Rise". CD

The set was recorded in LA, but it's got a feel that's very similar to work coming out of the Malaco scene in Jackson at the time – older southern soul styles infused with some of the more modern production techniques of the time. Titles include "Love Uprising", "Passion", "Stop Dogging Me", and "Try Me Tonight". LP, Vinyl record album

Efficient Space (Australia), 1960s/1970s/1980s/Early 90s. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
The title uses a lot of words to try to get at the sound of music within – but one drop of the needle tells us we're in a very special sonic space! The music here is a lot more thoughtful and personal than you'd guess from the DIY – and there's a really timeless vibe that somehow unites tracks from the 60s through the 90s – although there's also a very special core right around the early 80s, where there's a kind of personal post-punk singer/songwriter vibe that some of these cuts seem to either prefigure or continue. The collection is beautiful – definitely one to inspire a whole genre of crate-digging on its own – and titles include "I Remember" by Scott Seskind, "Daddy's Little Girl" by Warfield Spillers, "I Wouldn't Dream Of It" by Joyce Heath, "I So Liked Spring" by Linda Smith, "Cold Cafe" by Karen Marks, "Consciousness Of Happening, "Joanna" by Once, "Frozen Laughter" by The Rising Storm, "Home Before Dark" by Nora Guthrie, "Feeling Sheepish" by Some Of My Best Friends Are Canadians, and "Sarra" by Gary Davenport.

Clarice & Sergio AssadReliquia ... CD
Adventure Music, 2016. Used ... $6.99
Really lovely sounds from the father/daughter team of Clarice and Sergio Assad – a pair who would already be great as a musical duo, even without a family connection! Sergio plays acoustic guitar throughout – with a fullness of sound, but also the lighter, lyrical sensibility that makes him a perfect match for Clarice's vocals – which have that mix of jazz and more personal expression we love in our favorite Brazilian singers from the 70s – like Tania Maria or Joyce. The songs are simple, and often poetic – but never in a soppy way – more like they're being written in air by guitar and voice, creating a marvelous portrait in sound. Titles include "Capoeira", "Cidade", "Sol De Clave", "Ventos", "The Last Song", "Angela", and "Song For My Father". CD

Sublime vocals from Clarice Assad – a singer who's got some ties to older Brazilian traditions, but who also really makes things all her own – with a dynamic sense of phrasing that's perfectly backed up by some equally great instrumentation! Clarice handled all the arrangments – which blend flute, strings, vocals, and lots of deft percussion – but always in this lean way that moves along effortlessly with her beautiful vocals. The approach has all the fresh appeal of Joyce at her best – although Clarice is quite different overall, and often open to a much wider range of influences. Titles include "De Perna Pro Ar", "Passaros", "Fantasia", "Tempestade", "Why", "Lachrimae", "Dedezinha De Maio", and "Revolta Das Flores". CD

Raw Fusion (Sweden), 2008. Used ... $7.99
One of the most soulful sets we've ever heard from the Raw Fusion label – work that's heavy on influences from 60s and 70s soul, but which also has a slightly cosmic undercurrent too! The rhythms here have that crisp, contemporary groove that always makes Raw Fusion great – but the songs are also filled with warm horns, clubby basslines, and compelling soul vocals from singers who include Christin Deralas, Karl Wagner, Abby Joyce, Carmen Hendricks, and Kylie Auldist! Bennson's got a really great way of bringing these talents together – using them to bridge the gap between classic and 21st Century soul styles – in a really focused groove of his own. A real killer that lives up to the promise we first heard in Raw Fusion years ago – with titles that include "Incredible", "Let The Love", "Accidental Lover", "Whatever It Is", "Can't Get Enough", "Fly High", "One Minute Left", "Step To The Plate", and "The Greatest".

Black Jazz, 1974. Near Mint- (reissue)... $16.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

The style's a bit weird, but actually works well on the best numbers – thanks to some larger arrangements on the set from Art Freeman, who could always manage to make a messed up album come together.

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

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! Tracks include a killer version of "Ode To Billy Joe", plus "Can't Find My Way Home", "Wings Of A Horse", "Toe Hold", "Losing You", "Weird of Hermiston", and "Up From the Skies".

Hot Cup, 2017. Used ... $8.99
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

Soulmusic.com (UK), 1970s/Early 80s. New Copy 2CD ... $14.99
A fantastic collection of work from Mother's Finest – one of the more unique groups of the 70s, and one of the few who could equally balance sounds from soul, funk, and rock in their music! There's always lots of heavy guitar on the Mother's Finest grooves – and singer Joyce Washington has a sound that puts her right up there with Nona Hendryx for sheer, raw power alongside a fuzzy guitar solo – a mode that works especially well on the funky tracks, of which there are many on the set! The package brings together lots of unusual bits, plus album tracks – and even includes some of the group's rare early material for RCA, not originally issued in the 70s. 37 tracks in all – with titles that include "Bone Song", "Living Hero", "You Move Me", "Monster People", "Hard Rock Lover", "Big Shot Romeo", "Mickey's Monkey", "Baby Love", "Give You All The Love", "Rain", "Dontcha Wanna Love Me", "Run Joe", "Funky Mountain", "Love Changes", "Secret Service", "U Turn Me On", "Watch My Stylin", and "Can't Fight The Feelin".

Titles include "Aquelas Coisas Todas", "Insensatez", "Cruzando O Sertao", "Ahie", "Sonora Garoa", "Feira De Mangaio", "April Child", and "Gloria". CD

✨✧ Maria Rita (Maria Rita Stumpf)Brasileira ... LP
Selva (Brazil), 1988. New Copy (reissue)... $23.99
Not the same Maria Rita that rose to international fame in the past decade or so – but an earlier, much more obscure singer with a nicely rootsy vibe – one whose presence in the Brazilian music scene is maybe more welcome to our ears than her famous later namesake! The album came out at the end of the 80s, but has a sound that feels more like the experimental generation of MPB in the 70s – some moments that have the brashness of Gal Costa around her India album, other moments of gentleness that recall the sensitive soul of Joyce, and maybe a few slight touches of the deeper drama of Maria Bethania – and yet, like all of those artists, this Maria Rita is very much her own person – as can easily be heard by the lack of pop production or commercial efforts on this very unique album. Titles include "Cantico Brasileiro No 1", "Cancao Da Gaora", "Lamento Africano/Rictus", "A Cidade", "Melodia De Veludo", and "Trilhas". LP, Vinyl record album

Alceu Valenca70 (Molhado de Suor/Vivo/Espelho Cristalino/Saudade de Pernambuco) (180 gram 4LP set) ... LP
Som Livre/Polysom (Brazil), Late 70s. New Copy 4LP ... $129.99
Important early work from underground Brazilian legend Alceu Valenca – four albums served up in a beautiful box set! First up is Molhado De Suor – done with a nicely northern Brazil sound that involves plenty of acoustic percussion, guitar, and nice use of flute and craviola! The style here is almost a sophistication of earlier forro modes – done in a style that has traces of the Minas Geraes approach to songwriting and production, but a simpler, earthier feel overall. It's hard to peg this one accurately, but there's a simple genius here that's immediately compelling! Titles include "Borboleta", "Punhal De Prata", "Dia Branco", "Pedras De Sal", "Chutando Pedras", "Molhando De Suor", and "Mensageira Dos Anjos". Next is Vivo – a great live presentation of the 70s genius of Alceu Valenca – one that really keeps the organic feel of his best work in the studio, while adding in some of the spontaneity and warmth of a concert! Valenca plays acoustic guitar and sings amidst a smallish group that includes Ze Ramalho on ukulele and guitars, plus added flute, bass, and percussion – all used to build up the songs slowly and earthily, with that great mix of progressive and folksy styles we love in his work. Titles include "Descida Da Ladeira", "Voce Pensa", "Sol E Chuva", "Casamento Da Raposa Com O Rouxinol", and "Pontos Cardeais". Next is Espelho Cristalino – one of the important 70s albums from Alceu Valenca – with titles that include "Agalpoado", "Espelho Cristalino", "Eu Sou Voce", "Sete Leguas", and "A Danca Das Borboletas". Last up is the incredible Saudade De Pernambuco – a fantastic late 70s album from underground Brazilian legend Alceu Valenca – and a set that follows in the same tradition of exile as earlier albums by Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil! The set was recorded in Paris, and has a sound that's maybe even earthier and stripped-down than some of Valenca's albums from a few years before – lots of percussion in the rhythms, entrancing guitar lines, and lyrics that are beautifully expressive, but never overdone – with a sensitivity that we find stunning, and which may make the record one of Alceu's most immediately appealing. There's a sense of sadness that lies in the music at much deeper levels than hinted at by the titles – but there's also a complexity of acoustic instrumentation and voice that creates a lightness, too – a richer, more sophisticated sound – but without any attempt to polish the music or overproduce it – a bit like Joyce at her best. Titles include "Cana Caiana", "Apoena", "Por Toda La", "Tres Galeras", "Saudade De Pernambuco", and "Como Nos Sonhos Fatais". LP, Vinyl record album

VariousGiant Single – The Profile Records Rap Anthology (colored vinyl) (2017 Record Store Day Release) ... LP
Profile, Mid 80s. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... $24.99
The Profile Records label may be best-remembered as the initial home of Run DMC – but back in the day, the company was one of the top imprints on the New York scene – and one of the few who could be a bit bigtime, yet still keep the right sort of ears to the ground! The selection here certainly lives up to that legacy – as the music is filled with some overlooked treasures, mixed with a few key classics – all to serve up a perfect portrait of the hip hop underground as it was really breaking out and moving up! Titles include "Genius Rap" by Dr Jeckyll & Mr Hyde, "Whip Rap" by Disco Four, "Word Of Mouth" by King Kut, "A Fly Guy" by Pebblee Poo, "Fresh" by Fresh 3 MCs, "Beat Bop" by Rammelzee Vs K-Rob, "Nightmares" by Dana Dane, "Get Off My Tip" by Masterdon Committee, "Lies Lies" by Rap-O-Matic, "It's My Beat" by Sweet Tee & Jazzy Joyce, "Drag Rap" by The Showboys, "Here Comes That Beat" by Pumpkin & The Profile All-Stars, and "Sucker MCs (Krush Groove 1)" by Run-DMC.

A whoppingly huge survey of the role of female talents in jazz – not just the usual singers who are so often put at the foreground of the female jazz canon, but also a range of instrumentalists and female jazz groups – all pulled together here in material from the earliest days of jazz on up to the start of the 60s! The package features one full disc on piano players – 23 tracks by artists as diverse as Joyce Collins, Jutta Hipp, Terry Pollard, Toshiko Akioshi, Lil Armstrong, Mary Lou Williams, Dorothy Donegan, and Patti Brown – a very well-selected batch that includes some great surprises! The next disc features musicians on a range of instruments – from trumpeter Clora Bryant, to organist Shirley Scott, alto saxophonist Vi Redd, harpist Dorothy Ashby, and trombonist Melba Liston – plus some more obscure names as well! The last CD is a great overview of all-girl bands, with an especially strong focus on the swing years – with work by The Hip Chicks, Ina Ray Hutton, Ivy Benton, Mary Lou Williams, Beryl Booker, and The International Sweethearts Of Rhythm.
