Joyce CoolingCameo ... LP
Nucleus, 1988. Near Mint- ... $249.99
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". LP, Vinyl record album

JoyceFiz Uma Viagem – Songs Of Dorival Caymmi ... CD
Rambling (Japan), 2017. New Copy ... $28.99
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

JoycePalavras E Som ... CD
Biscoito Fino (Brazil), 2017. New Copy ... $19.99
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, Sivuca, Tutty Moreno, Celia Vaz, & OthersBrasil ... CD
Soul Jazz (UK), 1994. New Copy Gatefold ... $18.99 22.99
A really groundbreaking album of Brazilian sounds – a set recorded in the mid 90s by a London label – but one with a vibe that stretches back to the most important classics of the Brazilian scene in the 60s and 70s! In a way, the whole record's a bit out of time – nothing at all like Brazilian music being made in the 90s, and really the beginning of a moment of British-based preservation of lost genius that would flower in countless reissues and new recordings from labels like Mr Bongo and Far Out! Yet this set preceded most of those – and marks a first effort along those lines – done with help from Joe Davis of Far Out, and a key combination of Brazilian talents from previous decades – including singers Celia Vaz and Wanda Sa, drummer Tutty Moreno, saxophonist Teco Cardoso, trombonist Raul De Souza, percussionist Pirulito, and the most legendary talents of Joyce and Sivuca! The tunes have this beautiful mixture of natural, organic energy and modern jazz inflections – very much like the kind of sounds that Hermeto Pascoal and Airto unlocked with Quarteto Novo, but also with the energy of Joyce's classic material too – recorded beautifully, with an instantly timeless vibe. Titles include "Batucada No 1", "Capoeira", "Magica", "Berimbau", "Amazon River", "Misturada", "Forro", and "Zanzibar". CD

Joyce Elaine Yuille with Timo LassyWelcome To My World – Part 2 ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2015. Near Mint- ... $13.99
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 "Chaos", "Make Right", "Parallel Moon Interlude", "It's Madness", "Time To Love Again", and "Come With Me (slow version)". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Harry Allen with JoyceSomething About Jobim ... CD
Stunt (Denmark), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
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

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".

Papa John Creach & Midnight SunI'm The Fiddle Man ... LP

One of Papa's roots, rock, and funk albums from the 70s – featuring old-timey vocals and jazz fiddle, next to some tighter 70s backings from the Midnight Sun combo! 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. Titles include "Enjoy", "I'm The Fiddle Man", "The Rocker", "Fiddlin Around", "I Know Where I'm Going", and "Joyce". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Ted HarrisTed Harris Presents More Giants Of Jazz ... LP
Harris & Dyer, 1982. Very Good+ ... $11.99
A really wonderful little album – a session of indie soul jazz from the early 80s, and proof that quality straight jazz recordings were still being made in the underground! Harris himself is the leader of the session – which features a loosely shifting ensemble of players that includes Hank Edmonds on piano, Ray Drummond on bass, Vernel Fournier on drums, Richard Williams on trumpet, Charles Williams on alto, and Kiane Zawadi on trombone – all players with credentials on better-known recordings, working here in an informal setting that really captures the sort of energy they must have had working in a small group setting at the time. The album's got a few great originals that really step out nicely – "Song For Joyce", "Lo's Delight", and "Rhonda" – all of which have a nicely grooving, but easygoing quality – one that brings out some especially nice notes in Harris' raspy work on tenor and baritone. Other tracks include "When Sunny Gets Blue", "Hey There", and "Stella By Starlight". LP, Vinyl record album

Philips/Carlyne (France), Late 60s. Near Mint- ... $14.99
A totally cool session of avant Parisian jazz – assembled by the great Andre Hodeir, whose Jazz Et Jazz is one of the best modernist jazz efforts from postwar France. The work attempts to set music to the writings of James Joyce – and it features the voices of Nicole Croisille and Monique Aldebert, plus the musicians Pierre Michelot on bass, Bernard Lubat on vibes, Daniel Humair on drums, Michel Portal and Pierre Gossez on saxes, and Roger Guerin on trumpet.

Edu LoboTempo Presente ... CD
Philips (Japan), 1980. New Copy ... $13.99
Wonderfully warm electric work from Edu Lobo – a sublime late 70s set that we'd stack right up there with our favorite albums of the time by artists like Joyce, Marcos Valle, or Joao Donato! As with all three of those artists, Edu uses some 70s electric elements to really transform his sound – but always in a way that's never commercial or slick at all – and which instead realizes this complicated jazzy vibe that comes through even better with this instrumentation than it did during the bossa nova years! Lobo's vocals have a quality that's mature, yet really personal too – and the album's a real testament to his great songwriting skills over the years – even on the few instrumental tracks. Joyce guests on one track, as does Dorival Caymmi – and the set also features some backing vocals from Boca Livre. Titles include "Tempo Presente", "Rei Morto, Rei Posto", "Quase Sempre", "Balada De Outono", and "Dono Do Lugar". CD

Mostly Other People Do The KillingLoafer's Hollow ... CD
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

✨✧ Milton NascimentoMinas ... CD
EMI (Brazil), 1975. Used ... $8.99
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

We'll be honest and say that we didn't know anything about this one in the past – but we really enjoy the record for its warm grooves and gently soulful vocals. The overall sound is somewhere in the mode of Lo Borges, but there's some interesting, almost Joyce-like guitar overtones that give it a different feel than you might expect.

The record shifts effortlessly between jazzy fusion and more experimental instrumentation – a skittish assortment of sounds and rhythms that fit together surprisingly well, dancing with life and creativity that are never diminished. As with much of Hermeto's work, there's a heck of a lot going on here, and the album's as rewarding on repeated listens as it is ear-catching on the first one!

A Brazilian duo with a really wonderful sound – one that manages to merge acoustic instrumentation, vocal harmonies, and some light electric touches – all with a sound that's both jazzy and folksy at the same time! Edu Passeto and Gui Tavares have this unique vibe that maybe reminds us a bit of some of the Quarto Records material at the end of the 60s – and a warmth that might put them somewhere in the territory of Joyce – but, as with so many one of a kind Brazilian records from the golden years, there's something going on here that's very much its own – and which makes this obscure indie treasure the kind of record you'll keep going back to over the years, finding something new every time. Titles include "Vento Me Traz", "Canto Livre", "Heroi De Jornal", "Noite Que Brincou De Lua", "Seguir", and "Menino De Pindorama". LP, Vinyl record album

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

Venus (Japan), 2017. New Copy 2CD ... $32.99
A beautiful live performance – recorded in Italy, but by a group of musicians who record for Japan's Venus Records label – easily one of the classiest jazz imprints of the past decade or two! And as a further twist, a number of the artists here are American – which makes the whole thing a great trans-national performance, handled with energy to match! Yet even without all of that pedigree, the music is wonderful in and of itself – long tracks that seem to bring even more of an edge to the usual Venus presentation – especially in the rhythmic department, which can sometimes be a bit more subtle on the label's studio recordings. The group features lots of heavy work on the bottom – bassists Aldo Zunino and Nicola Barbon, drummers Roberto Facchinetti and Byron Landham, and percussionist Ernesttico – and strong solos are by Jerry Weldon on tenor and Massimo Farao on piano. There's also a few vocal moments – with singers who include Daria Toffali, Joyce Yuille, and Denise King – and titles include "Estrada Branca", "Theme From Mash", "Get Up", "September Song", "Sunny", "Triste", "O Amor Em Paz", and "Teach Me Tonight".

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!

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!

✨✧ Cannonball Adderley with Sergio MendesQuiet Nights Of Quiet Stars ... LP
Capitol/Pickwick, 1962. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Cannonball Adderley recorded this nice little groover in 1962, when American musicans were just getting on the bossa tip, and still keeping things pretty authentic. The record was cut in New York with Sergio Mendes' early Bossa Rio group – the legendary Brazilian jazz ensemble that featured Paulo Moura, Dom Um Romao, and Durval Ferreira. The mixture of tight bossa rhythms and Cannon's soulful sax is totally great – and it's only because the Riverside label was folding at the time that the record never got bigger fame. Includes the cuts "Joyce's Samba", "Clouds", "Minha Saudade", "Corcovado", "Batida Diferentes", and "Sambops". LP, Vinyl record album

Jazz versions of classics by Antonio Carlos Jobim – all done by a group arranged and directed by guitarist Mario Adnet, and featuring guest work from Joyce, Helio Delmiro, Romero Lumbambo, and others! The sound here is really fresh – not merely just a reworking of Jobim's original ideals, but a recasting of them in lightly arranged modes that often take on the shapes, colors, and textures of work by Moacir Santos – styles that are warm, but often have some sharper edges underneath, thanks to great interplay between the instruments. Bits of horns, guitar, piano, and percussion all come together with a tremendous sense of grace – and titles include "Tema Jazz", "Sue Ann", "Domingo Sincopado", "So Danco Samba", "Paulo Voo Livre", "Polo Pony", and "Bate Boca".
