JoyceCool ... CD
Far Out (UK), 2015. New Copy ... $14.99
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!

JoyceMusic Inside ... CD
Verve (Japan), 1990. Used ... $8.99
One of the few Joyce albums ever issued in the US – a breezy outing from the end of the 80s, recorded with a bit more jazz than usual, and a number of English-language lyrics that were clearly intended to help break her into a wider market! Joyce is still very much in a comfortable setting on the record – dominating with her work on acoustic guitar and vocals – but she's also getting a bit more instrumental help than usual from a range of guests that include Kenny Werner, Ray Drummond, Ralp Moore, and Marvin Smitty Smith. The English alone is worth the price of the record – as we're usually relying on just our love of her voice to appreciate Joyce's usual Portuguese lyrics – and titles include "Bird Of Brazil", "Bird Of Japan", "Stonewashed", "Belafonte", "Essential", "Mysteries", and a nice cover of The Beatles' "Help".

Joyce Elaine Yuille with Timo LassyWelcome To My World ... LP
Schema (Italy), 2015. New Copy ... $16.99
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 "Come With Me", "Tryin Times", "Chaos", "It's Madness", "Make Right", "Welcome To My World", "Follow The Sun", and "Late I Rise". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JoyceAnos 80s (Feminina/Agua E Luz/Tardes Cariocas/Saudade Do Futuro/bonus tracks) (4CD set) ... CD
EMI/Discobertas (Brazil), Early 80s. New Copy 4CD ... Temporarily 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".

Far Out (UK), 1976. New Copy (reissue)... Temporarily Out Of Stock
An amazing little record – a 70s session that we'd easily rank right up there with the best recordings ever from Joyce, but one that's only being issued here for the first time ever! The sound is brilliant – that beautiful mix of strong and sweet that you'll always find when Joyce is at her best – and the set features equally wonderful contributions from Nana Vasconcelos on percussion, and Mauricio Maestro on bass, vocals, and guitar! All sounds are acoustic, but have this otherworldly feel – that buoyant, sparkling sort of quality on Joyce classics like Feminina or Agua E Luz – the there's a driving sense of rhythm that really moves the whole album – taking it far past what you might expect from the spare instrumentation. Tremendous stuff throughout, and a musical discovery that has us falling in love with the music of Joyce all over again! Titles include "Clareana", "Metralhadeira", "Nacional Kid", "Tudo Bonito", "Memorias Do Porvir", "Visoes Do Amanhecer", "Chegada", and "Banana". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ JoyceBossa Duets ... CD
Sony (Japan), 2003. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
Magical work from the lovely Joyce – a set of duets with some of her favorite players and singers – some of our favorites too! The album has Joyce working in a stripped-down and intimate style – vocals and acoustic guitar tripping out over gentle bossa rhythms, joined on various tracks by artists that include Joao Donato, Toninho Horta, Johnny Alf, Wanda Sa, and daughter Ana Martins. Given the presence of the older bossa luminaries, the album's got a sophisticated and mature sound that's quite nice, and in contrast to some of Joyce's other recent recordings – a bit mellower, perhaps, but also more deeply thoughtful, and at many levels, sadder and wiser. Titles include "Lugar Comum", "Voce E Eu", "Yarabela", "Plexus", "London Samba", "O Sapo", "E Vamos La", and "Fa Da Bahia". And just in case you were wondering, all tracks are exclusive to this album – recorded in 2003! CD

Rambling (Japan), 2016. New Copy Gatefold ... Out Of Stock
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".

Clarice & Sergio AssadReliquia ... CD
Adventure Music, 2016. New Copy ... $12.99 15.99
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

A gentler, more laidback album that some of Maria Bethania's more dramatic efforts from the early 70s – but still a pretty great little record, served up with a sense of poise and power that few of her contemporaries could match! Backings are arranged by Perinho Albuquerque, in a way that's often relatively spare, but still full at the bottom – letting the vocals take most of the top of the sound, in a way that makes for a nicely personal quality to the record. Tracks include numbers written by Joyce, Caetano Veloso, and Luiz Gonzaga Jr – with titles that include "Queda D'Agua", "Mel", "Gota De Sangue", "Da Cor Brazileira", and "Ela E Eu". CD

Doug CarnAdams Apple ... LP
Black Jazz, 1974. New Copy (reissue)... $9.99
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

Francoise HardyLa Question (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Parlophone, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $19.99 21.98
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".

The sound here is amazing – kind of a jazzy extension of territory explored by Milton Nascimento a few years before – served up with a warmly dancing groove with the same fluid feel as Joyce at her best! Horta's getting some wonderful help here to realize his musical vision – a lineup that includes Lo Borges on vocals, plus instrumentation from Wagner Tiso, Raul De Souza, Luis Alves, and Roberto Ribeiro – as well as a guest appearance by Pat Metheny! Titles include the amazing track "Aqui Oh!", plus "Saguin", "Caso Antigo", "Prato Feito", "Vento", "Minha Casa", and "Era So Comeco Nosso Fim". CD

Jazztronik on Blue Note – and with a bold new sound as well – one that's even more Brazilian based than on previous records! Jazztronik's always had an ear for Brazilian sounds and styles – which are then integrated into their own music – but this time around, the approach is a lot more organic, and almost more respectful of the older modes of the 60s and 70s – particularly the best jazzy styles of the latter decade! Acoustic instrumentation rings out strongly on most numbers – especially percussion and guitar – and the album carries echoes of older work by artists like Joyce, Elis Regina, and Edu Lobo – and features singers who include Robert Gallagher, Nina Miranda, and Adriana Vasques! Titles include "Samba De Flora", "Aquelas Coisas Todos", "Aguas De Marco", "Jazz Carnival", "Menina Ilza", and "Upa Neguinho". 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".

Milton NascimentoMinas (with bonus tracks) ... CD
EMI (Japan), 1975. New Copy ... $13.99
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". This Japanese CD edition includes 2 bonus tracks: a nice cover of "Norwegian Wood" and "Caso Voce Quiera Saber". CD

Wanda Sa and Celia Vaz sing dual vocals on a haunting set of tracks that have a strangely spacey sound, thanks to the lilting loveliness of the ladies' voices. The overall effect is kind of like a prime late 70s/early 80s Joyce session – and it's no surprise that Joyce guests on the record, along with Gal Costa, Nana Caymmi, and Quarteto Em Cy. Titles include "Amazon River", "Aqua de Beber", "Lugar Comum", "Uma Bencao", and "Molambo". Very nice! CD

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

Deck Disk (Brazil), 1979. New Copy ... $19.99
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". CD

Numero, Late 60s/Early 70s. New Copy 2LP ... $21.99 22.98
A long-overdue collection – and a rich document of one of our favorite sides of the Chicago soul scene! The package is devoted to the tiny Nickel and Penny labels, but it's also equally a set dedicated to legendary radio DJ Richard Pegue – whose work in both mainstream soul and later dusties formats really helped to shape our understanding of soul music! Pegue produced and wrote nearly every track on the set – which makes the collection one of the most unified the Numero Group has ever produced – a true tribute to Richard's great ear for a groovy soul record, and to all the smaller-name groups he helped support on the Windy City scene. The booklet does a great job of telling Pegue's story – really getting at the unique vision he brought to Chicago soul, and the wit and warmth that made him a favorite of many folks over the space of decades. The music alone is enough – stuff we've been waiting to get reissued for years – but together with the Numero research and booklet, the end result is sublime! Titles include "Just Say The Word" by Jerry Townes, "Fall In Love Again" by The Voices, "Never More" by Little Ben & The Cheers, "Why Do You Want To Make Me Sad" by The Norvells, "Instrumental 1" by Richard Terry & Company, "Shadows" by South Shore Commission, "This Is The Woman" by Sidney Pinchback, "The Ember Song" by Sidney Barnes, "Sign Of The Zodiac" by South Suburban Electric Strings, "This Love Of Mine" by Extensions, "Forever Is A Long Long Time" by The Voices, "Do The Pearl Girl (part 2)" by The Matta Baby, "I've Got To Find A Way" by Hallelujah Chorus, "First Thing I Do In The Morning" by Joyce Williams, and "I'm Gonna Get Even With You" by Little Ben & The Cheers.

Croydon Municipal (UK), Late 50s. New Copy ... $13.99
Great female rock from the end of the 50s – music that's got a mighty strong influence from rockabilly, hillbilly bop, and a fair bit of R&B – not to mention some of the bigger male singers of the time! Some of these cuts are covers, some are answer songs, and some are especially nice originals – and together, they offer up a hard-rocking set of all-gal tunes that are quite different from some of the sweeter pop material of the time! Take Wanda Jackson and Janis Martin as a starting point – then let your imagination run wild as the set opens up into a great range of singles from a variety of scenes – all unified by a no-nonsense sort of vibe. Titles include "Flipsville" by Stormy Gayle, "Move it On Over" by Rose Maddox, "Buddy" by Jackie Dee, "Razzle Dazzle" by Ella May Morse, "Black Cadillac" by Joyce Green, "Sentimental Fool" by Barbara Pittman, "Rocky Rolly Lover Boy" by Judy Faye, "Chili Dippin Baby" by Joyce Poynter, "He's A Real Gone Guy" by Anita Carter, "Just Whistle Or Call" by Martha Carson, "We're Gonna Bop" by Alvadean Coker, "Mercy" by Lorrie & Larry Collins, "Sugar Lump" by Patsy Ruth Elshire, and "Counting Sheep Over You" by Linda Glover.

Okeh/Kent (UK), Late 60s. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A definite obsession for fans of Northern Soul in the 60s – the mighty Okeh label, an imprint of Columbia Records that was reactivated for a few key years, to become a hotbed of Chicago soul! Okeh's efforts were often headed by legendary producer Carl Davis – who had an amazing ear not just for important new artists, but also for finding ways to change up the groove in the hippest way possible – often with some of the more sophisticated touches that represent just how special Chicago soul was at the time, in ways that are very different even from nearby Detroit! Some Okeh artists scored big, but the label also recorded many more who never hit the charts – but who turned out some incredible singles that are still the gold standard for collectors. Lots of that work is featured here – in a great package that's overflowing with rare tracks, presented with detailed notes as well. Titles on this second volume include "End Up Crying" by The Vibrations, "Let Me Show It To You" by The Fundamentals, "You Can't Take It Away" by Azie Mortimer, "Yesterday Is Gone" by The Variations, "Hello Heartaches, Goodbye Love" by Joyce Davis, "Can't Live Without Her" by Billy Butler, "You're Gonna Be Sorry" by The Opals, "Cool Breeze" by Gerald Sims, "Memories" by The Triumphs, and "After You There Can Be Nothing" by Walter Jackson.

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.

VariousSources – The Sleeping Bag Records Anthology (3 CD set) ... CD
Harmless (UK), 1980s. New Copy 3 CDs ... $22.99
An excellent overview of the legendary Sleeping Bag label – one of our favorite soul indies from the 80s – and a company we could always trust for groundbreaking hip hop and super-fresh soul! More than most labels at the stime, Sleeping Bag really had their ears to the ground on the New York scene – and steered clear of a lot of tinny cliches, and some of the too-electric modes that could dampen the soul of so many other artists – and instead really paved the way for a generation to come with their warmer, more organic sounds on both the dancefloor and the radio. This 3CD set's compiled by Bill Brewster – who also did the excellent other Sources volumes – and the package features 237 tracks that include "Your Life (orig party 12" mix)" by Konk, "Week End (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Class Action, "Clean On Your Bean (Francois K mix)" by Dinosaur L, "Come Into My Life (Mantronix 12" mix)" by Joyce Sims, "Ladies (12" mix)" by Mantronix, "Just Waiting For You (orig master dub 12" mix)" by Anne Marie, "Johnny The Fox (Mantronix 12" mix)" by Tricky Tee, "Jump Back (orig 12" mix)" by Dhar Braxton, "I Can't Wait (12" mix)" by Kariya, "Stay With You (orig 12" mix)" by Dubb Club, "Don't Play Me Raw (original house in effect 12" mix)" by Ecstasy, "Happiness (Frankie Knuckles 12" mix)" by Nicole, "Cumin Up (12" mix)" by Too Badd, "Sound Of JHS 126 Brooklyn (killer whale under water 12" mix)" by Chill Pill, "Somebody New (Larry Levan 12" mix)" by Jamaica Girls, and "Fresh Is The Word (Mantronik & John Poppo 12" mix)" by Mantronix with MC Tee.

✨✧ 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

✨✧ Clarice AssadImaginarium ... CD
Adventure Music, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
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
