Slow Music

CD (Item 913778) Wrasse, 2009 — Condition: Used
$9.99 ...


Spare jazzy work from Joyce – every bit as slow as the title promises, but never in a way that's boring or sleepy! Any new album from Joyce is always a treat, but this one seems to stand out even more from other recent efforts – as it marks a new style in her music, one that almost has the vocalist reaching for more sensitive, personal territory – recalling some of our favorite jazz singers in the process, yet still keeping enough of the acoustic charm we've always loved in her music. Joyce plays guitar along with her vocals, which undercuts any familiar torch/standard cliches – and gets support from piano, bass, and drums – the last of which are played by Tutty Moreno. Titles include "Convince Me", "Slow Music", "Medo De Amor", "Amor Amor", "Samba Do Grande Amor", "But Beautiful", "Olhos Negros", "Sobras Da Partilha", and "Valsa Do Pequeno Amor".  © 1996-2019, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.

Used CD Grade

We have only one grade for non-new CDs at Dusty Groove — "Used CD". This grade is somewhat all-encompassing, but we choose it because we try to offer Used CDs in the best shape possible. All of our Used CDs are guaranteed to play without skipping or flaws. If you purchase a Used CD from Dusty Groove, you have 1 week to play it to determine that it plays correctly — and if it does not, then you may return it for a full refund.

With our Used CDs, you can expect the disc to be free of all but the lightest of surface marks — clean, and not dirty at all. You can also expect the case to be clean (we often change the cases ourselves — putting fresh cases on Used CDs we handle) — and you can expect the booklet to be in good shape, unless noted otherwise. We will list any specific details/defects underneath the item — so look for notes on cutout marks in the case, stamps on the barcode, or details like that.

Wonderful live work from Joyce – a singer we love in any sort of setting, but one who really seems to open up nicely in front of an audience! The approach here is very much in classic Joyce mode – very intimate and personal, with instrumentation that just includes Joyce on guitar, ... CD


Music Inside
Verve, 1990. Used
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 ... CD

Certainly one of the best albums ever by this enigmatic Brazilian singer! Unlike some of her later records, which have a sound that's a bit weakly jazzy – this one draws from a rich portfolio of influences, and mixes them with Zizi's lively vocals in a style that's evocative of early work by ...

An ambitious mix of rootsy samba and soaring orchestrations – one of the strongest 70s albums by Clara Nunes, and set to arrangements by Francis Hime, Nelsinho, and Maestro Gaya! The record manages to sit on both sides of a sound with tremendous ease – never getting bogged down in its ... CD
