about

Joyce combines her wonderfully expressive swoop and soar vocal with special guest bossa legend Joao Donato’s peerless pulsating piano and warmly-crafted rhythms. Injecting pure-quality jazz into bossa nova, old-school Brazilian samba and laid back Cuban vibes, ‘Aquarius’ is intricate yet endlessly listenable. Blending breezy ease and elegant sophistication with Donato’s unique stop/start groove this is a special roots session that sounds utterly fresh. Featuring true classics alongside stunning new compositions this gorgeous recording is testament to Joyce’s standing as Brazil’s greatest female singer-songwriter & celebrated international artist.

Reviews
Classy and Entirely successful collection Independent (Outstanding *****)

A splendid new offering…utterly delightful Record Collector ****

Radiates a funky 70s spirit while still sounding brand-spankingly modern...compelling Songlines ****

Joyce sounds as warm, natural and engaging as Ella Fitzgerald BBC Music

Joyce is a Brazilian treasure ... unfailingly upbeat...great example of Joyce’s versatily Downbeat Magazine

Two legends come together and make beautiful music. Basically, if you love Brazillian music then you cannot do without this CD. It’s just 100% beautiful, passionate and groovy music, the way it should be and the way we love it. A no-brainer - Essential purchase. Blues & Soul Magazine

One of Brazil’s most successful female singers. Aquarius radiates a modern version of the funky spirit of 70s era Brazilian jazz National Geographic

Joyce’s breezy vocals & Donato‘s pulsating rhythms drive Today's Top Tune KCRW.com

Donato’s piano and the voice of Joyce is reason enough to give this a good listen Jungle Drums

The rapport between Moreno & Donato shines through on this joyful album. Properganda

Gorgeously performed and produced ... perfect Soul Survivors Magazine

A great Cuban feel, a great voice and a very relaxing collection of tracks.
Joe Haddow BBC Radio 2 (Producer Chris Evans Show)

A sublime piece of music. It hasn´t left my stereo since I got it. I totally dig it. Original authentic music from 2 masters. Rainer Trüby

My favorite Joyce album Dick Hovenga (Jazz Magazine / Written in Music)
