about

“In the summer of 2010, I was invited by the city of Rio to present a solo show on Ipanema beach. It was intended as a sort of luau for people leaving the beach, with just voice and guitar. I threw a sundress over my swimsuit, flip-flops on my feet, coconut water within easy reach, and there I was.

The sea of people, both locals and tourists, on the sand; the presence of friends who, like me, grew up on that stretch of beach; giving joy to so many made the show one of the happiest I’d ever given. Seeing all those people singing with me the city’s anthem, “Cidade Maravilhosa,” was priceless. This CD was born when the sun sank behind the Dois Irmãos hill, and the crowd applauded as we had done so many years ago. A crowd that applauds a simple sunset must be very good folk. Rio—the mountain, the sun and the sea—where I make my samba simply.” JOYCE, 2011
Joyce’s seventh original recording for Far Out – ‘Rio’ – combines Joyce’s Brazilian rhythms (partido alto to samba), jazz and bossa harmonies and intelligent lyrics through her beautifully expressive voice on special original compositions – new and old – alongside unique versions of classic Brazilian songs from greats including Tom Jobim, Caetano Veloso. A wonderful mood floats through fifteen tracks to recreate the special atmosphere of the ‘Rio’ show.

Reviews
“A samba psycho-geography of sorts, cherry picking vintage songs, faces and places, and moments-in-time that chart her personal relationship with Brazil’s terminally iconic city-by-the-sea" Songlines ****

“A great listen…nice to hear some good old bossa without layers of unnecessary backing!” Michael Rossi (Producer Late Junction, BBC Radio 3)

“Joyce's music allows you to float away to sunnier climes!” Globetronica (Pathaan)

“Joyce is the best musician among the women singers who came after Elis Regina” Caetano Veloso – O Globo - 2012
