Joyce - Hard Bossa (1999)
A couple of hours ago, an anonymous friend wrote this really overwhelming comment at the last Elizeth Cardoso – Momento de Amor (1968) release.”Zeca, I have been visiting your site for about 6 months now and have never left a comment because I was waiting for the right words to come…I guess I am not good with words. Let me say that your site has opened up a whole new musical universe for me. I have fell in love with so many artists. I can’t belief that before I visited your site I never knew about Dorival Caymmi, Maysa, Pery Ribeiro, Fafa Lemos, Tamba Trio, Os Ipanemas…(the list goes on and on). They are now all a part of me. I can’t thank you enough! And thank you for this wonderful Elizeth Cardoso album!”

I decided to make it public, just to say thanks to the so far unknown anonymous friend. Additionally, this statement makes me remember an artist that uses the same value proposition, almost a Bossa Nova warrior from the 21th Century. I’m talking about Joyce, she still recording Bossa Nova, creating new audience to Brazilian music all over the world.

This album is a perfect example, released by Far Out Recordings in 1999, brings the Bossa Nova message on title, creating passion with Brazilian music and our country. Let’s see.

This is Joyce – Hard Bossa (1999), for Far Out Recordings, the amazing UK label with several Brazilian artists in the cast that I urge Loronixers to visit their website and purchase their albums, which includes the last release by Arthur Verocai – Encore, featuring Azymuth and Ivan Lins. Far Out website is here. Hard Bossa has gone out of print and features Joyce recreating her “feminina” style, blending Jazz with Brazilian music, performed gently with the use of acoustic instruments. I did not have time to track down personnel listing, but the album is so good that as soon as possible someone will make it for us. Tracks include:

01 – Zoeira (Joyce / Paulo César Pinheiro)
02 – Quarup (Joyce / Paulo César Pinheiro)
03 – Criança (Joyce)
04 – Nome De Guerra (Joyce / Paulo César Pinheiro)
05 – London Samba (Joyce / Maurício Maestro)
06 – Todos Os Santos (Joyce / Paulo César Pinheiro)
07 – Juparana (Joyce / Paulo César Pinheiro)
08 – Novelo (Joyce / Paulo César Pinheiro)
09 – Hard Bossa (Joyce)
10 – Vatapá (Joyce / Léa Freire)

This is Joyce – Hard Bossa (1999), at Far Out. Hope uEnjoy!

Zeca, you are a marvel. This is one of my favourites, and comes with my favourite memory of my children spontaneously singing along to ‘Nome de Guerra’.

Here are the notes from the CD, complete with the small grammatical errors.

Do you want a scan of the booklet ?

Joyce – lead vocals, acoustic guuitar
Lula Galvao – acoustic, steel and electric guitar
Jorge Helder – acoustic bass
Tutty Moreno – drums and percussion

Carlos Malta – flute and saxophones
Vittor Santos – trombone,
trombone arrangement on ‘London Samba’.
Zero – percussion on ‘Nome de Guerra’ and ‘Vatapa”.
Mario Adnet – arrangement for
flutes and sax on ‘Hard Bossa’
Ana Martins – lead vocal on ‘Todos os Santos’, back-
ground vocals on ‘Nome de Guerra’ and ‘Vatapa’.
Paulo Cesar Pinheiro – lead vocals
on ‘Nome de Guerra’.
Hand clapping on ‘Nome de Guerra’ : Heloisa, Gabriel,
Claudio Anderson, Joe Davis, Joyce.

Joyce wishes to express her warmest thanks to the following:
All these marvellous musicians, without whom…needless to say more.
Joe Davis, for his support and love for this music.
Monica Ramos, for her precious help.
Rodolfo Stroeter, for bringing the right person to the right place.
Alberto, the extra musician.
Paulo Bellinati, for the guitar and friendship.
Gerald Seligman for “hard bossa”
Paulinho Pinheiro, for poetry and vibes.
Aninha, Mariana, Tomaz, Clarinha, Kadi, meus amores.
Tutty forever.
All our friends from London, for music and joy; the city that keeps on
swinging; and everybody at the Jazz Cafe.

best wishes,

Joyce was quite successful in “creating new audience to Brazilian music all over the world” by me, if i consider the fact, that this LP was my first Bossa Nova LP (bought in Munich, Germany), and now i have almost one hundred Brazilian LPs in Budapest, Hungary 🙂
So I’m happy to see this album here too, and thanks for all of the wonderful albums that You have posted!

I was going to provide the personnel list, but the friend who signed and_lin has already done it. Anyway, this is one of those albums from Joyce that have never been released in Brazil. The others I want to mention are: Live at the Mojo Club (Hamburg, Germany) and Delírios de Orfeu (Japan). Besides these there are two others that had only LP issues in Brazil, but have been released as CD`s in Japan: Tardes Cariocas (82) and Saudades do Futuro (86). All of them are albums that should not be left aside by a blog like this. As always, congratulations for the great (really great) work. Wilson Libutti, Santos, SP.

Other great Joyce albums that would be a natural for Loronix include Feminina and Agua e Luz, both from the early ’80s. Tardes Cariocas, with Egberto Gismonti and Ney Matogrosso, would also be good, as the CD release omits one song and totally changes the order of the others. I have it in both vinyl and CD.

I saw Joyce in Berlin, Germany three weeks ago in a small Jazz Club.

Sometime at the concert she said to her musicians “Sorry guys, I have to change the programme” and then she played Jobim’s “Aguas de marco” solo, because she wanted to honor “the greatest brasilian composer, who would have become eighty years old this year”.

My favorite Joyce album is “Delirios de orfeu”.
