‘Samba Jazz & Outras Bossas’ features a mix of five samba-jazz classics plus eight new Joyce compositions. Covers include a scorching version of Tenorio Jr’s ‘Embalo’ featuring incredible horns soloing from Nailor Proveta (alto sax, arrangement), Teco Cardoso (baritone sax), Vittor Santos (trombone) & Jessé Sadoc (trumpet), plus a sublime version of the Baden/Vinicius classic ‘Berimbau’ with stellar playing from Helio Alves who’s key-work seems to lift the tune up to the heavens. There are also interpretations of ‘April Child’ originally written by Moacir Santos/ R.Evans / J.Livingston, a fantastically uplifting version of ‘Devagar Com A Louça’ composed by Luiz Reis and Haroldo Barbosa and that was originally a big hit for Elza Soares in the 1950s, plus a new version of ‘Mágica’, a bona-fide samba-jazz and Joyce classic here in a wonderful new version with regal sax playing from Teco Cardoso, Henrique Band & Nailor Proveta who also contributes some majestic clarinet work.

Highlights amongst the new
Joyce compositions are ‘Penalty’, a classic ‘Feminina’ style bossa featuring a heavy Joyce scat; a wonderful mid-tempo bossa in ode to song-writers everywhere called ‘Compositor’; ‘Shangri-La’, a tribute to 'Tereza My Love', one of Joyce’s favourite Tom Jobim ballads; and ‘Tema Pro Baden’, a bossa in 7/8 that pays tribute to Baden Powell, who Joyce refers to as a ‘a creator in the Brazilian school of guitar’
