November 05, 2005 Rough Guides presents Joyce & Dori Caymmi -Brazilian -Jazz -CD Release 7:30pm & 10pm - Admission $30 in advance/$35 at the door - advance tickets on sale at Smarttix.
Described by Antonio Carlos Jobim as one of the greatest singers of all time", singer, composer and guitarist Joyce is one of the most revered of Brazilian artists, not only in her own country, but on the international stage. A sophisticated urbanite whose personal musical style was nurtured in Rio’s fertile samba scene and influenced by the jazz sounds of Ella, Miles and Monk, Joyce’s sound has never strayed far from these influences, mellifluously combining Brazilian rhythms, jazz harmonies and intelligent lyrics through a beautiful expressive voice. Joyce’s last studio recording, ‘A Little Bit Crazy’ found her exploring new sounds and grooves with the help of European electronic wiz Bugge Wesseltoft. Her new recording however, sees her returning to a style which she describes simply as “more classic… more Brazilian”. The starting point for this new recording came not from her desire to record a classic album, but from her desire to work with a man who she describes as a “true classic”. For Joyce, this is the man “from whom I learned so much”; composer, “dream arranger”, singer, guitarist and friend, Dori Caymmi. Dori is the son of the great Brazilian composer Dorival Caymmi. Respected in his own right, Dori Caymmi has many awards to his credit, and has worked with dozens of great jazz artists, from Quincy Jones to Sarah Vaughan, and with Claus Ogerman co-wrote some of the most important arrangements for Antonio Carlos Jobim. It is with Dori as string arranger and singer, that Joyce presents her new recording for London-based label Far Out, Rio Bahia, and arrives at Satalla for four shows on November 5 & 6.
