The Independent Culture

Classy, entirely successful collection of newly recorded material by Brazilian singer/guitarist/ composer Joyce (here using her married name of Moreno: husband Tutty plays drums) and the famous bossa nova pianist and composer Joao Donato.

It's subtle, light-as-a-feather stuff, characterised by the signature styles of Donato's cooing flute and horn arrangements and Joyce's airy singing. The 13 tunes include versions of Joyce's breakthrough song "Feminina", and Donato's classic "Amazonas".
