This tour marks the 50th anniversary of Joyce´s first album, back in 1968. She is currently recording a remake of that album with many guest artists and friends. It’s being produced by Biscoito Fino, currently the best Brazilian label for creative music.
“…One of the greatest singers of all times!… As if it weren’t enough, Joyce is a great composer and plays ace guitar! What an amazing woman!” — Antonio Carlos Jobim, 1987.
“Brazilian composer, guitarist and singer Joyce is a young lady who can only be described as a genius” - Claus Ogerman, 1999
“Joyce is a Brazilian treasure” — DownBeat magazine, USA, 2010.
„These days, she occupies a status something like that of Joni Mitchell, a matriarch who paved the way for other women (…) while influencing a generation with her jazz-steeped songs. „ - Andrew Gilbert -East Bay Express, 2010
„ Her musical capacity surprised me when, years later, she reemerged playing guitar like the best (in the land of João Gilberto, Dori [Caymmi], [Gilberto] Gil, and João Bosco, this is not a bagatelle), her singing precisely tuned, writing songs with original harmonic and melodic imagination.“ Caetano Veloso - 2011
„ Her voice has grown deeper and richer, its chestnut luster as radiant as ever“ Christopher Loudon, Jazztimes, 2016
