If you’re a fan of Brazilian music, you’ll immediately recognize more than a few giants on Far Out Recordings’ incredible roster, and this week, we’re featuring one of them: Joyce Moreno. Her latest effort, Cool, is a much anticipated collection of standards from the classic American songbook, reimagined and reinvigorated with her singular style and voice. Cool is one of our Albums of the Week this week, and we’re is really stoked to welcome her and Far Out to Earbits.

 

Take a listen here. I’m really into her to her languid, beautifully restrained take on Monk’s classic “‘Round Midnight,” and her bubbly Samba rework of Cole Porter’s “Let’s Do It.”

 

Cool is an Album of the Week this week and will be in our “New On…” section for the next month. Don’t forget to keep an eye out for her in the Discovery section as well. I’m cooking up a few new playlists with her in mind. Don’t forget: when you come across her music, follow Joyce and Far Out on Facebook to keep up with their latest news, and smash that purchase link at the top right corner of your Earbits screen to buy the record and support her amazing work!

 

You can read more about Joyce remarkable 50 year career and the making of Cool at Far Out’s website.
