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.”
