Album artwork for Feminina by Joyce and Mauricio Maestro

INDIE EXCLUSIVE, RSD UK APRIL RELEASE.

This fabled 11-minute+ version of Brazilian icon Joyce's groundbreaking "Feminina" was recorded at Columbia Studios, New York in 1977, for the as yet unreleased Natureza album. Produced, arranged, and conducted by the great Claus Ogerman (Frank Sinatra, Antonio Carlos Jobim, Billie Holiday... the list goes on), Natureza would have ostensibly been Joyce's big break to international stardom, but mysteriously it was never released. With Joyce came fellow Brazilian icons Mauricio Maestro, Nana Vasconcelos, and Tutty Moreno, and Ogerman employed North American jazz legends Joe Farrell, Michael Brecker, Buster Williams, and Mike Manieri. This astonishing version of a true classic gets its first proper 12" release. Rather than make it a single-sided 12", Far Out called up Joyce to talk about the recording, recorded the conversation, and pressed it to vinyl on the B side.
