Born in Rio de Janeiro, four-time Grammy nominee, singer, composer, arranger and instrumentalist Joyce Moreno has over 400 recordings of songs she authored and interpreted from the greatest names in Brazilian popular music—from Elis Regina and Gal Costa to Milton Nascimento, Sergio Mendes, and countless others. Beyond Brazil, Moreno’s work has been recorded by Annie Lennox, Wallace Roney, Omara Portuondo, Black Eyed Peas, David Sanchez, Jon Lucien, Claus Ogerman, Gerry Mulligan, Till Brönner and Flora Purim, to name a few.
Moreno’s compositions have been featured in film soundtracks such as The Player by Robert Altman and Legally Blonde by Robert Luketic, Japanese anime Wolf’s Rain, in partnership with composer Yoko Kanno, TV programmes and theatrical productions. Her music was embraced by DJs all over the world in the early ‘90s, when her track Aldeia de Ogum became a massive worldwide dancefloor hit, with numerous remixes.
Moreno is best known for pioneering first-person, feminine voice in Brazilian music which paved the way for countless other artists. She received four nominations at the Latin Grammys in 2000, 2004, 2005 and 2010, and numerous awards, worldwide and in Brazil. To date, she has released 39 personal CDs and two DVDs, in addition to numerous compilations and guest appearances. Her album recordings and annual tours including the Japanese Blue Note circuit take her all over the world but she never forgets her feminine Brazilian identity.
In 2015, her musical work was honoured in Joyce Meets Berklee—a concert where she performed with a 25-piece orchestra at Berklee College of Music.
Tutty Moreno (Drums)
Born in Salvador, Bahia, Tutty Moreno started his career at the early age of 13, playing the trumpet and alto sax, before moving on to the drums at 16. Having played professionally for more than 30 years, Moreno has come into his own style and musical language.
Moreno first made waves in ‘70s. Since then, he has been incessantly involved in tours and recordings with some of the most important Brazilian artists such as Caetano Veloso, Gilberto Gil, Gal Costa, Maria Bethania, Joyce, João Donato, Dori Caymmi and many others. He has also played with legendary American jazz musicians including Walter Booker, Jim Hall and Ernie Watts.
His first solo CD Tocando, Sentindo, Suando - Tutty Moreno and Friends was released in 1996 in Europe and Japan, by London label Far Out Recordings. In 1998, his second solo release, Forças D’Alma was praised by critics all over the country, and was subsequently released in the US by American label Malandro Records in 2000. In 2001, the Tutty Moreno quartet performed at the Chivas Jazz Festival and was touted by the Brazilian press as “the most amazing surprise of the festival”.
Nonada, an all-star album featuring Tutty Moreno, André Mehmari, Rodolfo Stroeter, Nailor Proveta and Teco Cardoso was nominated for Best Jazz Album at the 2009 Latin Grammy Awards.
