The Rewind No 24: Joyce with Nana Vasconcelos and Mauricio Maestro – Visions of Dawn

Joyce with Nana Vasconcelos and Mauricio Maestro: Visions of Dawn

Visions of Dawn’ is the original ‘lost’ Brazilian acid-folk album recorded in Paris in 1976. This stunning, previously unreleased project by three Brazilian music legends, unearthed by Joe Davis (Far Out Recordings) back in 2009. Led by the sharp lyrics and gorgeous, expressive voice and guitar of Joyce the trio is completed by the expert musicianship of her close friends Nana Vasconcelos (percussion) and Mauricio Maestro (electric bass, vocals, guitar and producer) who were both crucial in creating this masterpiece. These beautiful, hazy and understated recordings, which took place in the charming artistic 1970s Paris scene, offer a unique chance to sit in on the original jamming sessions of tracks that later became Brazilian cult classics. With Andy Votel’s stunning psychedelic designs dripping from the cover, the Paris 1976 project is utterly essential. Stream below.
