Much of Joyce's work has been compared to the early boom of the jazz fusion scene, in the USA. She got her start in music by listening to her brother play the guitar, as well as listening to Ella Fitzgerald, Miles Davis and Billie Holiday for inspiration on emotions conveyed in music. Many people came into Joyce's house, and she easily got swept up in the music scene, having had in her childhood great encouragement in music. Joyce refers to her music as "MCB" (Creative Music of Brazil), rather than MPB. She has recorded many movie and TV soundtracks, and is creator and host of the music-infused television program "Cantos do Rio". She has also written a memoir, Fotografei Você na Minha Rolleyflex. In it, she discusses her experiences in the bossa nova and MPB movements, providing a fascinating portrait of fellow musicians, including João Gilberto. Joyce is married to drummer Tutty Moreno, who plays in her band.
Two of her daughters (Clara Moreno and Ana Martins) are also singers. Sites: Pt.Wikipedia Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
