Parisian Bossa Nova Duo Tom & Joy to Release Antigua
Published August 16, 2005

Yellow Productions Recording and Tommy Boy Entertainment have slated October 18th as the release date for Antigua, by the Parisian duo Tom (Thomas Naim) and Joy (Joyce Hozé-Liwer). The CD is described by the label as “a beautifully fragrant cocktail—equal parts bossa nova, Afrobeat and jazz with a splash of French chanson. The duo, accompanied by a band of five musicians (drummer, bassist, keyboardist, sax player and trumpeter) has delivered a sophisticated, multi-lingual (French, Portuguese, Spanish, English) album of songs which evoke soothing, welcome images of balmy beaches, Parisian cafes, and breezy summer Sunday afternoons zipping around town on a scooter.”

Antigua opens with “Meditation,” originally written by Antonio Carlos Jobim and later adapted and sung by Claudine Longet in the late ’60s. It then moves on to the Portuguese “Imagina.” The title song, “Antigua,” features legendary Afrobeat drummer Tony Allen (who worked for many years with Fela Kuti). Afro-rhythms also surface in “Jamaica” and “Kadia.” “Be Mine” and “Out Of My Mind” hover between jazz and pop funk while the duo’s love for bossa nova is in evidence on “Esquiesse,” “Celibridade” and “Lluvia,” a song written and sung in Spanish.

Antigua is the third album to be released via the Yellow Productions Recording (France)/Tommy Boy Entertainment (NYC) deal. Previously released are Africanism III by the Africanism Allstars and Brasil by Salomé de Bahia. Yellow Productions is owned by Parisian jet-set DJ and producer Bob Sinclar.
