Product Description

Product Description

Japanese Version featuring Three Bonus Tracks: 'so Nice' (Summer Samba -remix), 'sem Contencao' (Remix) and 'sem Contencao' (Brasil 2mil Version). Includes Music Written by Amon Tobin, Arling and Cameron and Suba. Produced by Suba.


Daughter of the famed Brazilian pop and bossa nova singer João Gilberto, Bebel recalls her father's own classic recordings on Tanto Tempo, with a sure sense of pitch. Bebel Gilberto is hardly less charming for that, though, and the album entices with hushed passion. Relying mostly on acoustic instruments and some muted orchestrations, Tanto Tempo is nonetheless smartly paced to allow for some tasteful dance-club electronics to augment a few tracks, and ends on a celebratory note with "Close Your Eyes"--all but an invitation to Carnival. The current trend for things Brazilian should assure this disc a deservedly wide audience. Licensing it for the U.S. is another minor triumph for the fine San Francisco-based label Six Degrees. --Rickey Wright

5.0 out of 5 stars Tanto Temptress March 12 2004
Format:Audio CD
There is a certain kind of mid- to late-summer day that is characterized by hazy sunshine, warm, languid breezes that seem to carry a whiff of the salty sea and cool, mellow music playing somewhere in the background on a radio. That music has got to be "Tanto Tempo," the official soundtrack of lazy summer afternoons. Bebel Gilberto brings a somewhat more modern sensibility to the samba sounds of her legendary father, Joao Gilberto, but she is no heretic. "Tanto Tempo" is not a tricked up, "pop-ified" version of Brazilian music. It's authentic. But this is the sound of the new samba generation, and it's as bracing and refreshing as a cocktail on the beach. Put this disc on when you have friends over for a summer picnic or an evening martini mixer. I guarantee that by the time the evening is over everyone will have asked you "who is this on the stereo?" and you will have helped Bebel sell a few more copies of this terrific work.

5.0 out of 5 stars great neo bossa nova from a great gene pool Sept. 10 2003
Format:Audio CD
this is a great cd to track the evolution of bossa nova and keeping it alive with fusion of new sounds.... and who better than to do it than Gilberto? just to clear some of the reviews up (most of which i completely agree with).... but Bebel is NOT the daughter if Astrud Gilberto, she is the daughter of Joao Gilberto's other wife, Miucha.... who also is a great vocalist and recorded some great bossa nova and MPB... she also came out with a record with her husband and stan getz in america (as Astrud did and is probably best known for in america)... "The best of two worlds"..... this would also make Bebel the niece of famous brazilian musician Chico Buarque and the grand daughter of well-known Brazilian historian Sergio Buarque de Hollanda..... put all of this together and it just keeps on going with Bebel now center stage...

5.0 out of 5 stars Bossa Nova coolness June 19 2003
Format:Audio CD
Bebel Gilberto, daugher of legendary Jao Gilberto, introduced herself in the US with her premier Tanto Tempo. If you enjoy the classic bossa nova artists such as Antonio Carlos Jobim, then you will definitely love this cd. It is a simulacrum of classic bossa nova but with a contemporary feel to it. The cd also includes the classic 'So Nice'. Listen to this cd and drink a nice mocha. The cd Tanto Tempo and coffee seem to be a nice mix.

4.0 out of 5 stars Close your eyes Dec 20 2003
Format:Audio CD
I bought "Tanto Tempo" a couple of years ago because I was looking to expand my musical horizons. At the time I was curious to hear what bossa nova was all about so I bought the Bebel Gilberto cd online. I haven't listened to the cd in eons since my musical tastes is constantly changing. On a whim I decided to listen to "Tanto Tempo" recently. For some odd reason, Bebel Gilberto reminds me of last year's break out artist Norah Jones. Her voice is very subtle and never overwhelming (see Celine Dion). The music is very mellow and relaxing to listen to, the perfect soundtrack to hot summer day when all you want to do is lay in the shade and relax with a tall glass of iced tea. Obviously Bebel had to have some influence from her famous father Joao Gilberto, a well known Brazilian guitarist (another similarity to Norah Jones, both have famous fathers). The opening tracks on "Tanto Tempo" really stood out with me. The mellow music and Bebel's gentle vocals totally matched well together and didn't overtake one another. When I first listened to "Tanto Tempo", I really couldn't get into the cd but now that I have been listening to a lot of chill out music, I find myself enjoying Bebel Gilberto's music much more than a couple of years ago. The perfect music to listen to on a lazy Sunday morning while reading the newspaper and drinking a glass of orange juice or a hot steaming cup of coffee.

4.0 out of 5 stars Samba e Amor. Dec 17 2003
Format:Audio CD
To be honest, I'm not really sure how I ended up with this album. It was certainly not something I sought out on its own, despite limited familiarity and unlimited love for her father João's classic sixties recordings, but when I saw it in the catalogue at my school's library, I decided to check it out.
December in New York City. The sun sets at four thirty. Days old snow still sits on the ground, now blackened by the relentlessness of The City That Never Sleeps. A single gust of wind feels as if it could cut your face like the unwatchable papercut scene in "Jackass: The Movie." But you have headphones. You have "Tanto Tempo." And you have forty minutes to listen.
Honestly, I feel a bit guilty enjoying this as much as I do. Under different circumstances, I would not hesitate to call it "elevator music." But sometimes I like elevator music. Bebel's soporific voice sings in English on only three tracks, so I have to rely on the song titles (most in English, those not easily translated on any number of websites, resulting in: "Without Containment," "Happier," and "Banana Tree") and the sounds themselves to get the message across. What she is basically saying is, I've decided: "It is definitely not winter, and I am definitely not in New York."
Bebel flirts with electronica, using herself, Thievery Corporation, Amon Tobin, and Suba as producers, but this is far from an electronica album -- and that's a good thing. It is steeped in that which came before, but may also become an accurate glimpse of what might come next.
Overall, Bebel has crafted a fairly solid album.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and conservative
A generally dull album : dark and confused sound quality, very conservative, second hand compositions, unispired singing.

Bebel is a marvelous tribute to her parents. Her voice is sweeter than Astrud's. Her style is retro enough to be classic. Read more
