Product Description


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 Better than Mother! Aug. 6 2003
Format:Audio CD
Bebel is a marvelous tribute to her parents. Her voice is sweeter than Astrud's. Her style is retro enough to be classic. If you like Bebel don't overlook Isabelle Antena- L' Alphabet du Plaisir.
This is a sexy, beautiful, relaxing album. Highly recommended!

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars Boring and conservative April 4 2010
Format:Audio CD
A generally dull album : dark and confused sound quality, very conservative, second hand compositions, unispired singing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect background July 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
I agree with what many previous writers have alluded to: put on Bebel Gilberto's "Tanto Tempo" as the background at any gathering and - before the CD is through - everyone will have asked you what you're playing. The music is infectious and Bebel's voice is lilting, silky and sensuous, a feeling that comes across in either Portuguese or English (the sounds are a mixture of each - sometimes dividing choruses between the two like in the wonderful "August Day Song"). In fact, you'll probably get hooked by the most approachable songs, like the English language "So Nice (Summer Samba)" but then learn to love the Portuguese-penned tunes as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bebel - an unexpected surprise Jan. 6 2004
Format:Audio CD
As a practitioner of the Latin arts, Bebel Gilberto shines.
I first heard her coming through the stereo one summer's afternoon in a small wine bar overlooking the bay.
There's something about the beach, summer and Latin music - it's as though they are part of the same sensuous experience. I had never heard of Bebel Gilberto before (although I knew of her famous father) but I was hooked.
On Tanto Tempo, she recasts the spell of a bygone era with simplicity, elegance and style.
She rediscovers and reinterprets her Brazilian roots with freshness and a new millennium feel.
But yet there's also something familiar and reassuring here - the samba of the 60s with its gentle, romantic nuances and its soft Latin undercurrents.
Tanto Tempo proves that sometimes the more things change the more they remain the same.
FIVE STARS for this beautiful and totally unexpected set.
