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

The tunes on this disc swing and sway just the way you would expect, but with a slight edge -- and the combination of techniques works very well indeed.
Bebel's voice is alternately soft, sexy, playful and wistful as she works her way through this set of tunes, most of which she had a hand in composing. Her voices -- overdubbing used to really nice effects -- swirl around the listener, pulling them into her world. This music, even while being upbeat in places, is overall very relaxing, but never uninteresting -- there's a lot going on here for the discerning listener to appreciate.
If you're looking for a fresh take on Brazilian samba, give this excellent disc a listen -- I don't think you'll be disappointed.
