Bebel Gilberto, Tanto Tempo
Label: Ziriguiboom / A-Train

Mixing Brazilian bossa nova with a light (very light) touch of downtempo electronica seems like an obvious idea now, but when Bebel Gilberto released her debut album in 2000 it felt incredibly fresh — so much so that this album became an international smash. Born of Brazilian music royalty (her dad is João Gilberto, her uncle Chico Buarque de Hollanda), Gilberto spent a good chunk of the ’90s traveling the US and Europe, working with… read more »

This is great music- I can sit and listen to it by myself, or play it at low volume at a dinner party. Beautiful, atmospheric. I don't know Portuguese, but I've never felt like I was missing anything.

Samba Soul Plus

By Richard Gehr, Contributor

Although it was devoted mostly to the music of samba-rocker Jorge Ben, a restive spirit seemed to haunt the funkiest (and, yes, freshest) concert I attended in 2008. The ghost of Brazilian soul legend Tim Maia — who lives on eMusic mostly in the form of tributes, remixes, and some awesome videos — yelped and grooved through the music of Brazil's latest crop of heavyweights during "Red Hot + Rio 2: The Next Generation of… more »

They Say All Music Guide

After working with artists like Caetano Veloso, David Byrne, and Towa Tei, Bebel Gilberto made her solo recording debut in the U.S. with Tanto Tempo, licensed for American release in 2000 by Six Degrees. It’s an album of stylish, cool, contemporary bossa nova, with Gilberto’s vocals a bit more assured and polished than Astrud Gilberto’s classic and similar recordings of the ’60s. The tone is restrained and subdued, simmering over the low heat of quiet passion; the instrumentation is mostly acoustic, although there are some unobtrusively electronic dance-club sounds as well. Overall, Tanto Tempo is a terrific, promising way for Gilberto to make her first impression as a solo artist. – Steve Huey
