Biography

Bebel Gilberto is in love. And the warmth and sweetness of that newfound romance can be felt throughout All In One, her seductive debut for Verve.“I am really loved. I’m getting married. My future husband was also the sound engineer and executive producer, and he helped me a lot,” says the New York-born Brazilian vocalist. “I believe being loved helps a lot when ...

BBC Review

You might imagine that signing to Verve, a label synonymous with jazz legends, would have encouraged Bebel Gilberto to explore the more extreme end of her illustrious Brazilian heritage.

Not so. Here the daughter of bossa nova creator João Gilberto has made an album that either drowns in its own sensuousness and sentimentality – “Bebel Gilberto is in love,” fanfares the press release – or stutters awkwardly in a self-conscious striving for broader populism.

There’s nothing wrong with a bit of romance, of course – love does make the world go round apparently – but once you become attuned to the sashaying allure of opening track Canção de Amor, with its desultory whistle, and marvel again at a voice of such persuasive intimacy that you’d run round Rio in a clown outfit if it asked nicely, the album is kidnapped by a faux-poppiness, insidiously plodding arrangements and a dull sheen that her producers presumably see as the key to greater glories. Instead it robs Gilberto of her floaty magic and deadens the impact whenever those Brazilian rhythms are unleashed. One of these producers is Mark Ronson, who’s done wonderful things with Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen, but his attempts to apply a sharp, clubby edge to Stevie Wonder’s The Real Thing merely makes her sound like a sad renegade from a 1970s disco.

Other attempts to broaden her range don’t fare much better. A bilingual chill-out treatment of Bob Marley’s Sun Is Shining is strangled by an ugly drum rhythm, some ill-advised computer effects and a heavy-handed funky bass line, while the original material tends to sink into background music and fails to wield the emotional clout she clearly intends.

There’s some salvation in her spritely revision of her father’s song Bim Bom, featuring Daniel Jobim – Antonio Carlos Jobim’s grandson – and the joyous sense of mischief conveyed by Carlinhos Brown’s incorrigibly rhythmic arrangement of Chica Chica Boom Chic. But these are isolated moments, insufficient to ignite the rest of the album. Operating in a similar field, CéU’s Vagarosa album knits new styles into a rich Brazilian heritage far more convincingly. --Colin Irwin

Until I listened to this album I wouldn't have believed that Bebel Gilberto could make a dud recording. I am a huge fan of her first three albums, listen to them constantly and am continually blown away by her sheer inventiveness in the bossa nova/electronica genre. On All in One she seems to have been kidnapped by the bad taste police - even her dress makes her look like a poor Cuban girl celebrating her quinze in her grandmother's outfit rather than the Rio/New York diva that she is.

There are four songs that just about hold the album together - her covers of her father's playful Bim Bom and the classic Chica Chica Boom Chic are as well executed as one would expect, and her version of Bob Marley's Sun in Shining breathes some unexpected life into that reggae classic. The lovely and unusual chord progression on Far from the Sea and its poetic lyrics are well suited to her vocal style. The work of two relatively unknown (outside Brazil) composers from Minas Gerais, the sensitive string arrangement and sparse percussion and bass on this song make Bebel sound like a bossa nova Nick Drake - it's sublime.

The other tracks are just short of disastrous despite hosting the usual stellar cast of musicians and producers - making the unwelcome but perhaps inevitable foray into muzak territory. Many of them were recorded in Bahia - which has produced its fair share of musical superstars but is also home to some of the worst music in Brazil (most of which thankfully is never heard outside Brazil).

Mark Ronson is drafted in to work some Winehouse-esque retro magic on a cover of Stevie Wonder's The Real Thing - and unfortunately the production just shows up the limitations of Gilberto's vocal technique - she's no soul diva.

Very odd, but my opinion of this album seems to be the polar opposite of the featured review - I cannot decide which of all these tracks I like best, but it would be a final choice between `Sun is Shining' or `The Real Thing' as bona fide chill out classics, and then there is The Secret. . .

BTW, why on earth should Bebel Gilberto plunge into an `extreme end' of anything? Professional critics of a certain hue have not got a hard day job and have not grown out of their adolescent exclusiveness and so, like the good commissars they are, they are suspicious of the concept of people just wanting to make relaxing, escapist music. Life on Terra Firma, with its appalling tragedies, frequent ghastly tedium and one hundred per cent mortality rate is `extreme end' enough as it is.

And I would definitely make a special mention of the penultimate track 'Secret (Segredo)'. Mr Critic missed out on that one, it could start a whole new genre -`Sinister Bossa'; good timing too- I think I will put this one on the Halloween Mix.

I do agree with the other contributor here who thought that `Memento' was something of a letdown, but this one is definitely back on target. I would love to see BG attempt an entire album with the feel of the three tracks I have mentioned here. But as long as the next one is sunny, sensuous etc, you know, RELAXING, I am sure that it will do just fine.

Having waited a while for this album to be released I must say that I am dissapointed. I liked her 2004 'Bebel Gilberto' album and was expecting a more musically mature sound.

The main problem is that when she sings in English it changes the pace of her songs and some even go out of tune! I believe its a problem she has had in previous albums. Having said that the Brazilian language songs are good and the album is worth buying just for 'bim bom' and 'chica chica boom chic'.

The whole album is growing on me, but I wish she would sing in her native language only.

A nice album for background music.
