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

Her last album ' momento' was a disappointment for me personally, but I had a sigh of relief when I first listened to her new album. It is so much better and this is a wonderful relaxing album with some great up tempo songs as well. The piano is back again sometimes, and so are the lazy beach type songs. So it comes more into the direction of her second album - great variation of songs and an overall feel good album you can play at dinner parties or just relaxing after a hard day's work, it will bring you into a different world, one of sunshine. This album is coming close to her second album and deserves a 5 star for me since I know I will be playing it again and again. Great album !

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.

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.

Don't really need to add anything to the main review which I think is quite fair but I'll put my pounds worth in... The 5* reviewer must be a die-hard fan and will revel in just about anything Bebel puts out? Well, I actually think memento was overall a better outing, once you get used to the intrusive electronic blips and squeeks. With this album, I think that she has been led astray with the cover songs entirely and they seem completely out of place amongst those Bebel signature songs. Its good to explore but in doing so the album has no cohesion, no central flow or continual appeal. I find that you breathe a sigh of relief once the hot-sun-through-the-white-voile songs return. So, take the covers out and you're left with another good set. How will Bebel explore? Maybe she should take control of that ??

I love Bebel's music and I love this CD. Its very mellow and relaxing to listen to, and reminds me of far off exotic places
