Bebel Gilberto - Tanto Tempo - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

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. --Rickey Wright

...The coolest, gentlest Bossa Nova, the most soothing voices, the greatest production, the most fantastic Brazilian tunes, old and new, - and you have Tanto Tempo and the wonderful Bebel Gilberto.
Bebel's step-mum is Astrud Gilberto (of Girl From Ipanema fame) her father is one of Brazil's most celebrated musicians, the girl has pedigree and boy does it show. The producer of much of the album is the legendary Suba (sadly no longer with us).
If you like chill-out music or latin or smooth laid back jazz you will love this - honestly one of the greatest albums of its the genre ever, possibly the best summer album ever. BUY IT, BUY IT, BUY IT!!...
Ok, enough evangelising....but honestly it is that good.
p.s. once you're into this...try "Sao Paolo Confessions" by Suba, anything by Smoke City, "Gemini" by Sven Van Hees, the last two albums by Silje Neergarde, Outro Lado by Zuco 103 and the Tanto Tempo remixes album, "Tributo" the Suba tribute album....all very cool.

In my opinion this is the best album of 2000 which heralds the arrival of a major compositional talent as well as a beautiful and sensitive performer in Bebel Gilberto. We have found it to be an absolutely addictive mix of authenticity, beauty, gentleness and soul. It is great that Bebel fearlessly performs such beautiful old songs as So Nice, which will hopefully capture the hearts of a new generation. It is wonderful that such a great artist is focussed on creating beauty and gentleness (such a rare commodity these days) by exploring a style which has so many treasures to offer rather than to seek after shallow novelty and effect. Standout songs are Samba da Bencao, August Day Song, Tanto Tempo, Sem Contencao and So Nice. This is just magnificent and I am anxiously (and greedily!) waiting for the next installment of Bebel's exploration.
P.S. I actually prefer Bebel's singing to Astrud.

This album had been touted as the modern (funked-up) version of traditionally recognised Brazillian rhythms, but thankfully, this is nothing too funky, but instead a respectful update of the mellow bossa sound for todays chill-out crowd.
Yes, she's the daughter of Daddy, and nothing here will offend his ears. The songs are a mix of a couple of old favourites and some well-structured new ones that Antonio Carlos Jobim wouldn't be embarrased to be associated with. There is still an acoustic, guitar-led heart to many of the songs, but with some groovy young chill-out/trip-hop people adding some rhythmic and sonic layers for a blissed-out gloss. Smoke City lend a hand on one of the tracks, but most of the production duties are handled by the late Suba.His own release(Sao Paulo confessions) also dealt with bossa and samba groves, but he was much more ambitious with the modern possibilities to really show a new direction for this stream of Brazilian music. Tanto Tempo, on the other hand, stays on the safe side of the fence. Thankfully, most of the vocals are in Portuguese which adds to the authenticity of the music. Where she does go into English (So nice), she reminds us of her step-mom, Astrid, but Bebel posesses the stronger and more confident voice.
Bebel has recently turned up on the latest Thievery Corporation album, and fans of TC will not be disappointed by Tanto Tempo.
Cool and warm. File under 'jazz/lounge'

In terms of pure style, this CD is great - cool, sexy, relaxing, it creates a mood that only this genre of Brazilian bossa nova can. Bebel has a good voice, and the production is crisp and has a good balance of pace and texture - you can't really fault it on those grounds. The sound of Bebel's Brazilian Portuguese is a pleasure to listen to. However, if, like me, you were brought up on Astrud Gilberto, Stan Getz, Elis Regina etc., what this CD lacks is any really great tunes. By two thirds of the way through, the cool starts to wear a bit thin as one starts to wonder where this CD is going. What was truly great about Astrud was that every song she sang was a classic - one rather forgave her breathy, out-of-tune singing because it all blended into the easy-going feel of the music, elevated by typically stunning impresario performances by the likes of Getz on the Saxophone. Bebel's work seems to lack any particularly special instrumental performances - the snippets of saxophone (?) heard on some tracks are stylised and processed, rather than genuine performances and this CD becomes a pastiche of an older, better latin jazz, where (so typical in music these days) style, production and mood dominate over melody and harmony.
This will be a great CD to put on as background music at a cocktail party or some such, but as listening music, there is something a bit lacking.

When I first bought this I was a little disapointed, pleasant enough but it seemed to lack the strong songs / identity that characterised Astrud Gilberto and the other Bossa Nova pioneers.
However, I stuck it in the car CD player and as a result listened to it fairly frequently. Now I love it! The subtilty of the songs and arrangements takes time to make its mark but now I'm hooked. Bebel is a classic Bossa Nova singer but the more contemporary arrangements mean that this is no period piece.
