iTunes Review

Bebel Gilberto’s 2000 album teamed Brazilian musical royalty with visionary Serbian producer Suba to reinvent sambas and bossa novas for the new millennium. Breezy classics like “August Day Song” and “Sem Contencao” get fresh, mostly acoustic makeovers here, with subtle, airy electronic beats, while Gilberto’s breathy vocals lend the set a moody, wistful undercurrent. Languid, sexy, and sometimes dark, Tanto Tempo is the sound of Rio’s balmy beaches giving way to Sao Paulo’s dystopian futurism.

Customer Reviews

A great album

I bought this great album years ago on CD and never tire of it. Listening to Bebel Gilberto is like being transported to the sunny beaches of South America. Great to listen to when it's 20 degrees F and snowing outside - like right now. Her voice is soothing, smooth and sexy. All are favorites, but August Day Song, Tanto Tempo and Samba e Amor are standouts. Her cover of So Nice is fun and happy. Close Your Eyes will bring you straight to Carnivale! Buy the whole album and enjoy for years to come.

You're music library isn't complete without this album

On a bossa nova kick today, I've been downloading all sorts of Brazilian Jazz and I decided to revisit a favorite of mine.. Bebel Gilberto. I first heard of Gilberto in 2008 from a music bar in Miami, called Base. Little did I know how much her style would impact mine. When you listen to this album it's a sweet escape from mondane life. It's like taking a vacation. I actually can't believe that there are only 4 reviews for this debut. I'm actually quite shocked. If you haven't heard of Bebel Gilberto, you've been missing out. My advice is to buy as much of her music as you can and see her perform to make up for it. -Ben Sharkey (singer/songwriter/artist)
