Overview

The daughter of guitarist João Gilberto, bossa nova's architect, and the niece of Brazilian music's poet laureate, Chico Buarque, Bebel Gilberto is certainly steeped in her native country's rich, body-moving musical traditions. But, as she proved on her breezy, groove-filled debut, Tanto Tempo, she's also willing to push the envelope. While Tanto Tempo found Gilberto collaborating with contemporary dance-savvy producers such as Thievery Corporation, Suba, Arto Lindsay, and Towa Tei of Deee-Lite, for this platter of remixes, she handed over the album's existing tracks to a world clique of knob-twiddlers, including Germany's Peter Kruder, Britain's 4 Hero, Tokyo's Chari Chari, and Philadelphia's King Britt. The results are as breezy and groovy as the original album but cast a spotlight on the beats buoying her lighter-than-air English and Portuguese vocals. For example, Germany's Trüby Trio imbue "Sem Contenção" with an undercurrent of acid-jazz rhythm, complementing the original tune's naturally jazzy feel, and Beastie Boys producer Mario Caldato Jr. sprinkles electronic blips and bleeps throughout "So Nice (Summer Samba)" -- he also produced the original -- calling to mind the early synth experiments of Perrey & Kingsley. Elsewhere, British duo Rae & Christian fortify the swinging groove underpinning "Bananeira," and London-via-Brazil group Da Lata pare "August Day Song" down to its essential elements: cool vocal, rubbery bass line, and fluid stream of keyboards. These rhythmic mixes are certainly fit for the dance floor, but their enjoyment should by no means be confined to the bright lights of the disco -- take this one along for your next top-down car trip.

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Matt Borghi
Bebel Gilberto's Tanto Tempo Remixes is a sultry collection of dancey Latin American tracks. One of the things that's really great about Bebel Gilberto's Tanto Tempo Remixes is that it you can almost imagine hot summer nights at some obscure Latin American club where half the club is relaxing, mesmerized by Bebel Gilberto's sweet-voiced down-tempo Latin tracks, and the other half is stomping out the luxurious polyrhythms that fully animate Tanto Tempo Remixes. It's important to mention that Bebel Gilberto is the daughter of veteran bossa nova crooner Joao Gilberto, whose work literally created the bossa nova genre, and at the same time brought then-wife Astrud Gilberto to the attention of America. This is an enthusiastic and lively recording that features the work of Mario Caldato, Jr., Peter Kruder, Rae & Christian, and many others. This is a great work; it has all of the ingredients that make up a great record: Bebel Gilberto's great vocals, fresh melodic hooks, nice rhythms, and most of all, a strong sense soulful passion.
