I’ll again take issue with the notion that life is not worth living unless you’ve heard this album. Honestly, I could have heard it thirty times already in a dentist office and not even realized it. And that’s not necessarily an insult! As far as background lobby music goes, I thought this was really pleasant. Having a dinner party for your parents and all their friends? Now you know what to put on at a volume just loud enough to be heard but not intrude. And what a lovely name. Bebel Gilberto. I’ll be saying it in my dreams.
Stylish, cool, elegant, laid back bossa nova embraces modern production with electronic elements to create something beautifully dreamy and quietly glorious.
Listened to this album many many times in grad school. It was a great melding of the bossa nova sound with modern production and some electronic elements. I had no problem giving it another listen and realized I had missed it.
Like me some Spanish music
Love impromptu trips to Brazil. Haven’t seen Joao on here yet
Im not used to this style, but i loved it
Unless it is already playing on the dance floor or in my pretend cabana in Brazil, I’d never choose to listen
So ein schöner tempowechsel, ich wusste nicht, dass Joao Gilberto eine so talentierte Tochter hat.
Very beautiful abd the instrumentation sounds so damn crisp!!!
Great music, enjoyed it while on a long drive.
Amazing bossa nova
Is this progressive samba? whatever it is it’s fucking glorious - 10/10
Far exceeded my preliminary album-cover-based expectations. Fans of Stereolab should find something to like on this record.
Love me some bossa nova. Such great stuff.
Swag af trip-hop infused lounge sounds. Brb gonna blast this from my poolside cabana v
Suba, the producer of this smooth, cool, down tempo album died while saving the newly recorded album from a studio fire!!! I mean, I love it, it's sumptuous and sexy but I wouldn't risk my life for it.
My type of chill music 💯💯💯
Loved it for chill background vibes. Frenchy cafe
Jazzy calm really good vibes. Kinda reminds me of the wild world sound track.
the jazzy feel was much appreciated, and i love love love this person’s vocals!
There’s noticeable Brazil representation on this list, and I’m for it! This is a lovely listen that was just perfect for my evening. There’s a lot of the classic bossa nova/samba sound with some modern twists nestled in there. It all works wonderfully.
Absolutely enchanting. I was enchanted.
I can hear Rio’s beaches calling. I think that the listening experience was enhanced by the non-English language lyrics.
I remember clearly when this album came out. As a fan of bossa nova and her father João Gilberto, I was definitely interested. I read reviews and planned to buy it...and evidently didn't. This was quite a lovely update of the bossa nova into a 21st century feel. It's wonderful to revisit such a great version of "Summer Samba," one of my all time favorite songs. It was quite perfect for a first walk outside on a sunny, crisp day after a long, cold winter. This was lush and lovely.
It is very interesting to hear this right after listening to her father. While that record had a staleness to it, this is much more reminiscent of Norah Jones and a soothing coffee shop type record. I liked.
Well, this was a first for me in that there's a song on this album I couldn't find on Spotify nor YouTube. So for now I'll just have to skip it. That song is Alguem. There were a couple of covers on YouTube but I refuse to listen to those as I feel it takes away from what listening to this album should be. However, I can safely say I'll be seeking this out in physical form. This was a beautiful album. A beautiful mix of Bossa Nova, Future Jazz and Downtempo. Even felt a bit of DnB energy from Lonely. Fun, mostly upbeat and tuneful. I wish for a warmer day to review this, quite honestly. Favourite: Lonely
Different language but really good chill Jazz
Sumptuous opening track. Ladies and gentlemen, welcome to the Bossa Nova music style. And real music. If you like this just a littel bit, go listen to RED HOT +RIO (a compilation) or the all time classic album that will blow you away "Getz/Gilberto" . This album gives me hope for The List. ....which needs more variegation, World and more Varied (and female) voices, and less rancid rap, garage and punk. But hey, another time we can go down the allmusic ratings, or rolling stone lists, right? And this has been educative so far. Bebel. She was Eva in the film Rio, is a brazilian bossa nova figure, she is NOT descended from Astrid Gilberto, but IS descended from Brazilian guitarist / vocalist João Gilberto (Astrid's ex), and her mother was singer Miúcha. So, maybe we will hear the album "Getz/Gilberto" which has two of my all time favourite tracks. I'm off to Rio now....
This album was really pretty and very relaxing. I loved it a lot more than I thought I would.
Smooth as silk. Just want to sit back and let all parts of this flutter over me.
i have basically no bossa nova knowledge, but this album was really lovely! good vibes all the way through, really enjoyed the use of electronic music
No doubt that this is a musical family. I’m huge bossa nova fan, but if you would have described a “bossa nova, drum machine, new age” album, I would have been skeptical. All of the elements blend together in a really tasteful way that shows considerable restraint for the time. A treat to listen to.
I enjoyed this Brazilian masterpiece.
Another album I've loved for over 20 years. Sing to me Bebel
This happened to fall on a sunny summer day, sat in the garden, so suited the mood beautifully.
Ähnelt Luna Llena
great bossanova like mom and dad did! fav track: Sem Contenção
really smooth listen, top tier bossa nova
Beautiful voice and sexy samba music. Very nice vibes
Very good South American music. Enjoyed more than I thought I would.
The whole album isn't available on Spotify in the UK. However, what is there is quite lovely. Mellow, understated instrumentation coupled to beautiful, breathy vocals; bar one or two odd production choices (the trip hop percussion on the opening track belies its turn of the millennium provenance) this proved to be a nice surprise.
Bosa nova, es siempre bosa nova. Música que siempre te lleva a otros lugares. Aunque me encanta no le pongo 5 estrellas por que la veo algo artificial.
was waiting for something a bit different from generic rock and this was certainly it. I enjoyed it, would not be a regular listen but good. 3.6
solid bossa nova jazzy vibes. I appreciate the warm sound- none of that hyperclinical dentists' office sound that many newer jazz albums have
Saved Prior: None Off Rip: August Day Song, So Nice (Summer Song), Bananeira Cutting Edge: None Overall Notes: Nice voice and beats. Really liked this, will be returning
Really nice blend of classic bossa nova and modern instrumentation.
Breezy and lovely.
This album is chill and nice
Done. Good dinner party music.
Enjoyed listening to this on a rainy day. Nice change of pace.
Love the latin grooves and precussion. Think its fairly unique to have samba music this well produced.
nice chill music
Extra chill and noooice style fusion.
'Tanto Tempo' brought me back to the random Bossa Nova phase I went through in lock-down last year. As Gilberto proves, that's not a bad thing. Super groovy, although I could imagine it being slightly boring and repetitive if jazz/bossa nova is not really your thing. I listened to it on a Saturday morning while doing the chores. Safe to say, Gilberto's smooth tone made my errands a lot more enjoyable. Some favourites included Lonely, Mais Feliz, August Day Song, and Close Your Eyes.
Filha do João Gilberto, sobrinha do Chico Buarque. Familia foda, e um otimo album.
Favoriete nummers: - August Day Song - So Nice
portuguese jams are what i need in the morning I hope. V v v refreshing. also a little too much so we'll see.
Easy listening, a few very good tracks
Mjög ljúft og notalegt
mellow - really liked this, was pleasantly surprised, never heard of her before
Warm, unaufgeregt, tröstend, funktioniert auch leise, welch moderate Kraft. Ich fühl mich verliebt, berührt, aufgehoben. Intime 3.9

Loved this vibe!
Cool mix of bossa nova and electronics
De va riktigt bra!
Very chill music. Radio afterwards was very jazzy
A very chilled out album, great for those lazy Sundays when you just want to relax and drink coffee. Would be an album I will be listening to again
Un bel album bossa nova qui secoutentrs tres bien 4.5
Great sound quality. Great music. Not really my taste for bossa nova, but very good.
Chill and wine
This album it a good example of why I really enjoy this list and this website. I would never listen to this album or have even heard of it otherwise. This was a really enjoyable album despite not being able to understand most of it.
Tranquilo. Música melódica bien construido
Nice light background bossa nova 4
This was some nice and gentle stuff to start my morning to. I feel like I can’t give it a fair review without understanding the lyrics, so I will give it a 4 for benefit of the doubt and for creating a nice atmosphere and vibe.
Nice and calm. Like a Spanish-speaking Norah Jones in an odd kind of way. I dig it.
Bossa Nova, liked
Sounds pretty good, easy listening background kind of music
So soft and sexy
4, suba is based
Mellow. I liked this a lot, especially "August Day Song"
Listened to it eating tea by a lake in the sunshine. +1* for that.
I did not come in thinking I would like Tanto Tempo. I'm not a fan of her voice. It's calm and soothing but it sounds a bit straight-toned and un-lively at times. I find that it may get boring at some points if you don't pay attention. There are 3 or so songs on here that are boring. But there are some upbeat and groovy songs on this album. It's one of the better albums I have been generated that was outside my comfort zone. I think a 3-star score doesn't do this record justice. A solid 4 seems to be an overstatement for me. So I will go with a very light 4. Highlights: August Day Songs, So Nice (Summer Samba), Bananeira, Close Your Eyes
I'm not a huge fan of this genre of music in general, but this is a very good example of it. Smooth vocals and excellent orchestration make for an extremely relaxing experience.
My aural palette isn't sophisticated enough to distinguish any particular Bossa Nova song from The Girl from Ipanema. That said, I always love the grove. This album could play on repeat in every elevator and supermarket for the rest of time and I'd be happy.
It was nice listening to it while working. I liked the vibe and could see myself putting it on again as background music. Solid 4 stars.
