Bebel Gilberto

This Brazilian woman must have been in a warm climate while writing and recording this her third solo album. Everything about it oozes summer and sea breeze. Somehow on each outing she manages to retain the traditional elements of her culture's music and also to make it sound very up-to-date. Singing in English and Portuguese her voice is full of sensuality and classiness. She is comfortable in the bossa nova, pop and samba genres, but everything is kinda jumbled together…but in a good way. Gilberto has certainly carved out her own identity and sound within these genres. If you are having an outdoor party under the stars than this is the perfect album to put on in the background to set the mood.
