Bebel Gilberto’s sultry smooth vocals are like a cigarette after sex. They sneak inside your system, tickle your nerves and leave a residue at every pore. Unlike a cig, Gil-berto is sooo good for you. Her debut record Tanto Tempo is a ßoating musical experience with the Portuguese Sade. Weaving airy bossonova beats with her tissue-light vocals, Gilberto sets the tempo for a romantic escapade. Barry White aside, this is the new music for romance.
