I had no idea it was no longer available. I really enjoyed Bebel Gilberto’s Tanto Tempo back in 2000, and it’s nice to rediscover it 8 years later. Crammed Discs, who originally put out the record, will be reissuing the record November 18th.
The daughter of JoÃ£o Gilberto (who co-invented bossa nova 50 years ago with his friend Tom Jobim), Bebel Gilberto was living in New York and couldn’t get a suitable record label in the US or Brazil when Brussels-based independent label Crammed signed her worldwide back in ’99. Released in early 2000 via Crammed’s sub-label Ziriguiboom (and entrusted to the able hands of Six Degrees Records for US distribution), Bebel’s debut album “Tanto Tempo” captivated audiences around the globe with its delicate mix of classic bossa nova and cool electronica.
