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.
