Brazilian vocalist Bebel Gilberto will appear for special release date performances at New York CityÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s The Box on September 29 at 7:30 P.M. & 9:30 P.M (You can get your tickets here). GilbertoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s new recording All In One will be released that day on Verve. Known worldwide for her ability to connect modern sounds with the heart and soul of Brazilian music, the New York-born Gilberto focuses on the rhythms of her native country, devising a cosmopolitan yet classic sound with the help of a diverse group of collaborators, including Carlinhos Brown (Caetano Veloso), Didi Gutman (Brazilian Girls), Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse), Daniel Jobim (grandson of Antonio Carlos Jobim) and John King (the Dust Brothers).
All In One perfectly expresses GilbertoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s interest in making music that feels romantic and fluid. In particular, Ã¢â‚¬Å“Chica Chica Boom ChicÃ¢â‚¬Â stands out. The Carmen Miranda song is bolstered by BrownÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s percussive-heavy arrangements, which is a hallmark of traditional Brazilian music. Most of the record is sung in Portuguese, BebelÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s native language, and was conceived, developed and recorded in her home studio. Ronson produced the Stevie Wonder-penned Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Real Thing,Ã¢â‚¬Â which was originally recorded by Sergio Mendes. The Dap Kings, the band best known for supporting Sharon Jones and Amy Winehouse, join Gilberto for Ã¢â‚¬Å“The Real Thing.Ã¢â‚¬Â The singer performs a duet with Daniel Jobim (the grandson of bossa nova king Antonio Carlos Jobim) on Ã¢â‚¬Å“Bim Bom,Ã¢â‚¬Â a song that was first recorded by her father, bossa nova legend JoÃƒÂ£o Gilberto.
GilbertoÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s first recording was released in 1986 at age 20, but it wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t until she moved to London in the early `90s, where she became interested in pop and urban music, that she began to develop her trademark sound. With her international debut Tanto Tempo (2000), which helped spark a resurgence in American interest in Brazilian music and sold millions worldwide, Gilberto met with critical acclaim, enjoying global success with the hits Ã¢â‚¬Å“BatucadaÃ¢â‚¬Â and Ã¢â‚¬Å“Technova.Ã¢â‚¬Â Her music reached listeners across genres, from world music and jazz to electronic and indie. Over the years Gilberto has collaborated with artists including David Byrne, Arto Lindsay, Amon Tobin, Thievery Corporation and Nina Miranda.
