Originally performed by Sergio Mendes and written by Steve Wonder, Bebel Gilberto and Mark Ronson put their spin on “The Real Thing”. The original version is an undeniable disco track, but one would never know from this reinterpretation. Bebel’s sultry voice and Mark Ronson’s killer horns and percussion reintroduce this classic to a new generation of music fans. “The Real Thing” appears on Bebel Gilberto’s new album All In One, out now.

Brazilian vocalist Bebel Gilberto will embark on a tour of North America beginning November 18 in Miami, which includes dates in New York on November 25 and Los Angeles on December 9 (please see reverse for a complete schedule). Her critically acclaimed new recording All In One is available now 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). The album is receiving critical acclaim from USA Today, The New York Times, Entertainment Weekly and Time Out New York, among others.

All In One perfectly expresses Gilberto’s interest in making music that feels romantic and fluid. In particular, “Chica Chica Boom Chic” stands out. The Carmen Miranda song is bolstered by Brown’s percussion heavy arrangements, which is a hallmark of traditional Brazilian music. Most of the record is sung in Portuguese, Bebel’s native language, and was conceived, developed and recorded in her home studio. Ronson produced the Stevie Wonder-penned “The Real Thing,” which was originally recorded by Sergio Mendes. The Menaham Street Band join Gilberto for the song. The singer performs a duet with Daniel Jobim (the grandson of bossa nova king Antonio Carlos Jobim) on “Bim Bom,” a song that was first recorded by her father, bossa nova legend João Gilberto.

Gilberto’s first recording was released in 1986 at age 20, but it wasn’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 “Batucada” and “Technova.” 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.

Bebel Gilberto’s forthcoming album ALL IN ONE is coming out September 29 on Verve. It is the most personal expression of her music and sound to date. As you probably know, Gilberto is the daughter of legendary bossa nova innovator Joao Gilberto… and while her music reflects the soul of traditional Brazilian music in some ways (most of the songs are sung in Portuguese) this record draws from an expansive pool of production collaborators: Mark Ronson (Amy Winehouse), Didi Gutman (Brazilian Girls), Carlinhos Brown (Caetano Veloso) and others.
