 Bebel Gilberto w/Paulinho Garcia (09/14 & 09/15 )
Known for her adventurous blends of Brazilian, European and electronic pop styles, Gilberto continues to blur musical boundaries on All In One. But the sensual rhythms of her native country
dominate the production courtesy of Carlinhos Brown, Didi Gutman (Brazilian Girls), Mark Ronson, Daniel Jobim and John King of the acclaimed Dust Brothers. Some arrangements, particularly on “Far From the Sea,” “Port Antonio” and “Secret,” dazzle with sensitive instrumentation, folding in strings and woodwinds. Or they thump with irresistible beats.
