About this item

Bebel Gilberto is back with "Momento", her third solo album, presenting some of her most elegant and personal musical statements since bursting on the scene in 2000 when her Grammy nominated debut album "Tanto Tempo" took the world by storm. The album draws on the graceful, low-key electronica of her debut and the enchanting, acoustic simplicity of her second self-titled album. Gilberto's voice is presented in a variety of settings that showcase her magical delivery and subtle, powerful emotions. "Momento" sees Gilberto coming into her own as a songwriter, writing or co-writing the majority of the songs here. She also delivers three impressive covers: "Cacada" (written by her uncle and famed songwriter Chico Buarque); "Tranquilo" (written by young Rio producer Kassin) and a heart-stopping bossa-jazz version of Cole Porter's classic "Night And Day".
