Synopsis

Album Description
2009 release, the vocalist's debut album from the Verve Records label. 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 Gilberto's interest in making music that feels romantic and fluid. In particular, Most of the record is sung in Portuguese, Bebel's native language, and was conceived, developed and recorded in her home studio.

A Sound perspective!

"I suspected that when Bebel joined the Verve label it would be a notable change for her. After listening to "All in One" this was confirmed. Bebel is my favorite female artist and although this release moves in a new direction it is very good, and easily worthy of five stars. Bebel's three previous releases differ each in their own way, yet retain a Brazilian/world music feel and sound I prefer. That sound is not just a matter of how often she sings in portuguese. It is also the way the music and her voice are recorded. "All in One" targets the American ear. The Verve label may be the big factor here. I dont know. The overall production is of high quality and full sounding, but the tonal emphasis moves away from her previous works. Not a bad thing, just different. I really like "Sun is shinning" and "The real thing" the more I hear them. Bebel does a great job expanding herself. "Port Antonio" and "Forever" are simply beautiful. "All in one" and "Chica chica boom chic" are instant hits. The rest of the songs are solid. My one complaint is the songs are generally too short. A few of the songs could have been extended with no danger of fatigue. Thanks Bebel for all the clean, beautiful music."
Bebel's Bento Box

""All in One" is Bebel Gilberto's latest--she's maintained a constant sound-she doesn't venture into anything odd (example,the Michael Bolton/Lady GaGa duet) She collaborates with Mark Ronson,sings Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley. It's jazzy,sensual,and dreamlike. She sings "Bim Bom" by her father Joao Gilberto,and her songs were recorded in as diverse places as Brazil,Jamaica,Los Angeles,and New York City. She brings many musical flavors together so there's something for everyone--like a bento box.

"All in one" opens with a gentle love song. She brings in reggae with her cover of Bob Marley's "Sun is shining." Her "Far from the Sea","Segrredo (Secret)" and "Port Antonio" are more meditative. She sings in Portuguese and English. It's easy listening--but there's a sensuality to it. It isn't an insomnia cure. She does a marvelous version of "Chica Chica Boom Chic" (model turned singer Ivette Sangalo also does a great one MTV Ao Vivo )

It's a consistently strong work. Bebel has managed to still make great music. Forget Diana Krall's boring Brazilian Quiet Nights Bebel Gilberto,like Rio de Janeiro,is the winner here! "All in one" has everything."
Bravo! Bebel's back!

"First a bit of background history: Bebel's first album was produced by Suba, a Serbian electro impressario who sadly and tragically perished in a Sao Paulo studio fire. Suba understood bossa nova in a truly genius way, the way that Joao Gilberto (Bebel's pappy) or Tom Jobim did, a casual understated muted expression of the Brazilian rhythmic Samba.

With his demise, the subsequent albums of Bebel's never quite approached the harmony between the old and the new, the electro and the acoustic (bossa nova). This album comes the closest thus far to recapture some if not most of the magic and excitement. Nice electro samples unifying tracks with alternating bossa and old school/funk melodies. The mixing is superb.

Do we still mourn the premature loss of Suba? Of course. But he would approve of this album. Obrigado, Bebel!"
