Various Artists Bebel Gilberto Remixed
- Words: Luciana Lopez
- Label: Six Degrees
With Gilberto‘s first album, Tanto Tempo, remixed, it‘s unsurprising that her second should get the same treatment. Here, Gilberto (from Brazilian bossa royalty) again shows vocal versatility with help from remixers like DJ Spinna and Thievery Corporation (who turn in the restrained and outstanding "Cada Beijo"). In the hands of Latin Project, "Aganju" goes from its African-influenced original to a lounge-ready groove; Spiritual South less successfully takes the song into beat-heavy, more mechanized territory. Gilberto still hasn‘t matched her excellent first album-but it‘s (mostly) a pleasure to hear her try.
