Joao And Bebel Gilberto
James Maycock, The Times, June 2004
IT WAS IN THE summer of 64, 40 years ago this month, that Joao Gilbertos A Girl From Ipanema was released. A huge global hit, the track epitomized the bossa nova – a seductive, light rhythm dipped in a luscious blue mood. Now, his daughter Bebel, is skilfully updating the style for the 21st century.
