Unwind: Bebel Gilberto

Cannot understand a word she is saying, since I don't speak any Portugese. But every song of hers is so lush, so layered with innuendo, longing and buried joy that I just cannot wait to listen to another.

If samba and jazz had a child, it would be Bebel Gilberto, daughter of the great guitarist and bossa nova legend, João Gilberto.

This is some serious cocktail party or date music.  Or something to wind down with after a really tough day. 

Or just something to pop on with a glass of wine and perhaps enjoy a slow dance or two in the living room.

Wonderful stuff.
