This scion of Brazilian musical royalty has adroitly transcended her lineage, melding father João’s bossa nova with electronica on 2000’s Tanto Tempo and her self-titled ’04 follow-up. On Momento, Bebel Gilberto enriches her formula with experimental flourishes and well-chosen partners to complement her caressing vocals. Enlisting the Brazilian Girls, she deploys wah-wah keyboards on the funky ”Bring Back the Love” and acoustic guitars on the urban odyssey ”Os Novos Yorkinos.” For Gilberto, the third time is a charmer.
