Not outer space, but the space between notes in her music. These days, there's lots of it.<p>When she began making her new album, <em>The Absence</em>, Gardot says the thing she wanted most was a clean, uncluttered sound — something resembling Brazil's beloved bossa nova from the 1960s. She came up with coy, understated melodies and set them to rhythms that feel as natural as an ocean breeze.
