I saw Seu Jorge for the second time at the Blue Note last night. First time was two years ago at Terminal 5 with Almaz. As always he never disappoints his fans and for those seeing him the first time walks away with wanting more. With that wonderful voice and awesome compositions he takes you back to Brazil with that feeling of "saudade".

Seu Jorge was once a certified "groovie" in his native favela, rising from abject poverty to help spearhead a ’90s revival of Brazilian R&B. The have-guitar-will-travel phase of his career took off when he strummed David Bowie covers in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou. Tonight he plays with his latest combo, Almaz, as part of the citywide Brasil Summerfest celebration.
