Seu Jorge
Blue Note, Greenwich Village Wednesday July 24 2013 20:00
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. Catch Jorge here at an intimate three-night run.
