Excellent Samba soul to get you going,
By A Customer
This review is from: Carolina (Audio CD)
I read about Seu Jorge in the spring/summer edition of Straight no Chaser and his story is interesting enough. Being a former street kid in Brazil and doing the things that he has now achieved is no easy feat. However, that said I had to have a listen to the album myself and it is absolutely superb. The production which features Mario Caldato of the Beastie boy fame is excellent.
The album starts of in great fashion with Carolina and continues in various different guises that never make you lose interest. It is not just the fact that he uses both Samba and Bossa to excellent effect but more of the contemporary qualities that makes this an absolute gem. Seu Jorge is someone that we will be hearing a lot of in the future.
