Song of the Day - Sept 22, 2005

I just love Brazilian music and the sound of the Portuguese language. Ever since I was first exposed to the work of Stan Getz and Astrud Gilberto; the tropical, sensual rhythms have seduced me. If you haven't heard Seu Jorge, you are in for a treat. The fact of the matter is, you may already have, as Seu Jorge did the Portuguese covers of the David Bowie songs from the movie The Life Aquatic. I especially enjoyed the opening track "Tive Razao," which supposedly means I am right. He is currently touring North America, unfortunately I just missed his appearance in Chicago.

Perfect day for Seu...

He was also in the great movie City of God (as Knockout Ned,) which featured a Jorge song as well. Also love the covers of Serge Gainsbourg ("Chatterton") and Elvis ("Don't".)
