Seu Jorge


Jorge Mário da Silva was born in 1970 in Belford Roxo, in the Metropolitan Area of Rio de Janeiro, and from an early age he knew he wanted to be a musician. He worked several jobs from the age of 10 onwards, was a regular at balls and Samba gatherings in Rio, and started out young singing at clubs. He left home at 19 and lived on the streets for a few years, where he had his first contact with theater. Discovered by clarinet player Paulo Moura, he auditioned for a musical and his life changed entirely ever since.  Seu Jorge (a nickname given by drummer and friend Marcelo Yuka) made his first mark as a professional musician in 1998: as a member of band Farofa Carioca, he released the album Moro no Brasil in Portugal, Japan and Brazil. In 2001 he released his first solo album, Samba Esporte Fino, produced by Mário Caldato and Seu Jorge, and mixed and mastered in Los Angeles by Mário Caldato

Bebel Gilberto: Tudo

Read "Tudo" reviewed by Ernest Barteldes

On her seventh studio album, Bebel Gilberto follows a path similar to her last two records: a blend of original electronic-enhanced acoustic music sung in English and Portuguese and a handful of covers. Tudo opens with the gentle ballad “Somewhere Else," a track cleverly arranged with the addition of a string quartet led by Miguel Atwood-Ferguson. ...

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
