Editors’ Notes

The master samba-revivalist Seu Jorge is talented enough to tackle any genre of music and refashion it in his own image. He first gained international attention through his role in the critically acclaimed City of God, then 2005’s Cru (Raw) saw him remake Lieber and Stoller’s standard “Don’t” into sunny Brazilian Pop. It's not surprising that American auteur Wes Anderson recognized Jorge’s interpretive talents and commissioned him to record a set of Portuguese language David Bowie covers for the soundtrack to his Life Aquatic. What is surprising is the fierce originality that Jorge injects into his performances. His effortlessly supple delivery, reminiscent at times of Caetano Veloso’s dulcet croon, and his painterly rhythm guitar work allow The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions to transcend its admittedly kitschy concept; Jorge’s unrestrained covers of “Lady Stardust” and “Life on Mars” in particular gain strength when removed from their cinematic context. With The Life Aquatic Studio Sessions Seu Jorge has created a work possessed of a casual intimacy that makes it an essential addition to his catalogue.

When I grow up

I want to hire Seu Jorge to hang around my life - on the deck of my yachts, in the window nooks on the marble staircases in my mansions, perhaps on a chaise lounge in the solarium - and play music like this all day long, so I can just stumble across some random act of inutterable beauty at odd times of the day. Sometimes, it can seem like this music is taking itself too seriously, and then I realize that he is singing David Bowie in Portugese, and I just start giggling. This album is fantastic, or as someone above put it, "Seu Jorge is made of awesome."

Perfect Combination of Rock and World

If you like David Bowie, or even if you don't, this album is downright awesome. I love Seu Jorge's voice and smooth guitar playing. The way he covers these songs just makes me long to listen to them forever. It's like he's calling me to him with David Bowie. And David Bowie rules. Plus it's kind of silly.
