    It's been a little while, but Brazilian singer-songwriter Seu Jorge is heading back to New York for an eight-night, 16-show run at Blue Note on November 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18 & 19 (topping his measly six-night run last year). Jorge is best known here in America for acting in City of God and The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou (which he scored using only acoustic, Portuguese David Bowie covers). With two shows each night (8 PM & 10:30 PM), this run provides a great opportunity to catch the artist in a very intimate setting. You can make reservations for a table now (bar seats are no reservation, day-of seating).

  • The Eyes Have It: An Interview with LP

    Equal parts swagger and sway, LP is a rock star, in the truest sense.... like the love child of David Bowie and Patti Smith.

    In the business that is show, there are various archetypes. Songwriters toil away in anonymity, pairing catchy melodies with heartfelt lyrics in hopes of having a hit. Singers train their focus on their voice as their instrument, putting perfect performances above all else. Artists take a 360-degree approach, combining a skill for writing with a knack for performing. And then there are the rock stars. From Mick Jagger to Joan Jett, David Bowie to Patti…

The collection originally came out in 1989 as an early CD-era release. It was then reissued in 2003.
