Album · 2005 · 12 Songs. Recorded after his memorable role in The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou brought the Brazilian singer/songwriter a new audience, Cru showcases Seu Jorge's modernist style. Like the original bossa nova performers of the late '50s, Jorge brings new international flavors to Brazil's homegrown melodies and rhythms.

Consumer Guide Album. Seu Jorge: Cru There's a reason rhythm-and not the subtle stuff: beats stated and elaborated, on percussion instruments per se or string and electronic instruments deployed percussively-looms so large for us in the music of darker-skinned foreigners who don't sing in English. Romance of the primitive not required-rhythm is where the music is, and the meaning.
Cru is Seu Jorge's international debut is a marvel: gentle songs, passionately delivered. Sophisticated and surprising. Intimate and raw. Cru heralds an extraordinary talent. Its lyrics range from the political commitment of 'Eu sou Favela' to the words of love of 'Tive Razao'. Seu Jorge is a voice straight out of the favelas, Rio de Janeiro's notoriously violent slums where grinding poverty and desperation exist side-by-side with a musical hotbed . Cru is much more laidback and more of a chill-out album. The songs include quite a few monkey(?) sounds in the background, which is actually kind of funny and adds to the whole tropical feeling. I love Seu Jorge's voice.
