Seu Jorge & Almaz – The Model (Chapter One)

Director Kahlil Joseph, who already shot the video for Aloe Blacc’s I Need a Dollar, and cameraman Bradford Young are responsible for this nicely photographed images for Seu Jorge & Almaz.

In this video, you can hear three cover-versions taken from their self-titled album: Roy Ayers’ “Everybody Loves The Sunshine,” Martinho da Vila and João de Aquino’s “Cirandar” and Kraftwerk’s “The Model”.

The album is out on Stones Throw sidekick Now-Again.

Seu Jorge & Almaz – Everybody Loves The Sunshine

Just as I was beginning to miss some yellow on the front page, I discovered this Roy Ayers cover by Seu Jorge, Brazilian singer, actor and part of the Belafonte crew.

Apparently, Seu and his band Almaz have recorded a 12-inch to be released in mid-June on Now-Again Records. Their self-titled album is due to follow on July 27, 2010.

You can download this track for free from the Now-Again website.
