Must-See Music Pick! From the Music Editors: View Music Picks 
After signing with the Now-Again label (an offshoot of Stones Throw specializing in progressive jazz, funk and psychedelic rock), multi-talented musician and actor Seu Jorge wasted no time in getting a new album out. Within months of announcing his new home, Jorge released the lead single (a cover of Roy Ayers' "Everybody Loves The Sunshine") to his self-titled album, and announced a three-week North American tour to follow. The project is a nice departure from Jorge's previous work, and his sound breaks new ground, offering a more raw and organic feel throughout. Much of that can be attributed to his talented band mates Almaz, which features famed composer Antonio Pinto (City of God). For an artist of Jorge's caliber, it's a rarity (and pleasure) to see him take such risks, and his performance at Logan Square will be a perfect opportunity to reap the benefits. (J. Min)
