A beautiful cover from Brazil on Polydor Records.  Captures a fifties jitterbug thing but with a raw Latin American vibe.  “Dancando na Gafieira”  By Santana & Seu Regional Moderno

Thanks to LP cover lover, Rob Keith, who we met at the WFMU Record Fair.  A collector of music from the North of Brazil, Rob sent us this nice one with this note:  Zezinho is a forró accordion player from the northeast of Brazil. His group was called “The Rat Pack of Forró.” Song titles include “Sweaty Women” and “Beautiful Balloons.” Forró is well known for double entendre wordplay, so the songs are probably what you would assume they are about… or not, depending on which way you decide to interpret them. The album is surprisingly good and well produced, recorded on 16 tracks in Rio.
