Paulinho e Seus Night-Boys – Certinho Para Dancar No 2 (1962)

RCA Camden CALB 5039

Whoever visited Loronix surely remembers the beautiful cover of Certinho Para Dancar by Paulinho e Seus Night-boys.
In the just arrived package from Pedro & 300discos I found two more albums by this artist (a guitarist) and his band.
The first one to be presented is the second volume of Certinho Para Dancar, wrapped in a differently designed but also very interesting cover, minimalistic in all aspects…

The compositions are:

01. Drink Em São Paulo (Djalma Ferreira / Paulo Nunes)
02. Do Jeito Que a Gente Quer (Ed Lincoln)
03. Maria Conga (Orlandivo / Roberto Jorge)
04. Wheels (Richard Stephens / Jimmy Torres)
05. O Barquinho (Roberto Menescal / Ronaldo Bôscoli)
06. Dona Baratinha (Almeida Rego / Newton Ramalho)

The cast is different this time and consists of:

Gumercindo Nogueira da Silva (Gugu): Contrabaixo
Amaury Rodrigues: Ritmo

The tracks:

07. Vola Colomba (Carlo Concina / Bruno Cherubini)

10. Meet Mister Callaghan (Eric Spears)
11. I Could Have Danced All Night (Alan Jay Lerner / Frederick Loewe)
12. Only You (Buck Ram / Ande Rand)

After quick listening to several tracks, I burned this album immediately to CD and could not stop playing it over and over again.
Once again it happens: Playing pure para dançar relieves the musicians of the pressure to create art that will amaze the public and critics and get a place in music history (an attitude which so often leads  to catastrophic results) and makes it possible to really create something outstanding.
Well Gallo and his conjunto have created a masterpiece here, pure beauty, elegance and excitement.
Impressive!
