After a trip to a Dance Festival in Argentina in the Lindy Hop style, Baldacci composed a song in solidarity with all those who have already suffered and had their invitations to a dance refused. Here the song mentions the late and greatest icon of Lindy Hop, Frankie Manning, implying that better days will come to the lives of aspiring dancers for the benevolence of his entity.

  • It’s you (Henry/Hide/Haroldo Barbosa)

A song little known to the general public, Little Girl was iconic in Nat King Cole’s repertoire and is based on the harmony of After You’ve Gone. Cole introduced the theme to the repertoire in the late 1940s. In April 1956, already in stardom, Cole suffered a racist attack at a concert in the city of Birmingham, Alabama, when he was, by coincidence, singing this song. In Brazil, it was called É voce and was recorded by the prodigious Sonia Delfino in 1960 with an arrangement of Rock n’ Roll, in the Iê-iê-iê style on the LP ‘Alô, Broto’.
