"She's A Bombshell From Brooklyn" by Xavier Cugat

If Xavier Cugat had only brought Latin rhythms to American music, that would have been enough to ensure his legend; confirmation of his legendary status comes from his mentorship of a feisty little bundle of lady known as Charo.

Cugat died on this day in 1990, at the age of ninety, but not before appearing in the movie Stage Door Canteen (1943) to record this spritely little ditty with guest vocalist Lina Romay.
