Mama Rosin

Mama Rosin – Little Yvonne Le Blanc – 1956

  1. Rhumba music became popular amount country musicians for a short period of time during the 1950s and Nathan's band seemed to jump in on the action. "Mama Rosin" is very similar to a classic Cuban song from the 30's "Mama Inez" (or "Ay Mama Inez"), written by composer Eliseo Grenet. It was covered by, among others, Xavier Cugat, Charlie Parker and the French singer Maurice Chevalier. In fact, it would be Chevalier's lyrics that come closest to the version Yvonne used.
