Wikipedia : This day (September 14, 1989), in Mexico City, Mexico, died Damasa Perez Prado, Cuban bandleader often referred to as the ‘King of the Mambo’.

Pérez Prado and Mambomania : Dubbed The Mambo King, he reigned supreme as one of the most influential pop orchestra leaders of the early 1950s. As the mambo rhythm spread across the continents, a society emerged from the dark years of World War II to shed it’s inhibitions and embrace the frenzy of this Afro-Cuban beat.

@S p a c e A g e P o p M u s i c : Prado’s brother, Panteleon Perez Prado, who moved to Europe in 1956, also ran a mambo band and was so infuriated with his younger brother’s success that he even tried to sue in court to be declared as the superior bandleader.

@last.fm : Prado’s mambo was filled with piercing high-register trumpets, undulating saxophone counterpoint, atmospheric organ (later on), and harmonic ideas borrowed from jaz

@Discogs : In 1950 arranger Sonny Burke heard Que rico el mambo while on vacation in Mexico and recorded it back in the United States as Mambo Jambo. The single was a hit, which caused Prado to launch a US tour. His appearances in 1951 were sell-outs and he began recording US releases for RCA Victor
