Billy May –not to be confused with Billy Mays– was the king of the big band sound we know now as “ultra lounge”. When I throw my legendary annual-when-I-can-afford-it Cocoa-a-GoGo holiday party, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer Mambo is always on the mix list.
Click Rudolph to see an adorable Rankin-Bass video to the song.
