Calypso Mama With The Lad Richards Orchestra
Maureen DuValier, the "Calypso Mama" from Nassau, said that Trinidadian Lord Kitchener was her favorite calypsonian. DuValier performed in hotels throughout the Bahamas, on cruise ships, and in Cuba and New York. If I am not mistaken I think she died recently.
This album has my man Lad Richards playing the hell out of his alto saxophone. I mentioned him on one of my earlier posts.
