Apparently, Mambo for Cats came out in 1955. The album is a collection of various artists performing “Latinate versions of old standards” such as “Lullaby of Birdland,” “Makin’ Whoopee,” and “St. Louis Blues” (Wilds). While the album itself appears to be rather “meh” (according to Tony Wilds of, this cover art–by Jim Flora–is hep, hep, hep. In fact, it’s now my Twitter page’s background.
