Jimmy McPartland - the 1920's

from Hear Me Talkin' To Ya: The Classic Story of Jazz as Told by the Men Who Made It, page 278:

Ben Pollock--now there was a drummer, one of the finest that ever lived! He used to be with the New Orleans Rhythm Kings, and he produced as good a beat as I've heard. When he got behind you, he'd really make you go--yes, he'd send you.
