Teddy Hill - the 1940's

from Hear Me Talkin' To Ya: The Classic Story of Jazz as Told by the Men Who Made It, page 349:

Kenny Clarke kept playing those offbeats and little rhythmic tricks on the bass drums. I used to imitate him and I'd ask him, "What is that klook-mop stuff?" That's what it sounded like, and that's what we called the music they were playing. Later on we called it be-bop.
