Quentin Jackson - mid 20th Century
from Jazz Anecdotes, page 309:
The trombones were on the left of the bandstand facing the theater and the trumpets would be to the right. Cab would be in front, singing a beautiful ballad. And Tyree [Glenn] and Dizzy would act like they were playing football. Dizzy would throw a pass and Tyree would act like he was catching it, and as he caught it, Cozy Cole would hit the bass drum a tap, and the people would laugh in the middle of a beautiful ballad. Cab didn't know exactly what was going on.
