I suppose I must have been around fourteen years old when I first heard this and later when I bought the album I wore out this track that had Paul Gonsalves 27 choruses nearly causing a riot. But for me, it was hearing the rap of a rolled-up newspaper on the stage by veteran drummer Jo Jones that probably triggered the entire thing as he back beat the band. Recorded at the Newport Jazz Festival in 1956. Enjoy.
