I can't  remember the guy's name but "Cannonball" Adderly had an enormous
hit with a  number composed by his band's piano player.  Said piano player
got  sick of having to do it each set during a gig and started clowning  
with it on the stand.  Cannon got so mad at him that he  chased the piano
player off the stand and a block away from the club before  he quit


That would be, I assume, Joe Zawinul... a very white guy from Eastern  Europe 
and composer of Mercy Mercy Mercy and Birdland....
