I've got to verify the source on this one, but according to one of his biographers, Louis Armstrong called out(to the then King) at a Royal Performance "Hey Rex,this one's for you!" or words to that effect.

VERY funny. I love this as it is so great and so him!

Any other amusing jazz/blues quotes y'all might like to share??
I'm listening ...
