    Found this quote whilst perusing stories about the upcoming NFC championship game (Go Niners!)

    "One of the game’s most prolific passers in Drew Brees quickly discovered that last weekend, as he was hurried like a bassist trying to stay in step with Satchmo’s trumpet. The Saints went marching in, but the Niners came marching out."

    the quote comes from this link

    first ever sports to bass player reference I've ever come across

  5. Yeah, no way you'll keep up with Satchmo playing with a pick vs fingers...

    Not a very good analogy, Satchmo wasn't well known for playing at faster tempos.
