Perhaps if you had given Joe one and offered to split the profits?

I'll take your opinion on this one. I was the culprit.
Big Band (Joe Battaglia and the New York Big Band)
New York's "Supper Club"
Joe made a place for me as solo pianist between band sets. I wrote plenty of
charts for Joe and
attended rehearsals. He had a regular pianist and I subbed at rehearsals and
gigs when the regular
couldn't make it.
I created and published a cd (all midis) entitled LFO POPS. Tunes are
that piano students learn from the typical teachers. (Fuer Elise, Spinning
Song, et al.)
I asked Joe if he would mind my placing a small display in the hat check
room and letting
the attendant sell them. He said - no problem. Manager of the club said no
problem but he would like a copy
Placard info mentioned my name as a member of the band. The band name and
Joe's name were in largest type.
I was fired by Joe.
