Perhaps you refer to an old post of mine about the time Charlie Shavers was
playing Dixieland at The Metropole in NYC. One night he took a higher paying
gig and sent Dizzy in as a sub.

Dizzy loved it, as did the audience, as did trombonist Big Chief Russell
Moore and clarinetist Tony Parenti who were on the gig that night.

Don't know if Dizzy every recorded Dixieland.
