[Dixielandjazz] Speaking of Wild Bill Davison

I'm pretty sure Wild Bill was not a big fan of New Orleans style as played by
George Lewis etal.  Yet my memory somehow brings up a story that I read
years ago stating that on one occasion he was persuaded to sit in for one tune
with the George Lewis band.  He returned to his table to state that he was
really impressed with the power of the rhythm section.  Can anyone confirm
that story in any way?
