That's just out and out fantastic.

I never saw vertical 'sock' cymbals. Just horizontal like on the left.

He was doing some incredible stuff at the end on that big 28" (?) bass.

Incredibly talented man.

That was wicked! I didn't realize he tapped danced.
Watching him, I could see a lot of his influence in what
Michael Jackson did.

I'd love to have a sock hat!

Pretty awesome, Ted. Of course, he was also a great singer. I especially like this track from his later years with Oscar Peterson:
