Here’s a video of an early study—an “outtake”—from WORDLESS! the slide tawk & live music extravaganza that composer/saxophonist Phillip Johnston and I will be touring with in October. 

It’s a classic of comics timing by the great H.M. Bateman from a 1921 Punch magazine—cited by Alfred Hitchcock (another master of timing) as the inspiration for the famous Albert Hall sequence of The Man Who Knew Too Much!
