Thanks for posting that video link;
On the same page was a link to:
Video Leonard Bernstein - Journey into Jazz - Leonard, Bernstein, NY, Philharmonic, Schuller - Dailymotion Share Your Videos
Gunther Schuller conducting NY Phil in "Journey Into Jazz"
with Bernstein narrator. Features "Don Ellis" on trumpet.
I'd never heard of this piece. It's sort of a take off on
Prokofiev's "Peter & the Wolf".
My intermediate school BD used a screwdriver to conduct a few times...Once, it went sailing out of his hand and narrowly missed a horn player.
Thanks for sharing that Bernstein clip. I just loved his smile that he flashed soon after dispatching his baton into the second violins. That was so classic.

Saturday night I attended the symphony here in Colorado Springs.
On the last note of the first piece (a Cherubini overture), the conductor got so excited with the cut-off that he knocked his stand over and nearly took out the principal viola
I am fairly certain that Cherubini did not write in a "stand crash" at the end of his score for percussive effect
