    I really dig Sonny Red and his fiery blues vibe.

    Do my ears deceive me, is Sonny Red playing Lady Madonna in 1962, listen from 1:20 to 1:27

    Not really, that Lady Madonna line has some repeated notes then a descending note. Sonny's line at 1.22 has some repeated notes then some ascending notes.

    There's only 12 notes, you are always going to hear some similar phrases in music, hence all those daft plagiarism legal cases that keep hitting the headlines (X has a massive hit, then Y crawls out of obscurity to claim X stole the handclaps/cowbell/3 notes of a guitar solo from Y’s record ten years previously which no-one bought).

    What Sonny IS copying is Charlie Parker - he is using a ton of Bird's phrases here.

    What I hear in "The Rhythm Thing" is Sonny Red's take on rhythm changes. Straight up, Bb, changes. I enjoy playing Cotton Tail or Oleo when I want to call out a "changes" tune in Bb.

    No, but Humphrey Lyttleton's band was playing it in 1956:
