Tommy is also heard on The Book, Booker Ervin, Bethleham; Landslide, Dexter Gordon, Blue Note; Speakin' My Peace, Horace Parlan, Blue Note. When I recently saw the Blue Note doc on Bravo and they interviewed Tommy I said to myself "He doesn't look good" He was very thin and frial looking. The only time I saw him live was a number of years ago when he was playing in the Sun Ra Arkestra.
