Eric Dolphy

Eric did have a little contact with the Arkestra. In 1963, the Arkestra was playing at the Paradise (a gig that scarcely paid anything but got them a little more exposure than they'd had in New York up to that point). Eric used to come in and listen to Marshall Allen, so Tommy Hunter says. Hunter even claims that Marshall had some influence on Dolphy's style, but that was pretty much completely formed by 1963. By the way, Pharoah Sanders worked as a waiter at the Paradise. rlc
