Re: Hi Darlings

Trudy Morse was invited by Sun Ra to read his poetry with the Arkestra sometime in 1990, and read poetry to him during his several hospitalizations. Marshall Allen usually performed in duet with the poetry, with other Arkestra members coming in. For the past year she has performed with the Arkestra and other musicians, trying to keep the poetry alive.

Here's a strange, unpolitically correct question:

Did RA ever employ a female instrumentalist? I know that June Tyson was a major saturnite, much as Ivie Anderson was a major Ellingtonian, but did RA ever utilize a person-of-gender other than a vocalist or dancer?

Just curious.
