Vlad, rlc etal:

Unless I missed it, no one seems to have mentioned the very Dolphyesque solos by James Scales on the early Ra records. I talked with Scales many years ago and he denied any direct influence of Dolphy. It seems to me that a number of altoists during the fifties were independently trying to extend their Bird influence into freer territory; amongst these I would include Dolphy, Scales, Lyons, M Allen and probably Simmons.

This is true -- thanks for mentioning it.
