Dolphy sessions

Simosko and Tepperman's Eric Dolphy: A Musical Biography and Discography (1974) listed these tracks as coming from one of 5 separate sessions which occurred in late May-early June 1963. They noted: " Alan Douglas, the original producer of these sessions, states that they took place over five consecutive evenings in the spring of 1963. Master for the earliest issue of titles from these sessions, F-M 308, was done on 26 July 1963. The date given above for these recordings is suggested by the existence of a working Dolphy-Shaw-Hutcherson quintet in New York at that time." The sessions produced tracks featuring Dolphy in a variety of combinations, including Woody Shaw, Bobby Hutcherson, Eddie Kahn, Richard Davis, etc. This is of course a very old reference work by now and there may be more recent research that sorts out the Iron Man sessions... --David Wild
