origin / title

The Library of Congress has a score for "Hat and Beard" in its Eric Dolphy collection for trumpet, bass clarinet, bass, piano and drums, entitled "L. Phayo's E; L. Onyx S." On November 20, 1962, Dolphy and his quintet took part in an event at Town Hall, New York, which featured both music and poetry by the female Philadelphian poet Ree Dragonette, reading from her book "Like Pharao's Eye, Like Onyx Stone".The poem by the same title is dedicated to Thelonious Monk in her original.
