  16 February 1962 Birdland   390. The Inchworm (bcl) 7:14
391. Mr PC (as)
392. My Favorite Things (fl) 13:50
This is from Fujioka, who note it was another midnight broadcast from the 16/17th.


Dolphy comes in early on Inchworm on bass clarinet, accenting the melody. Symphony Sid Torin makes some prominent announcements between tunes, but Coltrane is barely heard. Mr. P.C. is particularly nice.
