unissued The quintet performed, followed by recitations by Dragonette, an intermission, then Dragonette read, and then she alternated with the quintet. She doesn't perform simultaneously with them, however. This GW is excellent, though marred by a glitch at the end of Dolphy's solo. The duet (To Tonio, Dead) is certainly interesting, and the final piece, Song for the Ram's Horn, is a definite find, based largely on a 5-note theme. Nice to have another soprano clarinet performance as well. This was an early public performance of Hat and Beard, perhaps inspired by one of Dragonette's poems that mentioned Monk.
