Just had a strange call from a listener that said thirty years ago in
Philadelphia he heard a cut on the radio that featured Sun Ra playing with
Fletcher Henderson. I read that Sun Ra played piano in Henderson's Chicago
Club De Lisa in the late forties but I told him that a Fletcher Henderson
recording with Sun Ra sounded unlikely.I think maybe the listener heard a
recording by Sun Ra of Henderson tunes, which would sound plausible. Any
thoughts?
