Barry graduated from DuSable High School, where he studied under the storied Captain Walter Dyett, and in the early 1950s he became one of the most important members of Sun Ra‘s Arkestra, cutting numerous records with the band—including classics such as We Travel the Space Ways, Nubians of Plutonia, and Sun Song—before it left Chicago in 1961 and he stayed behind.
