Here's the great Leroy Jenkins solo concert from 1977, again courtesy of Iain.
who says 'this is a very beautiful concert..I'm happy to be able to share it'
Jenkins here weaves a dense tissue of free improvisation interpolated with rustic folk forms,quotes from hymns and the blues.. cascading ripples of plangent scrapping creaky euphoria.
it features a very simple, lyrical rendition of Billy Strayhorn's lush life..one of the best
an awe inspiring concert from the late under recorded and appreciated master, long overdue for a carefully remastered reissue.
recorded at Washington square church N.Y.C, on January 11 1977
