This is the final of series of JCOA with solo leader. This time, leader is Leroy Jenkins.

Sounds like middle period of Stravinsky's orchestral music. Very skillful, taste of modern classic music, rather than jazz.

Side B is series of solos by each instrument and player. This is very unique.


3 commentaires:

  1. This item does not seem to be reissued as CD.
    Comparing works of similar taste (such as orchestral work of Anthony Braxton), this is well-composed.

  2. Thanks for the post.

    Waiting for the next
