Leroy Jenkins- violin,
Jerome Cooper- drums,
A 2002 reissue of an
obscure 1975 LP that came to my notice in our review hopper in 2007.
Though they almost bite
off more than they can chew on a nearly half-hour opener, the RE pulls
rabbits out of hats, defies gravity and goes way beyond the call of duty
to bring it home. There’s excellent improvising on the remaining two,
“hu-man” and “collegno.” The only bad thing that can be said is it’s not
up there with their A&M/Horizon record, which is like saying that K2
isn’t as high as Everest.
