Three Things to Say: Terry Jenoure, Billy Bang, Charles Burnham pay tribute to Leroy Jenkins

Three master improvising violinists pay homage to the most important violinist to emerge in the post-Coltrane era: the late Leroy Jenkins. A veteran of the bands of John Carter, Archie Shepp, Henry Threadgill and others, Bronx-born Terry Jenoure is a wide-ranging visual and performing artist, and curator of the Fine Arts Center's Augusta Savage Gallery. "From Billy Bang's violin comes everything we know about black music and a lot we have yet to learn about rhythm, subtlety and swing," writes Ntozake Shange. The passion and fire of Charles Burnham has graced the work of Cassandra Wilson, James Blood Ulmer, Steven Bernstein and Medeski, Martin & Wood.
