…"...One of the few places in contemporary jazz where the direct and unassimilated influence of Cecil Taylor can be detected…. Jenkins is in stunningly good form…."
(source: The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD - Eighth Edition)

"Excellent session by dynamic violinist Leroy Jenkins, once part of the wonderful avant-garde trio The Revolutionary Ensemble. Jenkins cut this session in 1978, shortly after the trio's demise, and it's loaded with great violin solos, as well as some unusual, intriguing arrangements and compositions."
