Leroy Jenkins' Sting – Urban Blues. Label: Black Saint – 120083-2. Format: CD, Album, Reissue. Looking For The Blues.
Violinist Leroy Jenkins was at the helm of Sting, which played funky and free, did originals and vintage spirituals, and would shift from stretches of collective improvisation to challenging solo exchanges. They were a unique, intriguing group, but sadly didn't last. This 1984 album, reissued on CD, presented them at their best, displaying the breadth of influences, genres, sources and styles that converged and resulted in the work of a great band.
