Actually Disc III, the Amsterdam Concert. 

I must admit one thing: One of the first records I had in my teenage days was the Paris Concert. 

I enjoy the Amsterdam stuff but I must admit that the Paris material is much stronger. 

And maybe it´s my fault, but I don´t really enjoy Johnny Coles´ trumpet that much. Somehow, he has a very thin tone and does not really fit into the unit of that most powerful giants like Dolphy, Jordan, Jakie Byard. 

But maybe he was very sick, since he collapsed on stage in Paris, so the Paris material was only the quintet without Coles. 

And the Amsterdam concert is not very well recorded, it´s much better sound quality on the Paris concert. 

Somehow, the "drive" is much more powerful in Paris.....

I like that one, a lot

It's a bit different to his other early ones, which tend to be more composed for want of a better word. To me, this record has the same appeal as classic 70s Braxton.

Now moved in to Leroy Jenkins' The Legend of Ai Glatson (Black Saint, 1978).

I reckon this might be the purest jazz violin (jazz fiddle?) record out there. I can think of lots of great jazz records with prominent violin solos or even lead violinist / composers (Billy Bang!), but it's hard to think of one where the pure improvisatory potential of a instrument is as central as on this record.

Ha, I am in complete disagreement on this one. I think Jenkins is really a mediocre violin player and a bad improvisor. Ugly tone, no dynamics, a lot of repetitive licks, no development in solos. Monotone.

As far as jazz violin is concerned that's the one for me:

Or in free improvisation realm:

I half agree. I never liked Revolutionary Ensemble or CCC much, and I would say that I don't really like Leroy Jenkins much overall.  That album though really hits me hard.

Just played this very good CD in honor of the late Norman Simmons who just passed away in the past few days.

This is the Leroy Jenkins album that hits me hardest:

Strange and wonderful.

 

Jenkins and Grappelli are apples & oranges.  ... Just because they're playing the same instrument doesn't mean that they're trying to do the same thing.

Thanks for the heads-up on this, Peter.  With your prompting, I'm listening to it now via YT.  Good stuff.  :tup
