Leroy Jenkins, Musica Elettronica Viva, and the “Peace Church” Concert
In 1969, saxophonist Anthony Braxton and violinist Leroy Jenkins were Paris-bound, joining an exodus of Chicago-based Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians members. While in Paris, friendships developed with Ornette Coleman who welcomed them to his New York loft Artists House upon their return to the United States. Braxton’s shared affinities with the improvisational collective Musica Elettronica Viva-- from John Cage to John Coltrane--led to a joint American tour. Braxton subsequently accompanied Miles Davis’s drummer Jack DeJohnette to hear Davis band members Chick Corea and Dave Holland with Barry Altschul at the Village Vanguard. This followed a concert in New York by Braxton, Jenkins and friends. After Braxton Braxton sat in the trio expanded to form Circle.
