Avant-garde jazz violist and composer Leroy Jenkins co-founded the "Creative Construction Company" with Anthony Braxton.

As a music teacher in the Chicago public school system Jenkins was involved in the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians which spawned a new and vibrant form of improvised jazz.

Jenkins moved to New York in 1970 and formed "The Revolutionary Ensemble" trio.

He held residency at a number of top American universities which included Harvard, Brown, University of Michigan, Carnegie Mellon and Duke.

During his later career Leroy Jenkins gained recognition for music-theatre works including his collaboration with Ann T. Greene, "The Mother of Three Sons."
