The Revolutionary Ensemble was a free jazz trio consisting of violinist Leroy Jenkins (1932–2007), bassist Sirone (1940–2009) and percussionist/pianist Jerome Cooper (1946–2015).

The trio was active from 1971–1977 and has been described as "one of the most crucial outfits to form in the decade",[1] and reunited in 2004.[2] At the time of their formation, Jenkins had been a member of the Chicago-based Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians (AACM). Sirone had performed with Pharoah Sanders, Marion Brown, and Gato Barbieri, and Cooper had been with Rahsaan Roland Kirk.
