As a cultural and political commentator, Stanley Crouch in unapologetically contentious and delightfully iconoclastic. no matter if he's writing at the specialty of the yankee South, the dying of Tupak Shakur, the O.J. Simpson verdict, or the wear and tear performed via the Oklahoma urban bombing, Crouch's high-velocity alternate with American tradition is performed with scrupulous allegiance to the reality, even if it hurts--and it always does. And almost about jazz--from Sidney Bechet to Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington to Miles Davis--there is not any another articulate, impassioned, and encyclopedic in his wisdom than Stanley Crouch.

Crouch methods every little thing in his course with head-on power, stressed intelligence, and a clean religion within the collective test that's America--and he does so in a virtuosic prose type that's by no means under exciting.
