  As a cultural and political commentator, Stanley Crouch in unapologetically contentious and delightfully iconoclastic. even if he's writing at the distinctiveness of the yankee South, the demise of Tupak Shakur, the O.J. Simpson verdict, or the wear and tear performed through the Oklahoma urban bombing, Crouch's high-velocity alternate with American tradition is performed with scrupulous allegiance to the reality, even if it hurtsand it always does. And as regards to jazzfrom Sidney Bechet to Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington to Miles Davisthere isn't any another articulate, impassioned, and encyclopedic in his wisdom than Stanley Crouch.

   Crouch techniques every thing in his course with head-on strength, stressed intelligence, and a fresh religion within the collective scan that's Americaand he does so in a virtuosic prose variety that's by no means below thrilling.
