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 hurts—and it always does. And almost about jazz—from Sidney Bechet to Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington to Miles Davis—there isn't any another articulate, impassioned, and encyclopedic in his wisdom than Stanley Crouch.
Crouch techniques every little thing in his course with head-on strength, stressed intelligence, and a fresh religion within the collective scan that's America—and he does so in a virtuosic prose variety that's by no means under thrilling.
