Overview

"Stanley Crouch was an astute and keen observer of the many facets of politics, art, history, life in general, and most notably jazz. . . . He was multi-dimensional in how he looked at the world, but at the same time, opinionated as well. That’s to be expected and is part of the DNA of a great thinker."
—Charles McPherson, internationally acclaimed saxophonist

One never exited an encounter with Stanley Crouch, whether in person or on the page, through the same door by which one entered. Highly allergic to platitudes and off-the-rack ideas, he always made you think harder, and better, about your assumptions. If you are lucky enough to know his work or to have been his friend, you know. If not, this book is a perfect place to start.
—Tom Piazza
