Crouch is at his poetic best conjuring jazzmen like Ellington, Parker, and Monk

Crouch is at his poetic best conjuring jazzmen like Ellington, Parker, and Monk. Here he is elegant and confident, a masterful guide to the artistry of blues and swing. He excels too, in his nuanced look at the novels of Albert Murray, where he probes the crucible of race and the ""bass clef of American life"" in the South. However, when Crouch is glib, most often in his Daily News riffs, he bludgeons the obvious with slangy diatribes, offers muddled, vague analyses, and takes flimsy swipes at pet peeves such as ""liberal racism"" and ""Affocentric types.

  As a cultural and political commentator, Stanley Crouch in unapologetically contentious and delightfully iconoclastic. Whether he is writing on the uniqueness of the American South, the death of Tupak Shakur, the O.J. Simpson verdict, or the damage done by the Oklahoma City bombing, Crouch's high-velocity exchange with American culture is conducted with scrupulous allegiance to the truth, even when it hurtsand it usually does. And on the subject of jazzfrom Sidney Bechet to Billy Strayhorn, Duke Ellington to Miles Davisthere is no one more articulate, impassioned, and encyclopedic in his knowledge than Stanley Crouch.   Crouch approaches everything in his path with head-on energy, restless intelligence, and a refreshing faith in the collective experiment that is Americaand he does so in a virtuosic prose style that is never less than thrilling.

Stanley Crouch i Respect his Mind.but i don't agree with alot of the things he says.he is a trip.i guess i will always have issue at some of the things he once said about Miles Davis after the 60's.Mr.Crouch likes to group things.he is a very Intelligent Man but he can go all over the place&leave you hanging.these essays are interesting.I don't agree with his thoughts on Michael Jackson nor Malcolm X.deep down he probably would love to trade places with them.folks he seems to always have an issue with are Free Spirits.hint,hint.

You may not agree with the temperture of his writing, but you will not soon experience anyone who writes greater force and beauty.

After reviewing some of Stanley Crouch's essays in Always in Pursuit, my feelings is that this Brother is either confused, ill informed, or probably the superlative individual suffering from Narcissistic Personality Disorder. I find his grandiose style in certain areas of African-American History highly annoying and distorted. It is apparent this Brother requires excessive admiration from those that would cross the street or call the police if he was changing a tire in their neighborhood.
Stanley's piece regarding Blues for Three Widows is the epitome of a one-sided narrow-minded view of the struggles and tribulations of Sisters King, Evers-Williams and Shabazz. Their sacrifices are un-questionable. Their husband's views, beliefs, and practices are the essence of the true American Constitution.
In this and other essays Stanley places America and its citizens in this, "one for all and all for one" melting pot. However, American has never been a melting pot. America is a bottle of oil, water, and vinegar, one sitting on top of another, every now a then being shaken by a King, Evers, or Shabazz.

In this collection of essays the brilliant Stanley Crouch comes off a lot like your grouchy old uncle who hates everything. This may put you off but keep reading because a lot of what he's saying is true. Miles Davis did turn out scholk ablums in his later years, much of what passes for black comedy is half a step from the old mintrel show and the O.J.Simpson case was lost becuase the prosecution did a lousy job.
Crouch takes know prisoners and spares no one's feelings. If he loves something he says so and if he thinks someone is a fool he says that too. You'll smile, you'll be offended and you might hurl the book down in anger but read it. Mr. Crouch has an interesting mind, something that is sorely lacking in much of our media figures today.
