    1. An excellent review, even though slightly dated a new edition is needed Great and unflinching critique of Marsalis and the Young Lions, and excellent chapters on future jazz jazztronica, various homegrown varieties of glocal jazz and specifically the Nordic tone all among my favourite musics No, jazz is not dead at all, and even in the USA it has revived somewhat since this was published But it has gone through yet transformations in the last decade, of course which is the way it should be.

This book caught my interest, as it attempts to answer a question that I find myself asking often However after reading the following quote in the book by Stanley Crouch, I no longer felt it a necessary argument These Free Jazz people are not jazz musicians They may be improvisers and they may like jazz, but they are not jazz musicians A transvestite doesn t become a woman just because he puts on a dress and make up and walks like a woman When I read this quote, I realised that we re just fighti [...]


    3. In short, the author does a great job of picking apart just where jazz is going and how bad it really could get with no subsidized support amidst the art commerce dichotomy that jazz seems to incur Really enjoyed the thought process and the summation of what happens now.
