Stanley Crouch bio: By Stanley Crouch:

    Stanley Crouch was born December 14, 1945 in Los Angeles, California. He attended East Los Angeles and Southwest junior colleges but has no degrees. From 1965 to 1967, he worked as an actor and a playwright under the direction of Jayne Cortez in both Studio Watts and the Watts Repertory Theatre Company. Performing in community theaters and on college campuses, the theater troupes toured Northern and Southern California. From 1968 to 1975, he taught at the Claremont Colleges, first as poet-in-residence at Pitzer, then as the first full-time faculty member of the Black Studies Center, and finally in a joint appointment to the BSC and the English Department of Pomona College. While in Claremont, Crouch wrote and directed ten plays.
    In the fall of 1975, Crouch moved to New York City and was soon writing for The Village Voice and The SoHo Weekly News. In 1979, he became a staff writer for the Voice and remained one until 1988. His writing has also appeared in Harper's, The New York Times, Vogue, Downbeat, The Amsterdam News,The New Republic, The Partisan Review, The Reading Room, and The New Yorker. He has served as Artistic Consultant for jazz programming at Lincoln Center since 1987 and is a founder of the jazz department known as Jazz At Lincoln Center. In 1988, Wynton Marsalis asked him to write a sermon for the recording The Majesty of the Blues. It appears as "Premature Autopsies." In 1996, making history, Jazz at Lincoln Center became a full constituent, the first time a major art center has given the music permanent status equal to the symphony orchestra, the ballet, the opera.
    His collection of essays and reviews, Notes of a Hanging Judge, was nominated for an award in criticism by the National Book Critics Circle and was selected by the Enclopedia Britannica Yearbook as the best book of essays published in 1990. Crouch has since appeared on a number of talk shows--Nightline, Night Watch, The Tony Brown Show, Oprah Winfrey, Charlie Rose, and others. In October of 1991, he was one of the recipients of the Whiting Writers' Award, an award given to "writers of exceptionally promising talent."
    In 1993, he was the recipient of both the Jean Stein Award from the American Academy of Arts and Letters and a MacArthur Foundation grant. A collection of essays, The All-American Skin Game, was published in the fall of 1995. In 1996, The All-American Skin Game was nominated for an award in criticism by The National Book Critics Circle. In the spring of 1996, he appeared as a commentator on 60 Minutes. The summer of that same year, he guest-hosted the Charlie Rose Show. Always In Pursuit, a book of essays, was published in 1998; the paperback, with two new essays, in 1999.  On April 25, 2000, his first novel, Don't The Moon Look Lonesome, appeared. In 2003, with Playthell Benjamin, he wrote Reconsidering The Souls of Black Folk. He has just finished his second novel, Dead Man Blues for Saber Tooth, which should appear in the fall of 2004.
    In addition to writing an editorial column twice a week for the New York Daily News, Crouch is currently writing the scripts for an eight-hour television miniseries.  He is also busy completing Kansas City Lightning, a biography of Charlie Parker which he has long been researching


Comments about the program by STANLEY CROUCH:
I have been asked to make some comments on the program and I would say of the iinterview that it was less pleasant than it turns out to be as a a viewing experience. At the time, I thought that we were going off on too many tangents that didn't really allow me to talk about things other than conceptions about society that were either naive or foolish when they arose in the so-called "counter culture" of the sixties. I am referring to cliched liberal-left "ideas" and cliches either about avant garde art or the people who make it. When the interview was not burdened by those things, it was pulled down by further cliches connected to men such as Norbert Weiners and Marshall MacLuhan. At that point, the "thoughts" about communications technology had, it seems to me, been exhausted--or should have been seen through--by 1980, even though Weiners and MacLuhan  did, now and again, give us some things to think about. So there you have my response. But you may see the program in a very different way than I felt iwhile the cameras were rolling. Here's hoping you have a good time.
