Jazz After Dark September 22 2020

Coming up tonight on Jazz After Dark.

Tonight’s program is dedicated to Stanley Crouch, legendary jazz critic who died September 16, 2020, at the age of 74. He wrote for the New York Daily News and the Village Voice, collaborated with Ken Burns on his Jazz mini-series documentary, and co-founded Jazz at the Lincoln Center with Wynton Marsalis.

We’ll hear from three jazz artists that he respected:

Duke Ellington (shown above), who Crouch described as “the greatest of all jazz musicians” in his column Duke Ellington: Artist of the Century from December 1, 1999.

Charlie Parker: Crouch wrote Kansas City Lightning: the Rise and Times of Charlie Parker over a thirty year period. He described Parker as “the self-made creator of a vital and breathtakingly structured jazz vernacular and an anarchic man of dooming appetites.”
