Jazz Critic Stanley Crouch Death – Dead | Obituary – Passed Away

Stanley Crouch Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Stanley Crouch.

Stanley Crouch himself once acknowledged he “wasn’t much to look at.” However, as one who was a fan, I always considered him a HELLUVA READ!

Stan was a jazz/literary giant. If you’ve never read any of his stuff — music reviews or social commentary…I encourage you to ‘Google’ him and check the brutha out!

I often disagreed with what Crouch wrote, but always admired the way he wrote it. To me, he was one of America’s true ‘thought leaders!’

R.I.P.

I always loved it when Stanley was in the audience at the Vanguard, his presence heard and felt with excitement and danger. Blessed we were to have known him in person and he was as u say warm hearted and had so much love for the real music and history. RIP Stanley Crouch! VIA

Another seasoned veteran has left us this year. Although controversial, his intelligence was undeniable. Thanks to @ethan_iverson for writing this article. R.I.P. Stanley Crouch

Sad to hear of the passing of Stanley Crouch. I remember as a teenager buying Wynton Marsalis’ Standard Time albums when i could afford them, and being stunned that someone could write about music in that way…always excited to read his liner notes before the CD went on!!

So sorry to hear the news about Stanley Crouch, the hugely eloquent jazz critic and public intellectual. He had many writer-friends and made us all feel that things were looking up for us. Victory is assured, he liked to say. R.I.P.

Sad to learn of the death of a great critic and intellectual, Stanley Crouch. Rebecca @platobooktour and I were fortunate to have had a lively dinner with him not long ago – he was an appreciator of Spinoza.

The passing of Stanley Crouch makes me sad. From him, I enjoyed both my greatest compliments and endured the most scathing, painful criticisms. If you allowed yourself the opportunity, you came away from each conversation with him more curious and therefore, a bit smarter. RIP

Rest In Peace Stanley Crouch. I’ll miss our conversations in the back of the Vanguard or Dizzys at the end of a performance. Thank you for sharing your knowledge & opinions with me..and for listening to my opinions & letting me borrow Charlie Parker records. You helped me grow.

So sad to hear that my friend and mentor Stanley Crouch has passed away at 74. Crouch was a jazz drummer who became a peerless writer about jazz, the music he loved and championed.

Stanley Crouch, the lauded and fiery jazz critic, has died at age 74. His engagement with American culture spanned more than five decades and numerous mediums.

My education in black criticism has three leading figures: Michele Wallace, Greg Tate, and Stanely Crouch. The last departed the living today. His life and work expressed a love of jazz whose purity was marvelous. I owe a lot to this supreme love. #StanleyCrouch

Stanley Crouch, pugilist critic and jazz advocate, had a tough go of it the last several years, and especially the last several months. But if you ever got to know him, even just a little, a part of you believed nothing would ever take him down. Alas, today was the day. #RIP #VIA

Irascible, brilliant, challenging, uncompromising,culturally astute,humorous, purposeful, superior intellect, unorthodox sweetness, mentor, griot, an American poet, music, & cultural critic; syndicated columnist, novelist, and biographer, and beloved friend Stanley Crouch is dead

Influential critic and columnist Stanley Crouch has died at age 74. The self-taught Renaissance man’s prose, a blend of high art and street talk, was inspired by his love of blues and jazz. He was known for his impulse to step over the line.

Heartbroken to hear Stanley Crouch died. I met him in 2000 at the historic Elaine’s with my mentor Melvin Jules Bukiet. He decided I was smart & for many years I was one of the young people in NYC who he regularly would call up wondering what I thought of his latest work.

#Stanleycrouch helped shape me as a writer, he showed me his version of being a public figure, and he taught me about jazz. He told me that when he was a kid he stayed in the house so much the neighbors didn’t realize his fam had another kid. He was reading, reading, reading.

Having heard about this great loss, the family of this individual is passing through pains, mourning the unexpected passing of their beloved.

This departure was confirmed through social media posts made by Twitter users who pour out tributes, and condolences to the family of the deceased.

We are still working on getting more details about the death, as a family statement on the death is yet to be released.
