Watch this great interview with Stanley Crouch instead
Thanks for the link. I'm a big fan of his from his Village Voice days through the Marsalis/Crouch jazz pedestal promoting and various miscellaneous videos/interviews. He always inspires me to measure my assumptions against his take on things. And rarely fails to provide at least one completely uncheckable or seemingly absurd point per article or interview. In this case, he said to Brian Lamb, something along the lines of "There hasn't been a smarter intellect than Barack Obama since at least 1900." He may have misspoke, or meant president specifically... who knows? Or that Obama is deficient by being all about rhythm 'n blues instead of jazz. I believe it, even if I'm not sure what it means. But his improvisational delivery and obvious chops has me hooked.
