"...his economical writing style ... manages to pack lots of information - and opinion - into a few carefully chosen words ... Besides detail work well-grounded in scholarship...the author isn't afraid to interpolate such generalizations and speculations as he sees fit; he may be the Stephen Hawking of jazz criticism." - Bob Tarte, The Beat

Review:

Norman Weinstein has crafted a valuable work that, with its adherence to scholarship and careful analysis stands as the most successful attempt to address the enduring influence of African imagination on American Jazz. Norman Weinstein has written an animated and intelligent examination of what in American jazz reflects African origins and imaginings. He lets the text develop naturally, with sound scholarship and psychological cunning. ... Weinstein cuts through the gristle to reveal the bone of racismand appropriation working in counterpoint to the authentic esthetic and cultural history of the music. This psychological approach with its debt to Jung and Bachelard, gives A Night in Tunisia compelling contextual depth lacking in most jazz scholarship.- Joseph Murphy, Earshot Jazzz Jazz Now ...intriguing...points the way for further discussions of jazz from a strategy of textual interpretation... The IAJRC Journal ...he may be the Stephen Hawking of jazz criticism...a fascinating book...an extremely valuable overview of the music... The Beat (UK) clever and entertaining...not just for students of jazz. Multicultural Review ...a book of both keen scholarship and fine tribute...exceptional... Morning Star ...may interest serious jazz fans-if only so they can argue with it.
