Why did this columnist and so many others leap to assumptions about Kerouac if the ideas weren't in the words? Leland leaves the questions about the possibility that those messages were present on the subconscious level and thereby more effectively communicated, to other future critics-analysts.

After reading Leland's book, a re-read of "On the Road" seems quite likely.

"Why Kerouac Matters" doesn't have an Index. (Boooo!) Somewhere in the book, didn't Leland mention a jazz composition titled "Kerouac"? Without an Index, that fact slips through the existentialist's time warp and disappears into the either. An Index would also help to determine which of George Shearing's tracks Kerouac liked and which he didn't because he thought they showed a new attitude of cool and commercial.

In "On the Raod," Kerouac wrote: "He said we were a band of Arabs coming to blow up New York."

Now, the disk jockey will play Dexter Gordon and Wardell Gray's "The Hunt," Prez Prado's "Mambo Jambo," and Slim Gaillard's "C-Jam Blues." It's time for us to bop out of here. Have a "Go moan for man" type week.
