This wiki needs a jazz page. It will very likely grow. The name of this page is taken from Oakland-based Ishmael Reed's 1972, Mumbo Jumbo, which conjures "a centuries-old battle between two shadow forces: a group representing European institutional order and Jes Grew, a virus/movement/pleasure-seeking principle originating among black artists."
- What do you think that this Jes Grew is up to?
- It’s up to its Text. For some, it’s a disease, a plague, but in fact it is an anti-plague. You will recall, Black Herman, that in the past there were germs that avoided words.
