I don't even know where to start with Crouch's comments.

I suppose I could begin by objecting to the characterization of Monk's technique as "decidedly Afro-American." If anything, his technique is decidedly sui generis. Nobody, Afro-American or not, ever sounded like that before. Or since.

Which completely negates the already tenuous connection to plunger mutes.
