Description by OLDIES.com:
New York City has long been inextricably linked with music. A center for jazz, punk rock, street music, avant-garde, and all kinds of other styles, it resonates with the hustle of a city open 24 hours a day. Mike Evans takes the reader on a tour of this rich scene, from the coffeehouses of Greenwich Village, to the blue-collar angst of New Jersey, to the funked-out grooves of Harlem clubs. The book covers the five boroughs and adjacent suburbs, and contains a wealth of interviews with musicians, writers, poets, street performers, promoters, and others who have made the city a preeminent purveyor of good sounds. Insider tips on where to stay and eat, photographs, and a map indicating New York's music hot spots help visitors make the most of their trip.
