    Wow! An incredibly thorough, 450 page history of New York's various music scenes, ranging from Mario Bauza's arrival in 1927 and the ensuing latin, cubop and bebop movements of the thirties and forties, through the rock 'n' roll years, the folk revival, broadway, the underground gay, loft and garage scene, right up to the mid-seventies and CBGBs, punk, new wave and the beginnings of hip-hop! A huge undertaking, but the narrative flows naturally to encompass the areas, characters and social history that make New York the most diverse musical city of all.
