Description
 
No other American city has inspired more music than the Big Apple. This is the first book ever published on New York City songs, of which there are more than 1,000. For more than 250 years, composers have sought to capture the sounds, energy, & sophistication of New York life in song. This book serves as an introduction to the best-loved songs & most evocative music written about America’s premier city -- from Tin Pan Alley to Broadway, 52nd Street Jazz to Harlem Calypso, Bronx Latino to Greenwich Village Folk, & sophisticated uptown Cabaret to hard-driving, gritty downtown Rock. Author Nancy Groce, is a leading folklorist & ethnomusicologist. Includes full-color sheet music covers. 150 full-color illustrations. Beautifully designed!
