This book is about New York City subway musicians. It explores who these individuals are and what motivates them to perform in an urban space that was not designed with their activity in mind. This book is, moreover, about New York City music, an urban ritual that challenges the way we think about public space by promoting spontaneous, democratic, intimate encounters in one of the city's most routinized and alienating environments. Ms. Tanenbaum has the right descriptive powers to convey the various talents of subway musicians, as well as the sensitivity to capture their plight for artistic voice and continued cultural impact in a city full of politics that pushes them out.

A community activist details the culture and conflicts of New York subway music, from bucket-drummers to city bureaucrats. Urban centers must constantly renegotiate the fuzzy boundary between freedom of speech and public nuisance, outdoor art and disturbance of the peace. In this exhaustive and disappointingly academic study, Tanenbaum begins by locating subway music in its cultural and political context, but as music underground is a relatively young phenomenon, this background becomes an incomplete history of street entertainment in New York.

What a wonderful book and great idea to write about New York City's hidden or "underground" treasures. Ms. Tanenbaum has the right descriptive powers to convey the various talents of subway musicians, as well as the sensitivity to capture their plight for artistic voice and continued cultural impact in a city full of politics that pushes them out. Well done! We need more books like this. It would be great if we could have a sequel - in today's new arena!
