    Music of New York City - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
    The music of New York City is a diverse and important field in the world of music; no American city has as central a place in music history as New York City. It has long been a thriving home for jazz, rock and the blues, and is the birthplace of hip hop. The city's culture, a melting pot of nations from around the world, has produced vital folk music scenes such as Irish-American music and Jewish klezmer. Beginning with the rise of popular sheet music in the early 20th century, New York's Broadway musical theater and Tin Pan Alley's songcraft, New York has been a major part of the American music industry.[1]
    Music author Richie Unterberger has described the New York music scene, and the city itself, as "(i)mmense, richly diverse, flashy, polyethnic, and engaged in a never-ending race for artistic and cosmopolitan supremacy".

    New York has been a center for the American music industry since the earliest phonograph records in the early 20th century. Since then, a number of companies and organizations have set up headquarters in New York, from the Tin Pan Alley publishers and Broadway to modern independent rock and hip hop labels, non-profit organizations and others. Many music magazines are headquartered in New York, including Blender Magazine, Punk Magazine, Spin and Rolling Stone.

    TONY(Time Out New York) Magazine's Greatest New York Musicians of All Time.

    New York is America’s first city when it comes to music, so drawing up a list of the 50 greatest New York musicians ever seemed like a logical thing for TONY to do. But what makes a musician great? And for that matter, what makes them a New Yorker?
    Determining greatness is both easy and complex. Influence, innovation, sheer aesthetic brilliance—and the context of the times in which an artist brings those protean qualities to bear—all played a major part in our discussions, debates and arguments (oh, there were a few, but thankfully, TONY covered the hospital bills).
    Deciding who is and who isn’t a bona fide New Yorker was a trickier endeavor, especially for jazz musicians, many of whom arrived in the city already armed with impressive résumés. Jazz may have been born in New Orleans, but it came of age, again and again, right here. As one general standard, we settled on a minimum five-year residence—but perception counted too. That’s why ultimately, with difficulty, we excluded Charlie Parker, who despite having his name on Avenue B, is claimed by Kansas City. The same goes for John Coltrane, who identified more as Philadelphian than New Yorker. Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie each spent quality time here, but it’s hard to think of either of them as locals; both established themselves as genuine citizens of the world. The Strokes? Come on, we’re talking great here. Billy Joel—see previous comment (plus, all his auto accidents were on Long Island). Frank Sinatra, son of Hoboken, became a star in Manhattan—yet he makes you think of Las Vegas. And so on. On the other hand, the members of Public Enemy came together at Adelphi University on Long Island, but they channeled the lightning energy of New York City as few others have.
    In the end, that was the one universal trait for all the musicians on our list: Their music ripples with the unique power and attitude of New York. None of them could have been who they are anywhere else.—Mike Wolf, Music editor
