Music Downtown: Writings from The Village Voice
"This is an indispensable piece of living history, documenting an absolutely crucial moment in the development of 21st century music. For many of these pieces and composers, Gann's discussion is the only record we have. The criticism is at the highest level: careful yet uncompromising, historically informed, erudite, and well-expressed."--Robert Fink, University of California, Los Angeles
"A highly intelligent and vividly engaged depiction of the new music scene over the last several years. The music Gann discusses is some of the most important being produced today, as well as the least attended to by scholars and the media. The 'you are there' feel of these articles conveys the intellectual and artistic rigor behind the music, as well as the passion and commitment of its makers. The writing is polemical, emotional, advocatory; Gann is often provocative, and always honest and forceful."--Evan Ziporyn , Professor, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Clarinetist and Composer, Bang On A Can All-stars
"The late 1980s and the 1990s were probably the most contentious years in the history of American music, especially in New York. The Soho News had folded. The New York Times had opted out. During this time, Kyle Gann was consistently the most interesting, reliable and honest reviewer in all of New York. Everybody read him. Probably every composer mentioned in this book would want to "correct" what has been said about her or his music. But you can't argue with Kyle. His opinions are too deeply felt. He is too well-studied. He writes too well. And he is too smart."--Robert Ashley, Composer
"No one else could have written this marvelous book. No one else has been so completely immersed in "new music" as has Gann for some twenty years--and moreover likes it. No other music critic is so courageous, communicative, compelling, and candid (if now and then contentious)--or writes such consummately crystalline, convincing prose. Hurrah! Huzzah!!"--H. Wiley Hitchcock, Distinguished Professor of Music emeritus, CUNY, and founding director, Institute for Studies in American Music at Brooklyn College

Review: Music Downtown: Writings from the Village VoiceUser Review - Goodreads
Excellent. I very much agree with Gann's aesthetic and philosophical positions. Required reading for making sense of the new music scene of the 80's and 90's.
Review: Music Downtown: Writings from the Village VoiceUser Review - John - Goodreads
Gann covered the NYC downtown art music scene for the Village Voice at a time of great upheaval and change (mid-'80's to early '90's). These pieces represent some of the best writing about American music of this time. For the obituary of Julius Eastmen alone, this book is worth the price. Read full review
