We had a great guide -- a fun guy who made the best of this outdoor walking tour...It's a good tour if you don't know the area at all, and want some background...You listen to recorded music as you walk and he gives some history. It was adequate.

I highly recommend this to anyone interested in understanding the complexity and diversity of the city's unique musical heritage.
