Hi all,

A couple of bits of advice please. On Saturday (15th) my wife and I will be 
flying across the big pond to spend just under a week in New York drinking up 
the culture which we hope to find there. That is of course providing we can 
negotiate our way through the military circle at present surrounding Heathrow 

My wife is not a great lover of jazz, in fact she says, "It all sounds the 
same and is so boring." but I am hoping to catch some music in the 
traditional to mainstream styles whilst in the Big Apple. Any suggestions, 
please? We will be staying at the New York Helmsley on 42nd Street from 
Saturday 15th to Friday 21st and will be relying on public transport, taxis 
or feet to get us around.

Also our newspapers over here have carried a considerable amount of reportage 
 to the effect the the USA is in a state of panic and the citizens are 
battening down the hatches in preparation for a war against some Middle 
Eastern country or a threatened attack from al Quaeda or maybe North Korea. I 
hope the reports are embellishing the truth as usual and life in New York is 
pretty much normal. Any guidance?

Thanking you all in anticipation.
