Piece Comment

Review of Music Man

Nice introduction to an aspiring musician. Good scene-setting, both in the subway and at open mic. Cuomo's music is fun to hear and catchy. I also love all of Cuomo's quotes, he sounds happy and bright - I'd like to meet him in person sometime. I felt the profile was pretty typical until the interview with Latch - a music executive. That made me feel more like I learned something useful, especially since I'm not near any subways. I also liked the ending where I learned that there's a committee that selects who gets to play in the subway. Who knew? I think this piece would be stronger if it were a little more condensed. Also, I might have liked to have the description of Cuomo at the beginning so that I could have pictured him more as he is during the whole story.
