Its called Subway Songs and its by a group called the Metta Quintet.
The groups drummer, H. Benjamin Schuman, says he wanted to honor the Big Apples subway because it manages to crowd more than 7 million mostly tolerant and highly diverse people into a limited space with relatively few incidents per day.
Schuman says thats the real inspiration behind the albums seven subterranean compositions.
One hundred percent of the CDs proceeds will benefit arts education, though he gives New Yorkers high marks for their art appreciation, especially how they tolerate those without much obvious musical talent performing at the various subway stations.
He adds: Even the most pathetic problems or social ills are expressing themselves on a subway train and theyre not threatened.
