"WHAT A LUXURY FOR A PERSON WHO DOES NOT UNDERSTAND THE INTERNET, NOR EVEN OWNS A CELL PHONE, TO HAVE HIS OWN DEDICATED "WEBSITE" FOR HIM AND HIS PRODUCTS. IT IS CALLED BURGUNDYSTREETPRESS.COM
The first thing offered is the wonderful book 'The Fabulous George Lewis Band, The Inside Story' which I co-authored with Nick Gagliano, George's friend and manager. There is also 'Seems Like Old Times', a CD I made with two old friends, Orange Kellin & Freddie John, and three new friends, Marla Dixon, John Dixon, and a great young (unamplified) bass player, Tyler Thomson. I highly recommend it if you like the old style of New Orleans Jazz.
Since I wrapped up my work "American Music" for George Buck, many have asked "What about your own tapes, don't you have rare titles?" Thus, I have decided to re-open "M.O.N.O" Records. In a couple of months I will be issuing a couple of extremely rare CDs featuring items that I have had in my collection for years. There will be a CD of music by Creole George Guesnon, that Bill Russell and I have recorded, a CD of rarities by such artists as Wooden Joe Nicolas, Raymond Burke, Alvin Alcorn, Alphonse Picou, and the George Lewis Band. None of this material has ever seen the light of day. Also, I have pristine recordings of my old band in England with such artists as Alton Purnell, Louis Nelson, Kid Sheik, John Handy, and Don Ewell.
