Recently we told you that Earl Scioneaux III, engineer for several Preservation Hall Jazz Band recordings, was profiled in a New York Times article for a project in which he is attempting to combine the disparate threads of Traditional New Orleans Jazz and Electronic Music. The project is called Electronola, and all of the funding for the project has come through fans who want to see the project through via a website called Kickstarter.com.
Well, the project is nearing completion. And now you can preorder your copy with customized extras! Just like the nontraditional means by which the project was funded, Earl and Kickstarter are offering varying packages of customized extras to patrons who are interested in preordering the Electronola recordings at varying levels of monetary commitment!
