Additional Videos & Music Coming Soon

 

The John Lewis Show DVD Series

The John Lewis Show aired successfully on Manhattan Cable television for nearly decade.  Each week the show’s host, John Lewis—a jazz percussionist, pianist, and composer—along with his co-host Ron Jefferson, presented an estimated 500,000 viewers with a half-hour of great entertainment featuring:

­ Internationally renown Jazz musicians.

­ Celebrated sports personalities.

­ Established local business owners.

While the show featured a broad cross-section of personalities, its focus was on jazz.  Many of the personalities interviewed were uncharacteristically candid giving the audience a seldom seen glimpse into the lives of the featured guests.
