The Olswanger family has given High Water Records of the University of Memphis the incredible opportunity to reissue Olswanger’s work. Dr. David Evans, professor of ethnomusicology, and Dr. Richard Ranta, founding dean of the College of Communication and Fine Arts, formed High Water Records as a way to preserve classic Memphis and Delta music for generations to come. Now managed by Ben Yonas, professor of music business, and his music industry students, the label continues to thrive and fulfill that purpose. Through the release of Berl Olswanger at the Piano, students studying the music industry have the opportunity to learn music marketing directly through an icon of Memphis music history, and pass on his work to a new generation.
