DC: Shaolin Jazz L!ve at Blues Alley

In April of 2011 tastemaker Gerald Watson and DJ 2-Tone Jones released SHAOLIN JAZZ, a boutique music project in which acappellas of rappers from legendary rap group – Wu-Tang Clan – were artfully blended with hand-picked jazz instrumentals and samples. Since then the project received overwhelming acclaim both stateside and globally; and has manifested into a variety of extensions based in visual art, fashion, graphic design and education.
On June 25th SHAOLIN JAZZ will go on to the next level of its evolution; a live performance of the music. The performance will be led by the co-creator and musical architect behind SHAOLIN JAZZ, DJ 2-Tone Jones, making this the first DJ led performance at Blues Alley. Backing Mr. Jones will be his fellow band members from Sound of the City, along with special guest artists.
