What does one get when creating a musical marriage between musical gems from an assortment of legendary jazz labels and an iconic Hip Hop group? Well, you’re about to experience Gerald Watson and DJ 2-Tone Jones‘ answer to that question. This is SHAOLIN JAZZ – The 37th Chamber. Thirteen carefully crafted tracks combining classic Wu-Tang Clan and Wu affiliated selections over some of the illest jazz songs and breaks you’ve ever or never heard. Musically and visually, SHAOLIN JAZZ embodies a unique mix of elements. 2-Tone steps into the role of producer by crafting the right jazz selections with the right vocals; cutting and mixing sounds and effects to create the right „feel“ where needed; and even sampling and lopping jazz tracks to create beats. Listen to this project and be reintroduced to the Clan from the land of Shaolin, but within the realm of Jazz. This is the 37th Chamber.
