SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE
Overall, SHAOLIN JAZZ, including the development of this particular extension, has been very organic – from the start with us having no real plan, to releasing a series of creative projects which we felt just made sense, on into this latest foray.
Originally, SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE was simply going to be a two song single featuring live versions of some of the tracks from the album and during its production 2-Tone and Biscuit Bynum (one of the co-founders of Sound of the City – the band that performed the live tracks, of which 2-Tone is also a member) discussed the potential of doing a live show, as the tracks came out solid and Biscuit had a strong relationship with Blues Alley, an esteemed jazz venue in Washington, DC. After a few months of emails, impromptu meetings, and phone calls Blues Alley hit us with a date making this our 1st ever live performance at one of the nation’s most legendary jazz spots.
