“Byrd Over Staten” / Single #1 / “Love & Heat”
In 2011 we released a 3-song EP entitled The Gil Scott Suite, a tribute to the late Gil Scott Heron. Now, we’re pleased to announce the next edition to the SHAOLIN JAZZ tribute series: Byrd Over Staton; an EP dedicated to the works of the late iconic Jazz musician and teacher, Donald Byrd. As with all previous releases, Byrd Over Staten is a conceptual project in which select songs and breaks from Donald Byrd’s vast collection of music are fused with lyrics and sound bites from the legendary Hip Hop group Wu-Tang Clan.
