“Rough Edges – Black” Goods + Apparel

Introducing our “Rough Edges” design which is inspired by our first logo which can be found on our first album that dropped in 2011.

The album cover (and logo) was designed by graphic designer Logan Mills who’s Wu-Note album covers (Wu-Tang album covers that he redesigned inspired by the album covers from the legendary jazz record label Blue Note Records) served as the inspiration for SHAOLIN JAZZ  To customize and purchase click here.

Sweet Nancy NYC Listening Party / Recap

Whenever we do SHAOLIN JAZZ events in New York, its always love and our Sweet Nancy NYC Listening Party was no different.  And despite us not having done an event in New York in a min, and some rain, the community (as in people walking in not knowing what was even taking place, but intrigued by our SHAOLIN JAZZ sign) in addition to family and friends – showed up making our listening party the kind of experience that we envisioned.

Thank you to Basquiat’s Bottle for hosting and all of your generosity, thank you to all of the artists who exhibited works giving our event that extra layer, much appreciated to everyone who attended, and props to everyone who helped spread the word.

#MYTUESISBETTERTHANYOURS

This month, Tues. May 22nd at Songbyrd, join us for our next edition of CAN I KICK IT? as we screen the cult martial arts classic Shogun Assassin.  Some might even consider this film to be a hip-hop classic as it was sampled and given prominence by one of the Wu-Tang Clan’s founding member’s GZA for his legendary debut album Liquid Swords.
