With this being the first ever live performance of SHAOLIN JAZZ I don’t think things could’ve worked out any better. Good weather, a legendary venue (Blues Alley), a very respectable turnout for both shows, amazing music from 2-Tone with Sound of the City, and our guest performers. And I must add, doing a live show was NEVER in our plan.
- RELEASE DATE TBA: The release of a two track single featuring live tracks from the album – SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE.
- Saturday June 9th: A panel discussion hosted by Capitalbop during DC Jazzfest. For additional info click here.
- Monday June 25th: SHAOLIN JAZZ L!VE – the 1st ever live performance of tracks from the SHAOLIN JAZZ – The 37th Chamber album. which will place at the legendary Blues Alley. The performance will be led by DJ 2-Tone Jones, the co-creator of SHAOLIN JAZZ, backed by his fellow band members of Sound of the City along with special guest artists. For tickets click here.
Its OFFICIAL! After about 3+ months SHAOLIN JAZZ – The 37th Chamber is done. This project has grown from just a “mixtape” to becoming, in my opinion, a full blown album and 2-Tone and I are developing a series of listening parties for DC, NYC, and LA.
Check out the flyer above for info regarding the first listening party which will take place in DC, Sat. March 26, at Palace 5ive – good lookin’ out Greg!
Went by Neal Becton’s (Som Records) place on Wed. to pick up the album covers for JAZZ, where I met his very cute family. Like most DJs (who also own record stores) his place is centered around music and he put some cool sounds which helped going through his 1000’s of jazz albums that much easier.
I’m not going to even mention the number of records he’s amassed in his personal collection – let’s just say that the pics only show a small portion.
