In 2011 SHAOLIN JAZZ released a 3-song EP entitled The Gil Scott Suite, a tribute to the late Gil Scott Heron. Now, they’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.
To celebrate the launch of their EP, which drops Monday November 23rd, they'll be conducting a listening party in DC on Saturday November 21st.
Below are the event details:
- Saturday November 21st
