Shaolin Jazz-the 37th Chamber

posted May 9, 2013, 9:58 PM by Carolyn Desrosiers
Using a multi-platform approach, the Shaolin Jazz Project is an informative, yet entertaining medium that speaks to students about the connections and parallels between jazz culture and hip-hop culture. It is done, in part, through a multimedia presentation where video clips are screened, music clips are played and photos of vintage album covers are shown. Shaolin Jazz, the brainchild of Gerald Watson and DJ 2-Tone Jones, is a specialty mixtape project that has 2-Tone artfully blending the a cappellas of rappers from the legendary rap group Wu-Tang Clan with handpicked instrumentals from jazz greats.
