Inspired by Logan Walters' redesign of Wu-Tang Clan album covers in the style of classic Blue Note Records album covers, Gerald Watson teamed up with his friend DJ 2-Tone Jones to create Shaolin Jazz - the 37th Chamber ™ a Wu-Tang-meets-jazz mixtape which matches vocals from the Shaolin members with sounds from classic jazz records. NPR has published an extensive article on the Wu-Tang Clan/jazz music symbiosis which you should not miss. Watch the visual summary of the project above and download the entire mixtape here.
