Shaolin Jazz Presents: The Gil Scott Suite


“DJ 2-Tone Jones and I are proud to announce the latest musical installment of our SHAOLIN JAZZ project entitled The Gil Scott Suite, which is our tribute to the late Gil Scott Heron. This capsule project, which is a three track EP, also features album cover art designed by Shamona Stokes, the winner of the SHAOLIN JAZZ – Album Cover Design Contest.

As with our first release, I’m going to keep this short, but the story behind this one is that I’m a big Gil Scott fan (since my teens) and I normally don’t “feel” anything when most artists, celebs, pass but when Gil Scott passed I definitely “felt” a since of loss (perhaps it was the hours listening to his work, that D.C. energy from his music, going to college with his son, or seeing one his last shows in D.C. at Blues Alley) and I spoke to 2-Tone a day later about the idea of doing a SHAOLIN JAZZ – Gil Scott inspired track, and he was down.”
