Mo' Betta Wu: Jazz from the 36 Chambers, starring Amanda Seales and arranged & composed by Kris Bowers
4.10.14

When eccentric legendary Jazz singer Karma Sapphire discovers a book of rhymes, she becomes engulfed in the life the lyrics portray. Falling in love with this faceless writer’s verse she is so moved by his story, she takes to the stage to share it through her first love – Jazz. What she doesn’t know, is the words of this mystery man are really the writings of the Wu-Tang clan, nine MCs hailing from Staten Island, NY, whose music and style has made an indelible impact on Hip-Hop culture the world over.

In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of the Shaolin crew’s seminal debut, Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers), comedian, entertainer, and DJ, Amanda Seales, brushes of her singing chops, starring opposite arranger/jazz virtuoso pianist, Kris Bowers, to bring you a theatrical jazz interpretation of some of the Wu’s greatest hits, in MO’ BETTA WU. From “Rainy Days” to “All I Need,” “Shimmy Shimmy Ya” and more, the duo has interpolated this masterpiece into standard form ranging from ballads, to boogies, to blues.

Accompanied by a band; Amanda weaves together nuance, classic Wu-Tang references, hit records, and humor, to create this unique performance that will intrigue any lover of Jazz, invigorate any fan of Hip-Hop, and inspire any supporter of true artistry. Where some argue Hip-Hop is not “real” music, here Seales and Bowers prove, indefinitely, that it is.
