FEATURED NEW ARRIVAL: THE CREATOR HAS A MASTER PLAN

The Creator Has A Master Plan

If Trane is the Father then Pharoah Sanders is the Son. ‘The Creator Has A Master Plan’ is a Skoolwerk Apparel tee inspired by tenor saxophonist Pharoah Sanders who emerged from John Coltrane’s groups in the mid 60s. Sanders is an important figure in the development of spiritual and free jazz. Sanders is best known for ‘The Creator Has A Master Plan,’ a spiritual jazz epic with a very much needed message of peace and happiness. The 32-minute epic features vocalist Leon Thomas and pianist Lonnie Liston Smith and was released on the Impulse records label in 1969. Our Pharoah Sanders inspired tee is designed using the Impulse records signature colors.

The creator has a master plan,
peace and happiness for every man.
The creator has a working plan,
peace and happiness for every man.
The creator makes but one demand,
happiness through all the land.
– Pharoah Sanders

Love Byrd Tee by Skoolwerk Apparel

Liner Notes:

‘Love Byrd’ celebrates the work and legacy of trumpeter Donald Byrd. From hard-bop to jazz/soul/funk, Donald Byrd took jazz and jazz listeners to another space in the 70s and early 80s. In 1981 Donald Byrd along with his 125th Street, N.Y.C. band released the soulful, jazz-tinged “Love Byrd” LP produced by the legendary Isaac Hayes. By the late 90s “Love Byrd” became a highly sought after rare groove classic LP by DJs and rare groovers worldwide. By the 80s Donald Byrd had already transitioned from his hard-bop jazz roots to a more soul/funk groove. That transition and groove can be credited to his collaborations with the Mizell Brothers (Blue Note Records) in the 70s.

New Arrival – The Miles Quintet Tee

THE MILES QUINTET TEE AVAILABLE NOW!

The Miles Quintet

Liner Notes:

The Miles Quintet honors “The Second Great Miles Davis Quintet” (1964-68) consisting of Miles Davis (trumpet), Herbie Hancock (piano), Wayne Shorter (saxophone), Tony Williams (drums), Ron Carter (bass).  The Quintet’s approach to improvisation came to be known “time no changes” or “freebop,” because they abandoned the more conventional chord-change-based approach of bebop for a modal approach.

New Arrival – Red Clay 1970 Tee

Red Clay 1970Liner Notes:

RED CLAY 1970 was inspired by the soul-jazz-funk-fusion that became the Freddie Hubbard trademark sound as a CTI recording artist.  Freddie Hubbard’s Red Clay album was recorded and released in 1970 and was his first album on Creed Taylor’s CTI label. Red Clay marked his shift from Blue Note bebop to CTI soul-jazz-funk-fusion. The album would also define Freddie Hubbard’s music direction as a CTI recording artist for much of the 70s as well as set the template and the tone for all future CTI artists and recordings.
