Jazzmatazz Volume 1
Label: Chrysalis\EMI Records (USA)
With his street-conscious gansta lean, Guru is truly a pimp for combining jazz, soul and hip-hop. Released in 1993, this former Gangstarr emcee rejuvenated jazz with this genre blending LP. He opened the playing field with a variety of collaborations with top name artists of many generations and genres such as Donald Byrd, MC Solar, N'dea Davenport, Branford Marsalis.
