More Jazzmatazz

Guru (1995) Jazzmatazz Volume II The New Reality

This album might not have quite as much jazz-rap power as the first volume did, but it's still quite good. Some big names of jazz found their way into the album, including Branford Marsalis, Freddie Hubbard, Ramsey Lewis, and Kenny Garrett. Kool Keith also makes an appearance. Dancehall reggae princess Patra is included on a track, as are Chaka Khan and Me'Shell N'Degeocello; Jamiroquai helps out in another. For someone interested in jazz-rap in general, the first album is a higher priority, but this album is still high on the list.

gotta admit ive never been big on these albums.. but then again ive never been big on Guru at all...

I think Us3 are a much better jazz fusion...

A lot of people don't like guru, I've heard many times that his voice and style are boring, but I think I fit perfectly with those jazzy beats.

US3 are dope too, also a group that should get more attention.
