Dear Guru

I seriously think that you should stop working with your "superproducer" Solar (at least on the Jazzmatazz series) and work with real Jazz musicians like you did on Vol. 1, also, you should feature real Jazz singers instead of crap like Bobby Valentino.

Thank you for your time.

I'm with you man!! its just so sad to see a great jazz hip-hop artist getting so low as the time pass. I'll try to listen to this one but im sure it will be the same as Jazzmatazz Vol. 3.

I didn't dislike it at all. It may not be the same as the 1st and 2nd ones, but it has it's moments.
Prefered tracks:

- Stand Up (ft. Damien Marley)
- Universal Struggle
- Infinite (ft. Blackalicious)

Kazeiro: Is this the clean version? The one i've got has Guru shoutin' out all over it...

I feel what you say about the "superproducer" Solar...

DeeMGenius said...

I agree with your letter. It doesn't sound jazzy, but I think this album is not bad. There are many worse than it this year:)

Kazeiro said...

cl - this version doesn't have any annoying promos

Yeah, but it's not a bad album, but Guru could have make it really better if he tried.

Good looking out Man!

I like this album it is excellent. Probably not the best Jazzmatazz but it is better than a lot album that i heard recently.
But one question , what the hell does this guy (Bobby Valentino) do in this guest list?

Peace!

well could some of you haters be any more vague?can you discuss music and art intelligently?...at all? let me supply the answer:sadly no.but you all sure do fill up a lot of space with nothing.it's questionable that you've even listened to the music at all...this is a beautiful album.listen to it, feel it, and all that other good s**t(stuff)-peace

Guilherme said...

Agreed. "Superproducer" Solar, seems like a shitty bug compared to Premier...

I really expect that Guru return to his jazzy style, which was really good, one of my favorite true undergound rappers.
