MC Guru (aka G.U.R.U., a backronym for Gifted Unlimited Rhymes Universal), has always rapped about jazz. From his Gang Starr collaborations with DJ Premier, the rapper evolved and began 1993 with his first release, Jazzmatazz. Nothing special here, but Donald Byrd's trumpet notes help to spice up the usual formula of verse-chorus-verse-chorus. This record is a good and necessary listen for anyone wanting to learn more about jazz and hip-hop recordings.
