Guru Jazzmatazz, Vol. 4
- Words: Jesse Serwer
- Label: 7 Grand
While most people would prefer a new Gang Starr record, Guru has instead returned with another installment of his Jazzmatazz project, this time with Solar (who produced Guru's recent Version 7.0) at the boards. Unfortunately Vol. 4 is concerned with reviving the Jazzmatazz name, not necessarily with preserving the legacy and feel of the classic first installment. There's a lack of collaborations with actual jazz artists, and the ones that do appear seem kind of haphazard: Instead of Roy Ayers we get David Sanborn. While there are some great tracks here, the point appears to be somewhat missed.
