Guru’s Jazzmatazz – State of Clarity (feat. Common)

“With this album in particular, the fact that the production is done by Solar is an even more contemporary statement,” says Guru. “It’s a futuristic sound,” says Solar, who studied the origins and social implications of jazz in America, which informed his production with a depth and richness that is unprecedented. “I’m forward thinking,” admits Solar, whose style references classics such as “Summer Breeze,” paying homage while still putting a subtle, soulful and modern spin on these songs—evoking an effect that is at once comfortable, soothing and familiar but also new, fresh and fly. Melded with Guru’s laid-back, cool and confident flow, it’s a complementary match of creative talent and wits that simply soars to new heights. Many talented friends also come through on Jazzmatazz Volume 4 to bless the record and be a part of its tradition. Slum Village, Common, Blackalicious, among many others lend their unique voices and styles to record. “Stand Up (Some Things’ll Never Change)” features Damian Marley, one of the joint’s stand out tracks that helps to set the whole project ablaze. All gets ignited when Jazzmatazz Volume 4 The Hip Hop Jazz Messenger: “Back To the Future.” hits streets early summer, 2007.
