Slicker Than Most

While his work with Premo veered in a harder-edged blue-collar rap direction, Guru took their old jazz-rap genre-bending to new levels on a series of solo albums, led by 1993's Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1. Over the course of the four Jazzmatazz projects, Guru broke down boundaries by collaborating with jazz innovators including Branford Marsalis, Donald Byrd, Roy Ayers and Ramsey Lewis.
