A groundbreaking meeting of musical icons – with veteran jazz greats, a couple of then-young guns, and one of the MCs who helped bring jazz into hip hop in the first place! Jazzmatazz bridges both stylistic and generational boundaries in incredible ways, not only an earnest effort by Guru to pay heartfelt tribute to heroes, but to show his own and subsequent generations its the vitality and longevity jazz music – with a lineup that includes Donald Byrd, Roy Ayers, Ronny Jordan, Lonnie Liston Smith, Carleen Anderson, N'Dea Davenport and MC Solaar. 12 tracks in all, including "Slicker Than Most", "No Time To Play", "Loungin", "Sights In The City", "Le Bien, Le Mal", "Transit Ride", "When You're Near", "Down The Backstreets", "Respectful Dedications", "Take A Look At Yourself" and "Trust Me".

MedlinePeople Make The World Go Round ... CD
Melting Pot (Germany), 2013. Used ... Just Sold Out!
A contemporary riff on benchmark 70s soul jazz and funky fusion from French producer Medline – who reimagines classics by Roy Ayers, Lonnie Liston Smith, Joe Henderson, Freddie Hubbard and others! It's good, solid stuff – reinterpreting the material in a way that's very mindful of its influence on classic hip hop – with some tighter beats and other nods to classic 90s hip hop production – but it's done with an emphasis on live instrumentation that's pretty great! Medline plays most of the instruments himself, with lots of Afro percussion and jazzy flute – with guest vocals on a number of tunes by Roni Alkekengi. Includes "A New Day", "People Make The World Go Round", "Wind Parade","Expansion" and "Everybody Love The Sunshine" with Roni Alkekengi, "Eboness", "Red Clay" and more. CD

✨✧ Dwight TribleLiving Water (original pressing) ... CD
Oasis Of Peace, 2004. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Incredible work from Dwight Trible – a soul jazz vocalist with timeless approach – one that recalls the glory days of the 70s indie scene, and some of our favorite recordings by Leon Thomas, Andy Bey, and Joe Lee Wilson! Dwight's probably better known for his work on the Build An Ark project – and is an associate of the west coast soul jazz underground that has really been turning out some wonderful recordings in recent years. This album's kind of a mellower take on the sound of the Build An Ark record – centered around Dwight's deeply soulful vocals, and featuring jazz-based instrumentation from a range of players that includes Adam Rudolph, Harold Land Jr, Derf Reklaw, and Bobby West. Many of the tracks have a laidback spiritual feel that's sort of like the floating mellow mid 70s work by Lonnie Liston Smith – and Dwight himself penned the lyrics to most tunes on the set – which include versions of Bill Lee's "John Coltrane", Wayne Shorter's "Footprints", John Coltrane's "Wise One" and "Africa", and Abdullah Ibrahim's "Ishmael". Also features a great version of Andy Bey's "Celestial Blues"! (Vocalists, New Grooves) CD

✨✧ Kamaal WilliamsReturn (180 gram pressing – with bonus download) ... LP
Black Focus, 2018. New Copy ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The first solo project from Kamaal Williams – and a wonderfully spiritual set that has the keyboardist really blowing us away with his talents! Williams plays plenty of Fender Rhodes on the set, mostly in a trio setting, but one that's far from standard jazz – as the rhythms often reflect his roots in hip hop, although played live by drummer Joshua McKenzie and bassist Pete Martin – who also have the ability to send Williams soaring to the skies with this magnificent spiritual energy! Consider this set to maybe be a Lonnie Liston Smith album for the hip hop generation – and praise Allah for Kamaal's mighty talents on the keys, and the sharp production skills of Henry Wu. Titles include "Salaam", "The Return", "High Roller", "Situations", "Rhythm Commission", "Catch The Loop", "Medina", and "LDN Shuffle". (Jazz, New Grooves) LP, Vinyl record album
