Jazzmatazz Loungin

The X Label brings to you the Jazzmatazz Loungin T-shirt! This artwork beautifly combines the album cover of Guru’s Jazzmatazz Vol 1. and the song “Loungin.” “Loungin” is a single from the Jazzmatazz Vol 1. album featuring the gifted trumpeter Donald Byrd. *Comes in Black.                                 In 1993 Guru released Jazzmatazz Vol. 1. Guru decided to take music to new heights by utilizing the brilliance of actual jazz musicians to produce the sounds to rhyme too. He merges his potent and forever meaningfull rhymes with beats and instruments directly from authentic lounge jazz. The album fuses an assortment of jazz talents both old and new, including Donald Byrd, Lonnie Liston, Roy Ayers, Courtney Pine, Branford Marsalis , and Ronny Jordan.  He used the melodic voices of Carleen Anderson and N’Dea Davenport and collaborated with french rapper MC Solaar. The variety of guest artists adds diversity and originality to each track, and gives the album a distinct jazz feel. In its own right the album is a historical document of jazz and hip-hop starting to blend.
