Legendary MC Guru and his partner Superproducer Solar are set to release a second LP, Jazzmatazz Vol. 4, on their very own label, 7 Grand Records. Vol. 4 of this groundbreaking series is entirely produced by Solar and co-produced by Guru. The album features special guests such as David Sanborn, Common, Bob James, Damian Marley, Bobby Valentino, Vivian Green, Blackalicious, Kem, Caron Wheeler (of Soul2Soul), and up-and comer Raheem Devaughn, among others.
To be sure, the new power duo Guru and Solar are going to be a force to reckon with in 2007. The pair founded 7 Grand Records and already have one critically lauded release, GURU Version 7.0: The Street Scriptures, under their belt. Since then, they’ve been touring in Europe, So Africa, South America, Japan and throughout the US to sold out crowds.
With a career that spans over a decade and 11 LPs deep, Guru has been able to stay relevant when many of his counterparts have faded into the background.
Born and raised in New York, Superproducer Solar is the sound of 7 Grand Records. Garnering respect of his own in hip-hop circles, this beat maker has produced tracks for acts like Talib Kweli, Jean Grae, Styles P., Jaguar Wright and B Real, to name just a few. Creatively complex or geniusly minimalistic, Solar is a complete producer.
Always maintaining the highest standard of excellence, Jazzmatazz vol 4 is just another in a long line of classic records from this dynamic duo to come.
