Guru's sultry tone sits in the bed of warm musicianship like butter on toast, and this reissue means you can pick it up in pristine condition and hear it pouring out of those grooves.I didn't care much for the tracks where he takes a back seat, but overall it was a good listen, even the track with the French rapping sounded good.

It was my friend Carlos that gave me a home-recorded tape with some songs from the album, and I was amazed by its sound.

In the liner notes for Jazzamatazz, Guru explained, "jazz's mellow tracks, along with the haerd rap beat, go hand-in-glove with my voice. I very nearly opted for the MP3 download only on this and I'm so glad I didn't and instead went for the old fashioned CD. The variety of guest artists adds diversity and originality to each track, and gives the album a distinct jazz feel.
