Coffy is a nurse by day and avenging angel by night. When she discovers that her little sister has been doped up - and freaked out - by a greedy drug pusher, she not only puts an end to his miserable days, but she vows to follow his trail of corruption up to the top. But what Coffy doesn't realise is that all is not what it seems - and that the leafy green behind the pushers' scene just may come from someone she knows.
After rhyming over Premier's doctored jazz beats in Gang Starr, Guru decided to take it to the next level, employing the talents of actual jazz musicians to create the grooves over which he would flow. Coming off like a jazzier extension of the Brand New Heavies' Heavy Rhyme Experience: Vol. 1, Jazzmatazz, Vol. 1 brought together a diverse group of jazz cats both old-school and new, including Roy Ayers, Donald Byrd, Lonnie Liston Smith, Ronny Jordan, and Courtney Pine. Guru even enlisted the serene pipes of Carleen Anderson and N'Dea Davenport and acted as something of an international hip-hop ambassador when he flipped "Le Bien, Le Mal" with French mic pro MC Solaar. From the Blue Note-style cover art to the hepcat spoken-word intro, this package is pure hip-hop jazz music. Jazz purists may wish to note that the grooves lean heavily toward the funkier 1970s era of jazz, and hardcore hip-hop heads my be turned off by the mellower musical stance. But then again, this is neither pure jazz nor hardcore hip-hop but rather an extension of the two. --Spence Abbott
Remastered digipak reissue of 1969 album. A seminal figure in the New York Jazz scene of the 1960's and 1970's, the flautist's quest for authenticity led him to many corners of the musical world. Recorded in Memphis, with Roy Ayers, the young vibraphonist who would make his own mark of the jazz-funk landscape in the 70's with Ubiquity, Larry Corryell and Sonny Sharrock, two outstanding rock-inclined guitarists, and backed by the Memphis Rhythm Section, this album sounds soulful to the core.
