Guru Signs Cullum And Melua For Next Cd
Hip-hop star GURU has signed a host of top British music stars including JAMIE CULLUM and KATIE MELUA to sing and rap on his long-awaited follow-up to 2000 album JAZZMATAZZ, VOL 3: STREETSOUL.
The former GANG STARR rapper enlisted chart-toppers ANGIE STONE, DONELL JONES, KELIS, CRAIG DAVID, MACY GRAY and HERBIE HANCOCK to appear on his last disc and is hoping to have another hit with JAZZMATAZZ: VOL 4, which combines jazz with hip-hop.
A music industry source says, "Guru's not had the change to work with many jazz musicians since doing the last album.
"But he's heard a lot of good things about the young jazz scene that's kicking off in the UK and has made contact with a lot of the big names.
"Guru's a huge fan of both AMY WINEHOUSE and Katie and LEMAR and Jamie are definitely going to appear."05/08/2004 02:59
