The above Jazzmatazz promo pic by Thierry Le Goues for Empire Management was sent out by the Chrysalis/EMI publicity department in 1996 as part of the press package for GURU's Jazzmatazz Volume II The New Reality. That was the side project by Gang Starr's GURU (Gifts Unlimited Rhymes Universal) in which he collaborated with over 20 different talented artists including Donald Byrd, Ronny Jordan, Freddie Hubbard, Chaka Khan, Ramsey Lewis and Kool Keith. It's one of eleven photos in this latest installment of the 1990's Promo Pics Amoeblog series.
