R.I.P. Guru, a jazz lover, who created the hip-hop jazz (ex Gangstarr and Jazzmatazz)

The 19th of April 2010, the hip-hop rapper Guru (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guru_(rapper)), legend of the hip-hop jazz, passed away at 43 after a battle against the cancer

I took him photos in August 2009 in Geneva, Switzerland during the Festival Musiques en Ete I had too some words with him, he was kind, gentle and was a jazz lover. Below the photo you can hear a tune he recorded with Branford Marsalis. He had as jazz guest on some cd's jazz musicians as Herbie Hancock, David Sanborn, Brownman, ...

I posted already some monthes ago a photo I took to him with the trumpeter Brownman ( http://juancarloshernandezjazzphotographer.blogspot.com/2009/07/guru-and-brownman.html )

RIP Guru ..

Juan-Carlos Hernandez

Juan Carlos ta Photo restera Ancrée pour la Postérité & Guru semble adresser une dernière prière à l'au- delà pour que Jamais ne s'éteigne sa Voix...

Quel Aura cette Photo ! InCroyable !
