Paul Motian/Enja Records

Styles:  Post BopFree
Formats:  CD

From its inception in 1972, Enja Records has presented individualistic, original artists expressing themselves in the constantly evolving language of jazz. Established masters (Ben Webster, Tommy Flanagan, Clark Terry, Junior Mance), founding fathers of the new music (Charles Mingus, Archie Shepp, Joe Lovano, Sun Ra) and the young lions of contemporary music form the core of the catalogue. Its new imprint Yellow Bird provides another platform for presenting the new, such as Marc Ribot’s genre-bending “Young Philadelphians” band.
