Nue Ujima Enterprise

Collected Works Volume 1

Tony Brown; Lorna Moone; David Winborne

The CD features 11 original compositions, performed by Tony Brown alone on 6 tracks, joined by David Winborne on 2 and Lorna Moore on 3. Brown plays guitar and drums, and all 3 musicians play keyboard synthesizers. The album is a heavily/tightly produced instrumental package of smooth or new age Jazz compositions. Mostly the compositions are of the relaxing variety, although a couple aim for a funkier groove. It succeeds at what it seeks to be: the soundtrack to a tropical vacation, or a Jazz purist's nightmare of what might be heard in a dentist's waiting room.
