U-Nam is back with a new single, titled Make a Wish. Reminiscent of the stellar work U-Nam was doing back in the nineties with some of the biggest R&B acts around, but with the addition of silky strings to bestow a veneer that is both sophisticated and soulful, this exuberant slice of up-tempo smooth jazz is the perfect accompaniment to the long hot summer days to come.
He is front back and center with lead & rhythm guitars, bass, keyboards, horns, programming and editing. Not only that, he writes, produces, mixes and masters throughout while in the company of Raymond Gimenes, he concocts a sublime string arrangement that in the capable hands of Lyudmila Kadyrbaeva on cello and Maria Grigon violin and viola is a joy to behold.
Truth to tell U-Nam’s production touches are everywhere and when the picture is completed by Larry Salzmann’s tight percussion.
There is only one thing left to do, close your eyes, Make A Wish and let U-Nam transport you to that special place where a luscious, Motown style vibe meets instrumental smooth jazz in the most sensational of ways.
