DISCOGRAPHY l UOU's WEBSITE

 

 

UoUís debut album Home is comprised of ten impressive original compositions that fuse elements of Japanese inspired melodies, along with American jazz rhythms and harmonies.  This creates something truly special, honest and powerful. It had been a long journey for all five talented young musicians and composers from their start in Japan.  They first arrived in the U.S.A. to study at the Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts during the late 1990ís and early 2000ís.  Upon completion at Berklee, the members of UoU moved to New York City, and individually began working with top artists on the scene including:  Aaron Parks, Mark Turner, Gretchen Parlato, Walter Blanding, Rodney Green, Marcus Printup, among many others, before they formed UoU in early 2008. Having listened to the maturity, cohesiveness, and talent of UoUís debut album, we will definitely be hearing and seeing much more of UoU in the future.  They have traveled long and far to learn how to play this American art form authentically.  Not only have they succeeded in playing the jazz tradition, but they have infused elements of their homeland to create something entirely new and magnificent.
