French guitarist supreme U-Nam was born Emmanuel Abiteboul in 1970 (U-Nam is "Manu" backwards) and began playing guitar at age 12. As a teen he studied at CIM, the Paris-based jazz school, before becoming a sought-after studio musician by the time he was 20. He broke out on his own in 2005 with the album The Past Builds The Future, which included the European hit "I'm Only U-Nam," and made a few converts in the US for his George Benson-influenced playing that mixed traditional jazz elements with a modern, urban sound.
