Annotation

Founded by Horst Weber and Matthias Winckelmann (who is still its president in the 1990s).
In 1986, the original Enja Records was split into two separate labels: Enja Records Matthias Winckelmann and Enja Records Horst Weber.
(See http://www.enjarecords.com/other.php?p=about and http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enja )

"enja" (which stands for European New Jazz Association) is correctly capitalized.
