An original combination of funk, soul and jazz called "jazz, groove & attitude"

About Me

For over 20 years Under The Lake has delivered an original combination of funk, soul and jazz referred to as “jazz, groove and attitude”. SmoothJazz.com calls Under The Lake “effervescent, vivacious and all-together engaging.” The current line-up includes saxophonist Nat Caranto, bassist Kenny Franklin, drummer Jeff Jones, guitarist Frank Huston, and leader/keyboardist Jayson Tipp. Under The Lake's list of credits over the past 20+ years include three internationally distributed releases and live performances with a "who's who" list of jazz artists such as Joe Sample, Billy Cobham, Keiko Matsui, Stanley Jordan, and others. Under The Lake has received critical praise in local, regional, national, and international publications including JazzTimes, Jazziz, France's Jazz Hot, Canada's Exclaim, Germany's Cascade, as well as The New York Daily News, UTNE Reader, and The Music Paper. UTL received a four star rating for UTL's 1996 release "Up For Air" from the All Music Guide.
