Al Daniels

Al Daniels is an accomplished, well rounded artist and musician. While still in high school he won his first award for his musical talents. His classical performance on piano in the Young Musicians Competition (sponsored by Pepsi) won him a new piano and an appearance with the San Francisco Symphony. So, it was no surprise when he won recognition in the recent Jazziz Magazine Keyboards on Fire Competition for his original jazz composition "Intimate Pursuit". He was featured in the April 97 issue of that magazine. He was drawn to the piano at age 7, playing mostly by ear. After some formal lessons, he moved onto classical study with Bay Area pianist Jules Haywood

PC ENERGETIC

PC ENERGETIC is the international trio of award-winning guitarist Philip Czarnecki. It stands for a fat, modern and colourful sound. Modern jazz meets the sound-aesthetics and raw energy of rock and funk. This results in rocky and funky guitar-riffs, energetic improvisations and compositions, which are rich in rhythmic and harmonic complexity on the one hand and narrative and melodic on the other. Furthermore responsible for the powerful, yet multi-layered and versatile sound is bassist Jonathan Ihlenfeld Cuñado and drummer Marc Ayza. On their debut-album "Illusion" the band features renowned saxophonist Jasper Blom and the singer Rakel Salazar

Under The Lake

"Effervescent, vivacious and all-together engaging" is how smoothjazz.com describes Under The Lake's music, an original sound that Don Dilorio of the North Jersey Herald and News says "doesn't sit easy in any category, thanks to its heavy doses of funkified bass and occasional soul references." Keyboard player Jayson Tipp founded Under The Lake nearly 30 years ago. Over the past three decades Under The Lake has garnered many notable accomplishments across their first 4 releases: Dive In (1993), Up For Air (1996), People Together (2007) and Jazz, Groove & Attitude (2018). The band’s credits include live performances with a "who's who" list of jazz artists such as Joe Sample, Billy Cobham, Keiko Matsui, Stanley Jordan, and others with appearances at venues such as the PDX Jazz Festival, Cathedral Park Jazz Festival, Maui Music Festival, Newport Beach Jazz Festival, KIFM Smooth Jazz Festival and the House of Blues. Under The Lake have received immense 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
