Funk Jazz Formation

Founded and led by Jayson Tipp, founder of the smooth jazz group Under The Lake, Funk-Jazz-Formation was formed out of the 2018 Under The Lake release “Jazz, Groove & Attitude” a concept album in tribute to The Crusaders. The same players from that album perform a playlist of classic and modern funk jazz ranging from Grant Green, The Crusaders, Eddie Harris, Herbie Hancock to more recent favorites from John Scofield, The New Mastersounds, and Medeski, Martin & Wood as well as some of Under The Lake’s most popular tunes with tenor and trombone line-up. view their website

Together they have collaborated on seven CD’s – all of which remain in radio rotation, and are known far and wide for their songwriting abilities and high energy entertainment style.
