Together again, after a hiatus of ten years, UTL is back with the freshest, most compelling smooth jazz release of the year - People Together. People Together is filled with energy- inspired by UTL's enthusiastically-received reunion in 2005 (their first live performance in 8 years) at the Columbia City Theater in Seattle.
In just a few short weeks, "Sweet Life" has climbed to #4 on the MusicChoice chart, the Top 50 in the SmoothJazz.com chart and is the #15 most downloaded smooth jazz track on the RadioWave Monitor.
