Karl Denson's Tiny Universe.....

10/15/2013 02:08PM, Published by Robin Linn, Categories: Culture, Today


Karl Denson's Tiny Universe gave an amazing perfromance at the 8th annual JT Roots Festival!



Karl Denson, well known for his work with Lenny Kravitz and his former project, Greyboy Image title llstars, a festival favorite, appeared at this years Joshua Tree Roots Festival and blew the crowd away. When Karl Denson's Tiny Universe hit the stage...... the crowd erupted into dance. KDTU wove together idea after idea, executed by a breathtaking band, a completely unique and diverse guitarist, a flawless rhythms section and 2 horns that intersect and fuse in ways I couldn't have expected! And...they NEVER sacrificed the groove! The music they produce reveals the imagination and tenure of this veteran acid jazz performer. The influx of psychedelic feels created by guitarist, Brian Jordan  gave a super hip vibe to the overall sound. I see why they are called, "acid-jazz". If a song can make you cry, or smile, or take you back in time....then Karl Denson can definitely get you high! They take their jams far out into deep space and flow from song to song seamlessly, which keeps the audience moving......constantly!  I met people that had traveled from all over just to see his set...and by the end of it...I could see why they were so devoted. Music this innovative performed with such brilliant musicianship is worth the travel time. I was glad I moved heaven and earth to get there. The lineup included Karl Denson on vocals and sax, Chris Littefield on trumpet, the gorgeous rhythm section provided by John Staten on drums and Christ Stillwell on bass, and the imaginative stylings of Brian Jordan on guitar. And, the Hammond B3 played by David Veith provided a strong foundation with those gorgeous full B3 sounds I just love! Karl Denson's TIny Universe has it all......heart, soul, funk, jazz, and groove beyond belief!  If you missed the show....or like me...you can't wait to catch the next one....here is his tour schedule. I am trying to get to the October 25th or 26th show in Solana Beach at The Bell Up Tavern....a really great venue to see his show!
