Touring saxophonist with The Rolling Stones, Karl Denson fronts the seven-member jazz/funk/rock group from San Diego, California, “as if he’s preaching the gospel,” according to The Kate, a live music series from CPTV featuring bold performers with something to say. “Merging funk, soul, rock, jazz, blues and more, his energy and spirit are contagious while his songwriting serves a larger message of fellowship—across generations, genders, religions and cultures.”
Denson’s energy and spirit are contagious while his songwriting serves a larger message of fellowship—across generations, genders, religions and cultures. Highly regarded as one of the best live acts on the planet, KDTU distills the sweeping stylistic range of its concert performances into their own authentic sound. Along with KDTU and touring with The Rolling Stones, Denson also holds down his role as a founding member of the seminal funk band The Greyboy Allstars.
