Tour 65 is coming! Fresh off the road with The Rolling Stones, Karl Denson AKA “Diesel” is back out on the road with his “Tiny Universe” celebrating his 65th birthday. Lenny Kravitz alum and cofounder of the seminal boogaloo revivalists The Greyboy Allstars, Karl Denson‘s Tiny Universe will be bringing their world renowned live performance to select cities this winter including the premier of “A Diesel Insane: The Music Of David Bowie”.
The Mattson 2
The Mattson 2’s recent output has found them evoking the lush and carefree soundscapes of Japanese city pop. Their 2018 release Vaults of Eternity: Japan was full of loving reinterpretations of songs by artists like Haruomi Hosono and Ryuichi Sakamoto, their latest LP Paradise captures that breezy, sun-filled vibe. It charted Billboard at #1 Contemp. Jazz and landed features in the Washington Post and Pitchfork. Amongst collabs w/ Ray Barbee, Tommy Guerrero, Tony Alva, Farmer Dave (of Kurt Vile), and Money Mark (of Beastie Boys), they released Star Stuff in 2017 with Chaz Bear (FKA Chaz Bundick, AKA Toro Y Moi) — also #1 on Billboard contemp. jazz charts — and reinterpreted Coltrane’s legendary A Love Supreme which Ashely Kahn (author of A Love Supreme: The Creation of John Coltrane’s Classic Album) says “there is a depth of sincerity and reverence in what the Mattson’s are doing that is unquestionable.”
