Glide Review - Karl Denson Tiny Universe Live 2-8-12 Webster Hall, NYC
Got a new review up over at Glide.
Give it a read Right C'Here!!!
2012 has already been a great year for live music and this show kept the awesome train a rolling by pairing two touring beasts with a classic piece of rock and roll. Karl Denson's Tiny Universe and Anders Osborne have been touring together for the last few months off and on playing individual sets and closing with a tag-team cover of The Rolling Stones Sticky Fingers.
The review is pretty detailed, so I won't write too much more on the show, but wrapping up: Anders trio set surprised, KDTU's set underwhelmed a touch and the Sticky Fingers combo action was glorious. Perhaps the coolest thing was the group taking songs that you might not expect them to jam out and running wild with them ("You Gotta Move" & "Sister Morphine") and ones that you thought would be explored like "Can't You Hear Me Knocking" were played close to the album version.
Sticky Fingers is my favorite Rolling Stones album and the bands did it more then justice, they nailed it up and down. This was a great night of tunes, here are some live video from the tour:
