The Major Scale


May 8, 2019

When one wants to find out where the "mainstream" gets its lifeblood, simply look outside and underground–there you'll find all the hidden gems and roads less taken. Karl Denson is an artist who has operated in both of these worlds since the 1980s. His saxophone is the first choice of Lenny Kravitz and the Rolling Stones, to name a few, and on the flip side he cuts with Andy Bey and the Greyboy All-Stars. Then there's his own stunning discography... Funk, blues, rock steady, and loads of soul make up the music of Karl Denson, along with some gnomes and badgers, which he'll explain in the segment.
 
One thing we're proud to brag about here at the Major Scale are some of the artists we've featured from the late night talk show scene: such as Grace Kelly and Jon Lampley from Stay Human of the Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Thanks to a suggestion by Hillary Donnell, we can now add Allison Miller to the list. She's one of the rotating drummers from Late Night with Seth Meyers, and upon listening to her work you can tell why she get's the gig. Or simply ask Ani DiFranco and Dr. Lonnie Smith, some of the other excellent talent she's held her own with. Miller's band is called Boom Tic Boom and they're on a roll with their latest album "Glitter Wolf."
