For the past few nights, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe has been touring with The White Wizard himself, Widespread Panic guitarist Jimmy Herring. Herring and Denson have collaborated many times in the past, and they recently joined forces in New Orleans earlier this year. With that show going so well, it was only logical for KDTU to recruit Herring for a full run of shows in the Southeast, and the results could not have been better.Jimmy Herring and Karl Denson are seasoned musical veterans, so it’s no surprise that their collaboration would be so well received. The band hit the Neighborhood Theatre in Charlotte, NC last Friday, treating fans to a non-stop smoke show. The group got down on some KDTU originals, as well as hit covers like ZZ Top’s “Just Got Paid”, David Bowie’s “Young Americans” and Steely Dan’s “Show Biz Kids.”Fortunately, thanks to taper “tonedeaf”, we can listen to a full length stream of the show. Tune in for a recording of Jimmy Herring with Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe in Charlotte, coming in hot below.Note: Herring comes in for the fourth song, “Chicken Lickin’,” and remains through the finale.Don’t miss this incredible collaboration one last time, as they’ll be performing at the City Winery Nashville tonight to close out the five show run.[Photo via khop98 // Instagtram]
