Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe (KDTU) is a jazz/funk/rock group from San Diego, California. Members include Denson, Chris Littlefield, Brian Jordan, Ron Johnson, David Veith, and John Staten. Former artists also include Zak Najor (drums), Andy Cleaves (trumpet), Eric Boulovar (drums), Craig Dawson (drums), and Alton ‘Brooks’ Parker (visualist).


KDTU are best known for their infectious and energetic live performances, which led the group to find a niche of enthusiastic fans among those who celebrate jambands such as Phish and Widespread Panic as well as progressive jazz groups such as Soulive and Medeski, Martin, and Wood. Some members of the Tiny Universe are also involved in the funktronica/Nu jazz group ‘BluSirkut’, and also in the funky jazz band ‘On The One’.

KDTU are road warriors. They spend the majority of any given year touring the country, most frequently in the West and Northeast but usually hit most cities along the way. They can also be found performing at numerous music festivals including Bonnaroo, High Sierra, Berkshire Mountain, Austin City Limits, and the Yggdrasil Festival.

In addition, KDTU has released two albums, a self-titled album in 1999 and The Bridge in 2002.
