In prize of Mr. Denson

Back from Zurich and Lucca, I like to start this thread on Carl Denson.
Don't get me wrong, but I dare to say he's our new Mick Taylor. He's very gifted and has proven to be able to elevate the musica of the Rolling Stones to a higher ground, like Ernie Watts did, a very long time ago. After no less then eighty concerts of Rolling Stones attended,'Brown Sugar' gives me thrills again!
His sax is something like a third guitar that goes straight to the end of the song, but could go on rocking and swinging.
'Mise You'? It sounds very well now that Watts, Denson and Jones trio has given the song a totally new life.
I wish the Rolling Stones will given Denson many more chances, in very near future... 'Waiting On A Friend', 'Imagination' come easy, but I also hore the Glimmer Twins will consider to arrange some other songs to let Denson support Mick Jagger and abandone two backsingers that have become quite boring and use less. Welcome back Keith on backvocals: he's much more moving than anybody else, in my opinion.
No need to say that this point of view of mine will bashed, but I can't see why the Rolling Stones should not remember that have conquered the World being proud to be different, innovative and gifted musicians.
Am I the only one here hoping for new jam sessions on stage?
Thanks for reading,

I think Karl's really talented.I've heard him blow some amazing solos. I'm interested in learning more about him. Where'd he come from? What was he doing before this gig? I think he has a lot of soul and they're lucky to have him. He doesn't sound like one of those generic cocktail guys to me. And I really think they have one or two of that sort of section cat.

for me personally, if Tim, Bernard and Chuck found other opportunities, I I don't that could hurt personally. But in my opinion losing Karl would take some rooted soul and pump, played with finesse, (but still powerfully raw emotionally imo).
Feel the same way about Sara.
Just now really gauging her depth.
She bring the huge crowd UP on Shelter, really has soul power. I heard her going down into that lower register and was duly surprised at how down home old soul she sounded; I think she could be real dynamite; they should encourage her to explode; I love Lisa and think fans should go out of their way to love her up, so this isn't a comment on her at all; just sayinhg I'm a bigger Sara fan every time out; she adds a lot imo.
Giving her a lead vocal on a verse; or extending a bridge or something for her could be a cool arrangment; totally not distracting from the Stones but adding to the dynamic in a refreshimng way; I think they did that succccessfully with Shelter but honestly think (almost) except for the zing and lift Sara brought to it; well, the audience just really warmed up when she was doing her thing, let's say that....

and as for the boys, imo it would show assured confidence and great showmanship.
The audience would adore another arrangement that could feature her a little I think. Haven't heard tonights show yet.

I'd prise to hear Karl play his sax every day;
but I settle for just any time I can hear him play as some sort of consolation prize...
He is priceless, that's for sure;
and therefore he gets my praise.

All together now: ...

...P.S.: wondering why Karl only gets the spotlight on Brown Sugar, though.
I'd love to hear his take on the Miss You sax solo!
But maybe they keep that one for Tim, as some sort of credit for that man's long-time participation?
He does an OK job on it - nothing more, imo.

Karl Denson studied Bobby's playing. Not prior to getting the gig with the Stones

but because he's always loved Bobby's playing.

He had a center-stage spotlight moment with Can't Your Hear Me Knocking in 2015.
Not at every show, unfortunately.
