first_imgLoad remaining images Last night, Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe, The Motet, and The Mike Dillon Band blew the roof off of New Orleans’ venue Howlin’ Wolf for a glorious late night Jazz Fest celebration. Leading the show was KDTU’s planned performance of Prince’s Dirty Mind album, which the group has done in the past. Planned months in advance, the show took on a new emotional significance in the wake of the Purple One’s recent passing.The fallen star’s iconic music blasted throughout the walls of the Wolf, as the band did justice to the 1980 classic album, Dirty Mind. The set included the record’s hits, “Do It All Night,” “Gotta Broken Heart Again,” “Uptown” and a raging “Party” closer. The full release bounces from funk to pop to everything in between, and the band handled the music like true professionals. Con Brio’s singer Ziek McCarter was on hand to accentuate the Purple One’s iconic vocals.The band returned for a three song encore that expanded beyond Dirty Mind and brought out some of Prince’s biggest hits, including “I Wanna Be Your Lover,” When Doves Cry,” and an emotionally-charged, soul-satisfying “Purple Rain.” Enjoy this fan-shot footage of “When Doves Cry”:Check out the rest of the night’s magnificent photos in the gallery below, courtesy of Sam Shinault!Setlist: Karl Denson’s Tiny Universe Does Prince at Howlin’ Wolf, New Orleans, LA – 4/28/16:Set 1: Dirty Mind, When You Were Mine, Do It All Night, Gotta Broken Heart Again, Uptown, Head, Sister, PartyEncore: I Wanna Be Your Lover, When Doves Cry, Purple Rainlast_img read more
