Karl Denson’s brand of postbop jazz considers 1960s-era hard bop a mere launch-off. Here, Denson also enlists vocalist Andy Bey as a soulful, mellifluous answer to early jazz’s shouters. Keyboardist Robert Walter provides pinpoint accuracy when necessary and smudgy Fender Rhodes electric piano when the mood is downright shaking. Denson’s got the goods on his horn. He blows with a harmonically tight focus one second and a reaching scour the next.

The D Stands for Diesel is a acid jazz music album recording by KARL DENSON released in 1995 on CD, LP/Vinyl and/or cassette.

Karl Denson met Lenny Kravitz during a recording session in 1988. The following year, Kravitz called Denson and asked him to do the solo on the single Let Love Rule from Kravitz's album of the same name. As it turned out, Denson played on the whole album, joined the band for the supporting tour, and was invited back to play on and tour in support of the next two Kravitz albums, Mama Said and Are You Gonna Go My Way. When Kravitz bid adieu to horns, Denson did the same to rock & roll and began a jazz recording career in 1992. KDTU released a self-titled EP in 1999. Dance Lesson appeared on Blue Note two years later. In 2002, Denson issued the eclectic album The Bridge.

This in my opinion is one of Denson's better albums of his career but it's virtuly unknown outside of die hard completist Denson fans like myself. One of the reasons it's not well known is it was put out on an indie label called Greyboy Records. In my opinion this albums sister album is Denson's 2001 masterpiece Dance Lesson #2. They are very similar in sound and the compositions are similar in style. The band featured on D Stands For Diesel is made up mostly with players that work with Denson in the band The Grey Boy Allstars with Zak Najor on drums, Chris Stillwell on electric bass, Elgin Park on guitar and the great Robert Walter on various electric keyboards and organ there's also a hip percussionist onboard but I'm not sure of his name sorry folks. Musically this album falls between Denson's Dance Lesson #2 and his second Tiny Universe album The Bridge. The songs have a looser more jam fueled feel that sounds less arranged than either Dance Lesson #2 and The Bridge. If you're a fan of bands like Tower of Power or Herbie Hancock's Headhunter albums of the early 70s like Thrust or if you're into newer bands like Medeski Martin and Wood I think you'll have no trouble liking this album. Track two features guest vocalist Andy Bey and I'll admit it's not even close to being a favorite but I've found after repeated hearings it has grown on me. My favorite track without a doubt is the lead off tune Louis and Co. It starts off with a fabulous fender Rhodes intro before Denson blows a long kicking tenor solo over what is essentially a Cmin vamp but in my opinion Denson does some of his best playing over vamps with few chord changes. He displays a fat,warm and dark tenor sound that is one of his best attributes as a sax player, he sticks mainly to the tenor sax but occasionally reaches for his alto which he also plays very well. Well I've went on long enough so I'll close by saying if you're into any of the music I mentioned before in this review or of the great soul jazz recorded for the Prestige label under producer Bob Porter such as Melvin Sparks, Johnny "Hammond" Smith, Bernard Purdie, Rusty Bryant and Leon Spencer Jr. Both Sparks and Leon Spencer appeared to great effect on Denson's Dance Lesson #2. Check this out if you can find it for a reasonable price.
