Karl Denson is taking a step back from singing to get back to the music. The saxophonist has played with Lenny Kravitz, released several solo albums and fronted the Greyboy Allstars and Karl Denson's Tiny Universe. But he is going low key in the coming months. He's touring small clubs across the country with his new jazz trio, which plays Rams Head Tavern in Annapolis Saturday and the 8x10 in Federal Hill Sunday. Denson hasn't tinkered extensively with a traditional jazz format since his pre-Kravitz days in the late '80s, when he performed in anything from a duo to a quintet.
