plays a fluid mix of funk, jazz, and R&B that incorporates hip-hop, techno, and spoken word. On its new album, One-Two Punch
, the band blends Hendrix-like guitar squalls, frenetic turntable scratching, and old-school beatboxing. Guests like DJ Logic, Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid, and Widespread Panic keyboardist John "JoJo" Hermann add to the mix. Live, Liquid Soul -- led by searing sax player Mars Williams -- can kick it like a retro jazz combo one minute and a free-form jam-band the next.
