Synopsis

Amazon.com
A thriving band of experienced groove tradesman led by Chicago saxophonist Mars Williams, Liquid Soul meld hardcore funk, hip-hop, R&B, and what was once called acid-jazz into a steaming potpourri of modern dance music. The band consistently embrace new, turntable-infested rhythm collisions and old bop classics with equal enthusiasm. A guest scat by fellow Chicago bohemian Kurt Elling on "Salt Peanuts" works well and leaves the door open for further jazz expansions. Using sanctioned samples of elder musical statesman as well as sweet soul ballads to pace their wet-and-wild house party, Liquid Soul unite bebop and hip-hop for a vigorous, butt-shaking affair. This band goes beyond acid-jazz and gets back to the old-school funk at the same time. Fun. --Mitch Myers

CD Reviews

Funky, Get Down, Go Go music! HOT!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The first song I heard of Liquid Soul's was Threadin' the Needle. I literally jumped out of my seat and exclaimed, "Oh, my GOD"! I was greatly impressed the moment I heard it. It was powerful and exciting. All the musicians in this band are extremely tallented. The bands blend, style, and beat are very unique, even in the acid jazz world. The combination of jazz, funk, rap, and the distorted guitar rock sound make Liquid Soul the wonderful combination that they are. This CD (as well as their first album) have been frequent in my CD-player and will remain that way.I recommend this album to anyone who likes jazz, rock, funk, etc.=)"
You WILL buy this cd!

"Liquid Soul is, simply put, the best funk band out there right now. Mixing elements of acid jazz, 70's funk, latin and swing, the band is versitle and entertaining. While Dirty MF really only has one song in the cd, his vocal rhymes are a great addition to the blowing horns section and the beldning of the bass, drums and guitars. (Mars can do some amazing things with his sax.. wow...) While I personally like "Cabbage Roll" the most on this cd, almost every track is 10 star quality, and the worst one (I want you to want me) would be considered god-like to fans of rap. no matter what you listen to, you will buy this cd NOW!"

"Although this album has been out for 4 years now, I had to write a review. This is one of the best acid jazz albums around. Rarely is an album able to capture the energy of a band that "hits" live. But this album is as close to seeing Liquid Soul is concert as you can get without seeing them at the Double Door on Sundays. These guys deserve all of the accolades they get. They work hard at what they do and it shows in every note."
