Wu-Tang Clan luminary GZA is enlisting the Latin-funk ensemble Grupo Fantasma to accompany him in a recitation of his touchstone Liquid Swords album, an album packed with samples of classic horns and slinky textures from classic soul 45s. Plus, we’re getting the added benefit at this show of GZA having done this once already, at last weekend’s Bonnaroo festival, so the Zappa, Dramatics and Stevie Wonder samples on “Cold World” will sound as tight as possible. With Brownout.
