Chicken Fat

Chicken Fat

The 1967 Impulse Records legendary Funk/Soul Instrumental masterpiece album Chicken Fat.

Artist: Mel Brown

Genre: Soul

Label: Jackpot

Release date:


Initially working as a guitar player for such greats as Sonny Boy Williamson & Etta James, Impulse Records eventually offered Mel Brown the chance to record his own material. Recorded in 1967 in Hollywood, CA, for the Impulse record label, Brown amassed a group of session musicians who had played with Charles Mingus, Marvin Gaye, and Dizzy Gillespie. Much of the album was arranged by Oliver Nelson, who worked with Thelonious Monk, Sonny Rollins, Jimmy Smith and more. His touch is felt all over the record and helps solidify the journey. These recording sessions also reflected the Sunset Strip and the energy of late ‘60s Los Angeles so incredibly, you can almost hear the go-go boots hit the floor to dance til they drop. AAA Mastered from the Original Analog Master Tapes and cut live by audio guru Kevin Gray.
