Mel Brown - Chicken Fat LP
Limited edition orange vinyl.
The 1967 Impulse! legendary Funk/Soul Instrumental masterpiece album Chicken Fat. If you haven't heard Chicken Fat yet, get ready because the LP won't leave your turntable until your jaw stops hitting the floor.
Initially working as a guitar player for such greats as Sonny Boy Williamson & Etta James, Impulse! 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.
AAA mastered from the original analog master tapes and cut live by audio guru Kevin Gray.
