Mel Brown

Chicken Fat

£21.99

Released: 13th January 2023. Guitarist Mel Brown's 1967 Impulse! debut is possibly both the funkiest and most unique album ever released on the label. Brown's clean blues picking style-honed while playing in John Lee Hooker's and T-Bone Walker's bands-marinates funkily with the swinging soul-jazz organ of Gerald Wiggins. Especially noteworthy are the title track, 'Greasy Spoon' and the simmering lament of 'I'm Goin' to Jackson'.
