Mel Brown - Chicken Fat mp3 album

Chicken fat is fat obtained (usually as a by-product) from chicken rendering and processing. Of the many animal-sourced substances, chicken fat is noted for being high in linoleic acid, an omega-6 fatty acid. Linoleic acid levels are between 1. % and 2. %. It is a common flavoring, additive or main component of chicken soup. It is often used in pet foods, and has been used in the production of biodiesel.

Mel Brown: Chicken Fat by David Rickert, published on April 15, 2004. When you get a couple of guitar players together you’re often going to get the kind of finger-busting interplay heard on Chicken Fat ; the question is whether it will be interesting enough to listen to or too self-indulgent. For the most part, Mel Brown succeeds in creating a pleasant piece of soul jazz that, on occasion, ventures into straightforward blues tunes. There’s plenty of guitar solos on this 1967 record, and Brown takes an edgy, almost haphazard approach to soling that leans heavily on blues licks no doubt acquired during a tenure as a sideman with T-Bone Walker

Discovery" on Chicken Fat, his debut for the label, and this album does feature a fantastic unique sound. Brown played in the bands of T-Bone Walker and John Lee Hooker, and has an aggressive (though not harsh) single-string picking style. For this date he is paired with either Herb Ellis or Arthur Wright on guitar, Gerald Wiggins on organ, and Brown's regular rhythm section of Paul Humphrey on drums and Ronald Brown on electric bass.

All compositions by Mel Brown, except as indicated. Greasy Spoon" (Mel Brown, Herb Ellis, Paul Humphrey) - 5:53. Slalom" (Jules Chaikin) - 2:31. Hobo Flats" (Oliver Nelson) - 2:18. Shanty" (Brown, Arthur Wright) - 4:40. Sad But True" (Ellis) - 5:01. I'm Goin' to Jackson" (Ellis) - 4:24.
