Album Notes
Chances are, audiences have seen the seven young men who comprise The Chad Fisher Group without even realizing it. From Chad Fisher and Gary Wheat backing The Temptations at Radio City Music Hall, to guitarist Steve Lewis' recent appearance on Late Night with Conan O'Brien, to jamming alongside Wynton Marsalis at a small club in their native city, the various members of the CFG are perpetually in the spotlight and are likely to turn up in any musical context, no matter the genre. This is why it is truly an event when these musicians share the stage together as The Chad Fisher Group.
Fisher, an established freelance trombonist, began the group as a straight-ahead jazz project but it quickly evolved into a unique musical experience, combining pure improvisation with original compositions and arrangements guaranteed to move the feet as well as the soul. On any given night, the band may be found swinging through a jazz standard, or rolling through a reggae tune with horns sounding reminiscent of Ellington and Mingus, or vocals and a steel guitar conjuring up classic country. On the same set they may ride a groove in the spirit of bands like Medeski, Martin, and Wood or even the afro-beat of Fela Kuti. The only thing one can truly expect at a Chad Fisher Group show is the unexpected.
The band was recently awarded The BAMA award for "Best Jazz." In November of 2004 the CFG released its first album, the Chad Fisher Group, to much critical acclaim. The band recently released its second full-length album, Dog Parade. With two records under its belt and a third coming in 2008, the Chad Fisher Group stands ready to hit the road and bring it to the ears of the masses.
Fisher has gained quite a reputation, touring often with classic bands like The Temptations, The O'Jays, The Four Tops, and American Ruben Studdard. He has also performed or recorded with artists like Gregg Allman, Rolling Stones keyboardist Chuck Leavell, Jason Isbell, Bonnie Bramblett, Frankie Valli, Wayne Newton, producer Peter Wolf, Mary Wilson of The Supremes, Bob Mintzer, Lew Soloff, Lou Marini, Wycliffe Gordon, The Bjorkestra, and a long list of others. In addition, his unending need to jam has found him on stage with the likes of Wynton Marsalis and personal hero, trombonist Fred Wesley.
In the summer of 2004, Fisher found himself playing a record seven performances on five stages during Birmingham's City Stages Weekend. When he's not traveling, Chad can be found with a number local and regional bands, ranging from soul to indie rock. His love of music has lead him ultimately to found the CFG to bring a whole new voice to the musical table.

Are you kidding me?
These guys are incredible! And they are right here in my own back yard. Chad Fisher has created some of the most original sounds and music I have ever heard. Gary Wheat on saxes is a MONSTER! The recording is are part of their intimate inner circle and it sounds as if they are playing just for you. Highly recommended for any music lover of any genre. Get it and get it NOW!


Highly Recommended
I was pleasantly suprised upon purchasing "the Chad Fisher Group". The album as a whole has a truly distinctive sound ,unlike many works from the genre, and the compositions are more accessible the most "jazz" albums. The elements of group improvisation are a fresh departure from the standard jazz formula and the flow of these catchy tunes makes for a great listen. I hope to hear more from The Chad Fisher Group in the very near future.


oh yeah
I've been looking for a record like this for a long time. I haven't heard something as fresh and original since I discovered NY bassist Ben Allison. This, however, is clearly not NY but deserves equal recognition.


Phenominally Creative!!
Rarely in today's musical world do you hear something that you can say is original. However, this is at the top of the list of creativity and originality. Chad's musicianship in his compositions shows developing genius & should be an inspiration to other young musicians to not be afraid to let your creative side rule your world. For the folks of CFG - I love it! If you get a chance to see them live - it's a must, the CD is only half the fun!
