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.

awesome cd!!!
need more.... more!!!


I can't stop listening.
I got a chance to see this band at CBGB about a month ago. It was the most refreshing and original jazz (or whatever you choose to call it)I've heard in a long time. This album measures up to what I heard live. The sound can be futuristic and vintage all at once. It can be as if I've heard the tunes before but at the same time I've never heard anything like it. "The Creeps" is a personal favorite, it's like reggae country dixieland. Also, I can't get "CFG" out of my head. I hope to hear much more from this band real soon.


it's all in there, everything good music should be. virtuostic without pretense, funky without cliche, swingin' without tryin'; damn it's good...


Exactly the funky brass band sound I've been craving
Just bought my first CD via someone who contacted me on myspace. The Chad Fisher Group's Dog Parade delivers exactly the funky brass band sound I've been craving recently. It's going to be worn slam out if I don't stop spinning it soon. Everything you always loved about Galactic without the pretension; this album has a very honest homespun quality, warm familiar-sounding horn lines and interplay and an infectious ambient playful quality. Solid percussion, careful guitar shading, on-point and in the pocket bass lines and the occasional driving keyboard/organ line. Ambient musical anecdotes make the transition from track to track easy and interesting without feeling arbitrary. I would recommend for solid light funky jazz listening.
