The Chad Fisher Group (the CFG) has been turning heads since it burst onto the local music scene in Birmingham, Alabama in December of 2002. Since then, the CFG has released two records and impressed audiences from New Orleans to New York City.
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 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.
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 2007, the Chad Fisher Group stands ready to hit the road and bring it to the ears of the masses.
The twenty-eight year old Fisher has gained quite a reputation, touring often with classic bands like The Temptations, The Four Tops, The O''Jays, and even American Idol Ruben Studdard.
He has also performed or recorded with artists like Wayne Newton, Mary Wilson of The Supremes, Bob Mintzer, Lew Soloff, Lou Marini, Wycliffe Gordon, 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. His love of music has lead him ultimately to found the CFG to bring a whole new voice to the musical table.
In the summer of 2004, Fisher found himself playing a record seven performances on five separate stages during Birmingham''s City Stages Weekend. When he''s not traveling, Chad can be found with local and regional favorite, Downright, and of course the CFG.
The CFG is Chad Fisher on trombone and keys, Gary Wheat on saxophones, Steve Lewis on guitars, Abe Becker on bass, and Michael Glaser on drums. The band is often joined by Rob Alley on trumpet, Matthew Devine on vintage keyboards and samples, and Tim Carroll on bass.
