Abraham Laboriel with the CSCM Professors: The Chicken

The Professors of the Cornel School of Contemporary Music got together and performed their take of “The Chicken”. The group includes Abraham Laboriel on bass, Jimmy Branly on drums, Otmaro Ruiz on keys and Allen Hinds on guitar.

Many people think Jaco Pastorius wrote this tune, but it was actually composed by Alfred “Pee Wee” Ellis, who arranged and co-wrote music with James Brown and others.
