Third album, 'Ducky' was the last to feature the band. While at Chess, Brown was not only signed to the label but also worked as a staff musician playing & arranging for a wealth of other artists & gaining great insight & expertise into other styles of music. After the death of Leonard Chess in 1969, Brown decided not to re-sign with the label & during the 1970s, pursued a solo career as an independent arranger, producer & studio musician. During this period, he worked with artists such as Minnie Ripperton (with whom he arranged and conducted an album on Epic records), Curtis Mayfield, Johnny Nash & Marvin Gaye (both live & in the studio). Brown also co-wrote Marvin Gaye's hit single "Sexual Healing" winning two Grammy awards. He went on to receive further awards recognising his many talents, later in life.
