AllMusic Review by

Supervised by KCRW DJ Mathieu "Mr. French" Schreyer, the soundtrack to Jon Favreau's 2014 comedy Chef is an eclectic assortment of rhythmic music that spans several cultures and decades. Among the deeper, more vintage highlights are Liquid Liquid's "Cavern," Pete Rodriguez's "I Like It Like That," Roberto Roena's "Que Se Sepa," and Louis Ramirez's "Ali Baba." Several additional standouts are spirited modern covers, including El Michels Affair's "C.R.E.A.M." (Wu-Tang Clan), Rebirth Brass Band's "Bustin Loose" (Chuck Brown & the Soul Searchers), the Hot 8 Brass Band's "Sexual Healing" (Marvin Gaye), and Grant Phabao, the Lone Ranger, and Carlton Livingston's version of "A Message to You Rudy" (the Specials).
