Among the best bassists of 1955-1965, Paul Chambers was one of the primary in jazz to consider creative bowed solos (apart from Slam Stewart, who also hummed together with his bowing). He was raised in Detroit, where he was area of the fertile regional jazz picture. After touring with Paul Quinichette, Chambers visited NY, where he used the J.J. Johnson-Kai Winding quintet and George Wallington. He spent the majority of his primary years (1955-1963) as an associate of the Kilometers Davis Quintet, taking part in practically all of Davis’ traditional recordings from the period. When he remaining, “Mr. P.C.” (as John Coltrane known as him in another of his originals) caused the Wynton Kelly Trio (1963-1966) and freelanced until his loss of life. Chambers, a regularly inspired accompanist who was simply a fantastic soloist, produced many recordings during his short period, including some with Sonny Rollins, Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Donald Byrd, Bud Powell, and Freddie Hubbard, and a few like a leader.
