Paul Chambers – Whims of Chambers


Paul Chambers is the best jazz bassist.

That’s that, then.

But, to continue! Chambers is probably best known for his contributions to SO many classic jazz albums released under other names, but his own albums are equally outstanding, and this is one of my favorites, due in no small part to the insane line-up:

Paul Chambers – bass
Donald Byrd – trumpet
John Coltrane – tenor saxophone
Kenny Burrell – guitar
Horace Silver – piano
Philly Joe Jones – drums

If that don’t make your soul move, then yer soul must be dead …
