The Career Of Paul Chambers

Mar 17, 2019

Jazz Unlimited for March 17, 2019will be “The Career of Paul Chambers.”   In his short career, bassist Paul Chambers was known for his accurate intonation, time keeping and imaginative and sometimes bowed bass solos.  In addition to long stints with Miles Davis and Wynton Kelly Trio, Chambers was in great demand during his lifetime.  This week’s show will also present him with Bill Evans, the Quincy Jones Orchestra, Sonny Clark, Hank Mobley, Wes Montgomery, John Coltrane, Cannonball Adderley, Abbey Lincoln, King Pleasure, the Gil Evans Orchestra and Joe Henderson.

The Slide Show has my photos of some of the artists heard on this show.

The Audio Archive of this show sill be available until the morning of March 25, 2019.
