Cat No: CATLP194


Paul Chambers came to New York in the latter part of
1955 and since then has devoted the majority of his time to working
with Miles Davis. Miles the perfectionist, did well in choosing Paul as
his regular bassist. Paul’s exciting bowed and pizzicato solos and his
solid rhythmic line helped spark Miles’ quintet to the lofty heights it
achieved in clubs and on records. Paul too has benefitted greatly
from his association with Miles. No musician with any degree of
sensitivity can work night after night behind the “Great Man” without
absorbing some of his profound musical wisdom and the results of
Paul’s exposure to Miles can be heard in his music. He is a complete
musician now with a deep and expansive conception that, combined
with his always brilliant technical prowess marks him as the bass
player to watch, or rather the bass player to listen to.
