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.
