Paul Chambers

One of the premier bassists in jazz history, Paul Chambers had it all: a beautiful tone, a fluid technique, a great choice of notes, impeccable time and a magnificent sense of swing. He could even take a bowed solo and keep it interesting and in tune. Paul Chambers was born in Pittsburgh in 1935, and grew up in Detroit, where he became part of the city's growing jazz scene. He moved to New York, where he played in the {{J.J. Johnson = 8101}}-{{Kai Winding = 11467}} quintet. He joined Miles Davis' first legendary quintet along with {{John Coltrane = 5851}}, {{"Philly" Joe Jones = 8188}}, and {{Red Garland = 6951}}, at the age of 20

Another (Mostly) Sax Attack

Read "Another (Mostly) Sax Attack" reviewed by Marc Cohn

The doctor had a sax attack this week having 'overdosed' on the just-arrived, absolutely gorgeous (and mostly previously unreleased) Paul Desmond box from Mosaic (and I'm more of a 'Phil Woods kind of guy'!). One thing led to another: our chronological Sonny Rollins celebration (The Sound of Sonny); Kenny Garrett with Miles 'live'; Miguel Zenon; Don ...

Kurt Rosenwinkel Trio: Angels Around

Read "Angels Around" reviewed by Geno Thackara

However much Kurt Rosenwinkel has audaciously wandered away from familiar tracks in his career, the spirit of jazz has always stayed central to his roots and his playing.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
