vinylPaul Chambers Jr. (1935-1969) was a jazz double bassist who was the anchor for trumpeter Miles Davis for eight years. Chambers' contribution on 'Kind Of Blue' is considered to be some of the most rhythmically and harmonically supportive bass playing in the history of jazz. Chambers' masterpiece 'Bass On Top' opens with 'Yesterdays' which has some of the most beautiful bowed bass you can hear, with a sensitive but subtle support from Kenny Burrell, Hank Jones, and Art Taylor. 'Dear Old Stockholm' is a another great beauty. (Also recorded on Davis' 'Round Midnight', with a great Paul Chambers solo). 'I'm Confessin' That I Love You' is essential Paul alone for four minutes of pure beauty. TRACKLIST Side A 1. Yesterdays 2. You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To 3. Chasin' The Bird 4.
