Paul Chambers — Go

As it stands, Paul Chambers “Go” LP is one of the rarest in my collection. I’ve always been a big fan of his playing, but other than a CD reissue of his Blue Note session “Bass On Top”, I didn’t have any of his solo records until I acquired this.

This is an excellent record and the first track, “Awful Mean”, includes a great band. Paul is joined by Cannonball Adderley (as), Wynton Kelly (p), and Philly Joe Jones (dr). Freddie Hubbard and Jimmy Cobb appear on other tracks. (Details: Vee-Jay LP 1014 mono/maroon deepgroove label/first pressing)

    did you notice that the first group is Miles Davis’ sextet without Miles and Coltrane ?
    and Cobb, drummer in the second, is the cat that will substitute Philly Joe behind Miles’ drums ?

      I guess they were all working together in different combos. It would be interesting to know the history of how some of those groups and rhythm sections came together.

    Very nice blog Tim! I need that Paul Chambers record! I recently got a new turntable and it’s been fun listening to my old records. I would like to do a vinyl pressing of my next quartet cd… we’ll see.
