Great Session
Frank Bock | 03/14/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Paul Chambers is definitely one of my favorite bass players, so picking up this album was almost essenitial. I was right in thinking that it would be good because it is. Chambers is of course up front, but unlike a lot of bass players solo albums (read Ron Carter), Mr. PC is never in your face. He simply solos more. And there are a bunch of chances on this deal to hear his great arco playing, which always caught my ear. I disagree though with Amazon's opinion on Donald Byrd. I think he plays quite well. If anyone's lines are not up to par, I would have to say that it's Trane's. But it's the wild card, Kenny Burrell who really does it for me on this album. Philly Joe lights a huge fire under Burrell and his guitar solos really knocked me down on the ground. This is a great session for Burrell. It is just good though to hear more of Chamber's arco playing. If you want to here some more, you can check out Bud Powell's Scene Changes. PC solos like a mf with the bow on a bunch of songs. And Whims of Chambers is just a good deal to have around. The only drawback is the sound quality isn't too great. Perhaps Bluenote will eventually remaster and release it without all the unnecessary echo. Great album. Get it."
Great late 50s jazz

"This is an excellent release. I strongly recommend getting the Mosaic Paul Chambers 3CD set released in 2003 instead of getting the single discs... superior sound, informative liner note, good price. If not available here, try"
Good For You!

"If you are reading this, your interest in Mr. PC has been sparked for some reason. You would be remiss not to buy this album, if not for the great bass playing and composition of Mr PC (Paul Chambers) himself, but also because John Coltrane appears on some of the tunes. Buy this one first, but then check out "We Three" with Paul Chambers."
