HASH(0x90536480) out of 5 stars Public Domain but they sound nice 2 Mar. 2012
By JD - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Just listened to all 4 cds through my headphones. Although it's a Public Domain release, all songs are taken from previously released cds. They sound really nice. No needle drops here. Once again no liner notes though. Get it along with the HERBIE MANN & DONALD BYRD Eight Classic Albums CDs. Both also really nice with no needle drops. Beware of the LOU DONALDSON Eight Classic Albums CD set. Nice sound but totally messed up order. Check the LOU DONALDSON Eight Classic Albums cd review for corrected order.

HASH(0x9054296c) out of 5 stars Paul Chambers 13 May 2012
By Marc - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is an excellent compilation of eight Paul Chambers LP's, remastered to improve the quality of the sound. Paul Chambers has always been one of my favourite bass players, along with Ron Carter, Ray Brown and Milt Hinton, and if you like Bebop, and enjoy small ensembles, these records are quite wonderful.

HASH(0x90546ce4) out of 5 stars Mostly Chamber's earlier work as a leader with one album as a sideman 24 Sept. 2013
By Mike Tarrani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The eight albums in this are mainly focused on Chambers' first albums as a leader and his earlier work spanning 1956 through 1960. Missing are his stints as side man for Miles and Red Garland, but those are readily available from Prestige box sets. This collection gives a glimpse into a still young, mature musician (he was only 21 when he led the first album in this set.) I could go on about how prolific or influential he was, but the real story is in the sound samples on the album pages to which I have linked below.

The information you are probably seeking are answers to two questions: (1) how is the sound, and (2), where did the tracks originate. To answer the first question the sound is excellent to my hears. As for that, here is the list of albums you will get:

Tracks 1 through 6 are the album titled Chambers' Music recorded for Jazz West at the United Western Recorders studio in Hollywood on March 1, 1956. John Coltrane is on tenor sax with Kenny Drew on piano, Paul on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums.

Tracks 7 through 13 are the album titled Whims of Chambers recorded for Blue Note at Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio on September 21, 1956. John Coltrane on tenor sax is accompanied by Donald Byrd on trumpet and backed by Horace Silver on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, Paul on bass and Philly Joe Jones on drums.

Tracks 14 through 19 are the album titled Paul Chambers Quintet recorded for Blue Note at Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio on May 19, 1957. Clifford Jordan is on tenor sax accompanied by Donald Byrd on trumper and backed by Tommy Flanagan on piano, Paul on bass and Elvin Jones on drums.

Tracks 20 through 25 are the album titled Bass on Top recorded for Blue Note at Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio on July 14, 1957. The ensemble is a quartet led by Paul on bass, with Hank Jones on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar and Art Taylor on drums.

Tracks 26 through 31 are the album titled Go recorded for Vee-Jay Records at the Universal Recording Studios in Chicago during two February 1959 sessions. Cannonball Adderley is on alto sax, Freddie Hubbard on trumpet, Wynton Kelly on piano and Paul on bass. Jimmy Cobb and Philly Joe Jones on drums, depending on track.

Tracks 32 through 38 are the album titled Shades of Redd. This is the only album in this set that is not led by Paul. This was recorded for Blue Note at Rudy van Gelder's Englewood Cliffs, NJ studio on August 13, 1960 and released the following year. Jackie McLean is on alto sax and Tina Brooks on tenor sax. Freddie Redd on piano is the session leader with Paul on bass and Louis Hayes on drums.

Tracks 39 through 44 are the album titled We Three: Rudy Van Gelder Remasters Series recorded for Prestige at Rudy van Gelder's Hackensack, NJ studio on November 14, 1958. Ths is strictly a piano trio session with Phineas Newborn, jr on piano, Paul on bass and Roy Haynes on drums.

The remaining tracks are the album titled 1st Bassman recorded for Vee-Jay Records at the Bell Sound Studios in NYC on May 12, 1960. Tommy Turrentine is on trumpet accompanied by Yusef Lateef on tenor sax. Wynton Kelly is the pianist with Paul on bass and Lex Humperies on drums.

If you are a bassist this is an essential set. Another album I strongly recommend is The Ultimate Jazz Collection, which is nearly five hours of Paul and Art Taylor on drums backing Red Garland on piano.

HASH(0x9054b060) out of 5 stars heavy bass 10 Jan. 2013
By jsa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Paul Chambers was a member of the Miles Davis, John Coltrane and Red Garland led-groups that recorded a bunch of classic albums, and while I was aware that he recorded a number of things as a leader, I'd never heard any of them until I listened to the eight records compiled in this box set. The best things here are "We Three," particularly because of Phineas Newborn's contribution, and "Shades of Redd," a classic session that was actually under the leadership of pianist Freddie Redd. I think the above-mentioned albums are successful because there's a greater balance among the musicians, with fewer extended bass solos than you find, for example, in "Bass on Top" and "Chambers' Music" (actually a pretty good album with Clifford Jordan sounding very much like Coltrane.)

I don't know how the sonics compare to the original discs, however, the 1950's vintage sound is never less than acceptable. On the negative side, I found that the time interval between tracks is barely sufficient to allow the ear to transition from one song to the next.

Despite some shortcomings, this is still a decent collection of bop-oriented sessions.
