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.
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.
