Paul Chambers Bass On Top Limited Blue Note 180gram Vinyl LP

Overview:

When jazz bass virtuoso Paul Chambers recorded Bass On Top, his third and final album as a leader for Blue Note, he was only 22 years old but already well established as one of the top bassists in jazz. This brilliantly seductive album features stalwarts Hank Jones on piano, Kenny Burrell on guitar, and Art Taylor on drums. Highlights include the chamber-jazz interpretation of Jerome Kern’s “Yesterdays” and a lightly swinging version of “Dear Old Stockholm,” a tune often associated with Miles Davis who was Chambers’ employer at the time.

Featured Tracks:

A1: Yesterdays
A2: You'd Be So Nice To Come Home To
A3: Chasin' The Bird

B1: Dear Old Stockholm
B2: The Theme
B3: Confessin'
