Product Description:

Personnel: Paul Chambers (bass); John Coltrane (tenor saxophone); Donald Byrd (trumpet); Horace Silver (piano); Kenny Burrell (guitar); Philly Joe Jones (drums).
Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Hackensack, New Jersey on September 21, 1956. Includes liner notes by Leonard Feather.
Digitally remastered by Ron McMaster.
Four of the songs on hard bop bassist Paul Chambers' 1956 release WHIMS OF CHAMBERS include solos by saxophone legend John Coltrane.
Of the seven songs on this Blue Note CD reissue, four are more common than the other three because they contain solos by tenor saxophonist John Coltrane and have therefore been reissued more often. Actually there are quite a few solos in the all-star sextet (which includes the bassist-leader, Coltrane, trumpeter Donald Byrd, guitarist Kenny Burrell, pianist Horace Silver and drummer Philly Joe Jones) and all of the players get their chances to shine on this fairly spontaneous hard bop set. Coltrane's two obscure compositions ("Nita" and "Just for the Love") are among the more memorable tunes and are worth reviving. "Tale of the Fingers" features the quintet without Coltrane, the rhythm section stretches out on "Whims of Chambers" and "Tale of the Fingers" is a showcase for Chambers bowed bass. This is a fine effort and would be worth picking up by straightahead jazz fans even if John Coltrane had not participated. ~ Scott Yanow
