A bit about Paul Chambers ...

Paul Laurence Dunbar Chambers, Jr. (April 22, 1935 January 4, 1969) was a leading jazz bassist of the 1950s and 1960s. Born in Pittsburgh but raised in Detroit, he and Slam Stewart were the first jazz bassists to perform bowed solos. From 1955 to 1963 he was a member of the Miles Davis quintet, and performed on Davis' famous Kind of Blue. After leaving Davis he worked with Wynton Kelly for three years. He was one of the first bassists in jazz to play his instrument with a bow (arco) in addition to pizzicato, though many listeners feel that his intonation is somewhat unsatisfactory.
