There are at least three artists who have recorded under the name of Paul Chambers. 1. Paul Laurence Dunbar Chambers, Jr. (April 22, 1935, Pittsburgh, PA, USA – January 4, 1969, New York City, NY) was a leading jazz double bassist. A prominent figure in many rhythm sections during the 1950s and 1960s, his importance in the development of jazz bass can be measured not only by the length and breadth of his work in this short period but also his impeccable time, intonation, and virtuosic improvisations.
