Named one of the best books of 2012 by The New York City Jazz Record
Winner of the 2013 Association for Recorded Sound Collections Award for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research in Jazz
This book should prove indispensable to students of jazz bass, historians of modern jazz and fans who love hard bop. It constitutes a reference work that every music library should have.
Notes: Quarterly Journal of the Music Library Association, March 2015, vol. 71, no. 3
Mr PC is a highly authoritative text, constructed with painstaking attention to detail and lucidity… If there is one book that will alter perceptions of the place of both Paul Chambers and his instrument in the jazz pantheon, then this is it.
Kevin Le Gendre, Echoes, 2013
The research into Chambers’ final years is enlightening and this is an excellent opportunity to re-evaluate his massive contribution.
