Rob Palmer [+]
Rob Palmer is a Senior Probation Officer and a semi-professional bass player of twenty-eight years experience, who has played jazz for most of that time. He has performed and recorded with some of the leading British jazz musicians including Jim Mullen, Iain Ballamy, Stan Sultzman, Janusz Carmello, Dave DeFries, Tim Whitehead and Roy Williams. His ambition is to play with one of these guys twice.
In 1957 Chambers was afforded the opportunity to become involved in a series of, now classic, recordings with Miles Davis, the Birth of the Cool sessions. This Chapter considers those recordings and the events around them.
