Bassist Paul Chambers began playing professional gigs in New York City where he met such as pianist Barry Harris and trumpeter Thad Jones. He played with a lot of prominent musicians for a brief while, making a giant step in his career upon recording numbers such as 'A Little Taste' and 'Flamingo' with Cannonball Adderley in 1955. But it was joining the Miles Davis Quintet the same year that made his career.
