The Sunday Jazz Brunch Presents

Musician's Corner: Pierre Chambers, Paul, and Dear Ann

Air Date: 5/7/2023 on 90.5 WICN 8am-12pm ET

Ann and Paul Chambers


His dad was famed bass player Paul Chambers. You've probably heard his bass playing on an album by Miles Davis (Kind of Blue) or John Coltrane (Giant Steps).

But the famous Paul Chambers not only played bass - he wrote songs. There is one song he wrote for his wife Ann, entitled Dear Ann. It is this song that first caught my attention when Pierre Chambers, the son, recently came out with his debut CD as a vocalist. 

It seemed to me that there were a delightful number of twists and turns in the song, and I wondered if it was difficult to sing. I contacted Pierre Chambers and he agreed to talk about this song on The Sunday Jazz Brunch. The result is this week's Musician's Corner segment.

Tune in at 9:00 am ET to hear Pierre Chambers talk about his music during Musician's Corner.

This song is a real labor of love, for all parties involved, as you will hear when you tune at 9:00 am ET.  Pierre Chambers wrote the lyrics to his dad's song.

Check out the original version of the song from a 1956 recording by the Paul Chambers Sextet. The new version sounds a bit different, of course.

A lot of great jazz has come in. Taste it every Sunday morning on the Sunday Jazz Brunch, 90.5 WICN.
