About Joe Chambers

A member of the '60s fraternity that recorded some of Blue Note's greatest music, Joe Chambers can lay claim to a place alongside such innovative artists as Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, McCoy Tyner, Herbie Hancock and Bobby Hutcherson.

Born in Stoneacre, Virginia and raised in the Philadelphia area, Chambers worked around the Philadelphia area in his late teens and moved to Washington, D.C. in 1960.

In D.C., Chambers worked the famous Bohemian Caverns. Working in the Caverns, Joe had the opportunity to meet outstanding artists who performed in the area, and was urged to come to New York by Eric Dolphy, Freddie Hubbard and Wayne Shorter.

Arriving in New York in 1963, he performed and recorded with several of the more progressively inclined musicians associated with the Blue Note label. Some of Chambers' recording credits include: Freddie Hubbard's “Breaking Point"; Bobby Hutcherson's “Components," “Total Eclipse" and “Happenings"; Wayne Shorter's “ Adam's Apple," “Etcetera" and “The All Seeing Eye"; McCoy Tyner's “Tender Moments"; Charles Mingus' “Like a Bird"; and Chick Corea's “Tones for Jonas Bones." In 1970, Chambers joined Max Roach's percussion ensemble, M'Boom as an original member. Touring and recording throughout the 70's, M'Boom also released three albums, for Columbia, with Chambers contributing as featured composer and arranger.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
