Source: burning ambulance.

Joe Chambers is a legend. He made his name in the early 1960s, playing on a string of some of the most adventurous Blue Note Records sessions of the time. He can be heard on albums like Bobby Hutcherson‘s Dialogue, Wayne Shorter‘s The All Seeing Eye, Andrew Hill‘s Compulsion, McCoy Tyner‘s Tender Moments, and many more. He also backed Archie Shepp on Fire Music, On This Night, New Thing At Newport and For Losers, and he was the drummer on Chick Corea‘s debut album, Tones for Joan’s Bones. He maintained a long creative partnership with Hutcherson; the two men made something like 10 albums together.
