Joe Chambers has been described as one of the great drummers to come out of the ’60s — a master of dynamics and  percussive color.  Also a master of all mallet instruments, piano and a composer, he has performed with  jazz giants, including Freddie Hubbard,Donald Byrd, Charles Mingus, Wayne Shorter, Chick Corea, Sonny Rollins, Dizzy Gillespie and the Max Roach M’Boom Ensemble. With the Moving Pictures Orchestra, Joe Chambers displays a passion for jazz that reaches far beyond the confines of the studio or bandstand, beyond genre and characterization, beyond even the music and extends into the culture itself.
