Arcology is a collection of improvised solos. All of these solos were performed by Paul Chambers using the bow: Arco. In 1981 I published The Music Of Paul Chambers. This publication was the by product of my efforts to learn to play like P. C. At that time I chose not to transcribe any of Paul's bowed solos. This was probably because of my inability to perform them. Recently hearing Christian McBride swinging so well with the bow I decided I had to get Chambers' arco work down. My original plan was to provide a detailed study of P. C.'s jazz bowing style. As I started to transcribe I became so excited by Chambers' "melodies" I just kept writing them down. The detailed bowing study is going to take some more work to present it clearly but for now here is Arcology.

I hope you like it as much as I do.
