Eberhard Weber

Though not strictly a jazz bassist and certainly one of the least flamboyant improvisers, Eberhard Weber is among Europe's finest bassists. His style doesn't embrace either a bluesy orientation or an animated, energetic approach. Weber's influences are primarily European, notably contemporary classical and new music. His technique of using contrasting ostinato patterns in different voices was taken from composer Steve Reich. He's also made innovations in bass design. Weber added an extra string to his electric bass at the top in the early '70s; this extended its range and gave it a deeper, more striking sound. He added yet another string above that in the late '70s. Weber once doubled on cello but dropped it to concentrate on acoustic and electric bass. Weber's father taught him cello at six, and he began to play bass at 16. He worked in school orchestras, dance bands, and local jazz groups. He met Wolfgang Dauner while participating in the Dusseldorf Amateur Jazz Festival in the early '60s; they worked together over the next eight years, both as a duo and in the group Et Cetera. Weber worked with Dave Pike in the early '70s, and co-led the band Spectrum with Volker Kriegel. His early-'70s album The Colours of Chloe was one of ECM's most acclaimed. He formed the group Colours in 1974 and toured America in 1976, 1978, and 1979, heading it until 1981. Weber also played from the mid-'70s to the early '80s with the United Jazz and Rock Ensemble. During the '80s, Weber worked and recorded with Jan Garbarek and also wrote film scores and gave solo concerts. He continued recording with ECM, both with his group and with other musicians such as Gary Burton. Weber has several ECM titles available on CD, including 1993's Pendulum, 2001's Endless Days, and 2007s Stages of a Long Journey. As a longstanding member of Garbarek's touring group, Weber was often given his own segment in concerts to perform spontaneous compositions (rather than simply bass solos). He kept tapes of these performances between 1990 and 2007. He revisited those tapes and reworked them into a new album with its own sense of narration, featuring Garbarek and drummer/percussionist Michael DiPasqua. The album was released as Resume in 2012. ~ Ron Wynn, Rovi

I agree with previous; there are SO MANY great Weber albums. Yellow Fields was always one of my favorites. I heard Bill Frisell for the first time on Weber's Fluid Rustle in 1979 ... loved him ever since.
no mention of Miles or Weather Report know one left at EMI to care,,,and an overly selective discography what a shame.
Later That Evening...an o t h e r great recording
i dig...
improvisers. . .
certainly one of the least flamboyant improvisors what the hell does he mean by that?
And one more item, if you think he can't improvise, check out the youtube video playing Sara's Touch with Billy Cobham. He is an inspiration.
I agree with Stephanie!
Yellow Fields a classic Weber CD too.
Artist is great but he should fire the person that wrote his biography.

The first time I heard Eberhard's music, back in the early 70's, I fell in
love with it. His compositions are truly a gift for the soul and the
musicians that play with him are all outstanding. I have all of his many
wonderful CD's. I send him love and many blessings always.
Hey,where's the "Silent Feet" cd? Why isn't it listed in the discography? You guys should play it.We'd all enjoy it. Saw Eberhard way back in the 70's at Northwestern Univ.Beautif u l experience.L o v e to see him again.
"Endless Days", after quite a long interval his most recent studio album, is a must on Eberhard's selected discography. This elemental melding of jazz and classical approaches reflect the essence of "chamber jazz", and appears to me a sort of culmination of his "long journey" since long before I first met him and saw him perform in the '70s. A high water mark of his earlier vision is certainly the album "Yellow Fields" ('75).
Also check out Silent Feet, with Charlie Mariano an soprano,Rani e r Bruninghaus on keyboards,an d John Marshall on drums,one of my all time european favorites.Sl i m p a u l i .
let's not forget "later that evening", which included bill frisell, paul mcandless, lyle mays and michael di pasqua. weber and frisell together is magic.

Colours of Chloe invokes a waking dream state regardless of ones location or momentary vocation. Truly an awarness enhancer.
weber is a master musician virtuoso and composer. "fluid rustle" is one of the greatest albums of all time.

very "rich and smooth" like melted chocolate!
