One of my favorites
Stephen E. Witham | Somerville, MA USA | 10/07/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Four long, atmospheric jazz pieces. Weber plays a fretless electric bass with that interesting "owOWWoo" timbre, typically with electric piano, soprano sax (another interesting timbre, like the oboe) and drum kit. Composed stuff with sections, counterpoint, transitions...like a lot of good ECM jazz.

"Sand Glass" has a bass ostenato played with the lowest string and what must be very high on the top string, washed over and counterpointed against by the electric piano, moaned at with a low sliding synth, and then sung over by the sax...and at one point some crumhorn-like instrument--maybe a mute on the sax?

"Left Turn" has a drifty acoustic piano solo that leads into a section in groups of five measures of 9/8. The beat is driving, almost frantic and yet soprano sax chords arch over the long measures making it almost stately.

Sonically, rhythmically, melodically engaging and hypnotizing. Unhurried trips to large beautiful out-of-the-way places where interesting things are happening."
Fabulous

"Yellow Fields is Eberhard Weber's best, by far. Unfortunately it is the least available of Weber's efforts; a striking commentary on the state of the music business today. It was recorded in 1975 and features Charlie Mariano on soprano sax and something called the shenai nagaswaram; Rainer Bruninghaus on keyboards; Jon Christensen on drums; and of course Weber on bass."
Absolutely stunning

"This was the first Weber recording I heard, owning it originally on vinyl, and it changed the way I listened to, and heard music for decades to come. Mariano's woodwind playing is some of the most melodic and haunting I have heard after all these decades. Weber to me has always defined the best of the Northern European ECM jazz; ethereal without the New Age saccharine. It takes place in a deep time and space. I don't think I have ever listened to this album during the daylight.
Long unavailable, congrats to ECM and Amazon for offering this in downloadable format."
