Essential Eberhard Weber
Michael Kydonieus | San Francisco, CA United States | 11/05/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)
"This and Silent Feet are the essential Eberhard Weber albums. Euro-jazz, anchored by Weber's bass. Hypnotic, modal, no detectable blues feel, world music influences galore. Charlie Mariano's soprano sax solos are especially noteworthy. If you would like to read more reviews like this, check out JazzboNotes.com.
Desert Island Disc

"This is a Desert Island Disc for me - I never fail to be moved by its intense lyricism and its often jagged beauty. I don't understand how some of the other reviewers on these pages can refer to it as a precursor to smooth jazz and the like. There is nothing smooth about this album. Polished perhaps, shimmering occasionally, maybe even translucent, but smooth...? At times it's more like a deep pool, one from which different colours and tricks of light appear the more you stare into it and at other times it is a vast horizon dotted with colours like a Fred Williams landscape painting. What you have here is a collection of musicians playing at their prime and playing with skill, finesse, strength and a great harmonic invention. I was lucky enough to see this line up play this entire album and large portions of the other albums in a small club in Sydney back in the days and it was magnificent - certainly no watered down smooth jazz on offer there that night and Dizzy Gillespie would agree: he was sitting at the table behind us with a big "Boy am I enjoying this!" grin on his face! Mr. Mariano's work on this album is stellar and the shimmering and skittering drum work by Mr. Marshall is a constant surprise and delight - at times light as a feather and then muscular and angular, often in the same track. This is an album to immerse yourself in; an album that reveals its strengths continuously over time; an album of great beauty and a great accomplishment."
