CD Reviews

Melodic distortions and Hypnotic landscapes

"Great, great bassist and great musician! Eberhard Weber in all his class. Nordic atmospeares with Weber double bass and bow, played in a very personal way. Melanchonic and hypnotic sound."

"This album is clearly not for everyone, but anyone who appreciates exploratory music from the late 1970s that has stood up well to time should definately investigate this album. For those who like Keith Jarret's "Arbor Zena", this project goes a step or two further. The recording features a limited orchestra of Oboe, French Horns, and Cellos along with EW and favorite piano sidekick Rainier Bruninghaus creates extremely vivid and dreamy imagery which is occasionally ponderous and almost scary at it's climax on the last piece "Mona II". EW really went out of his way to take his instrument to it's very outer range. Sounds especially good on a cold winter day or night."

"Recently acquired this after getting the "Later That Evening" cd a while

back. Eberhard Weber is a genius. As with his other recordings, you

don't catch it all on the first listen. He writes gorgeous melodies and

bass lines that stay in your head long after you've listened to them.

Weber's ECM 70's recordings with Rainer Bruninghaus on piano have always

been my favorites of his. They seemed to have such a perfect chemistry

together, and Weber's brilliant writing for strings and small groups with

Rainer (as on this cd) is beautiful indeed. Weber has a masterful way of

writing with subtle twists and turns that just mesmerizes you. Had this

on vinyl many, many years ago, and am in musical heaven listening to it

on cd. It's yet another ECM masterpiece from Manfred Eicher and his team

in Germany from the 70's. For me, it doesn't get any better than this.

For further proof of how great an artist Bruninghaus is, check out his two

ECM recordings as a leader (one has the fabulous trumpeter Kenny wheeler

on it). And, of course, "The Following Morning" is brilliantly recorded

as well. 10 million stars.
