5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make them like this anymore. October 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Maybe it's silly to review an album that's "no longer available," but I feel the need to vent. What kind of world is this when you can walk into a record store and buy 35 copies of the new Brittany Spears, but even Amazonfrikkin'dot com, the world's most complete record store, can't secure you a CD of what is arguably one of the best albums of all time?
If you've never heard Weber's work, I suggest you start with "Silent Feet" or maybe "Fluid Rustle," though that one is atypical stylistically. "The Colors of Chloe" hails from Weber's most fruitful period, the mid-70's, when he also recorded "Yellow Fields," "The Following Morning" (my personal favorite), and several teriffic albums with Gary Burton and Pat Metheny. His later work ("Chorus" onward) never quite put all the elements together as effectively.
This music typifies everything that was good about Manfred Eicher's ECM label. The music is complex without being technical; melancholy without being maudlin; reflective without being self-absorbed. This is the music that new age could've been, if it had been less concerned about soothing the listener and more concerned about saying something substantive. Every track on this album drips with atmosphere and intrigue. Like most truly great music, though, "The Colors of Chloe" provides the listener with cake under the icing; with some musically valid substance justifying the ear candy. If, on some glorious morn, you find that Weber's classic albums are once again in print, I suggest you sneak into your son or daughter's room, steal his or her N'sync CD's, and trade them in on a complete Eberhard Weber library. One day, the kid will thank you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eberhard Rules November 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I remember when I first picked up the cool cover and checked out the credits on the back. As soon as I saw the 5 string upright(I am a bass player by the way) I put it in the stack I was purchasing. I put it on (we are talking vinyl)as soon as I got home and was blown away. This album and Eberhard became a huge influence in both my musical and private life. I have all his works and as many albums and cds he has played on in my collection as I can find. I had the pleasure of meeting him after a Colours gig in the earley 80,s and seeing in 1999 with Jan Garberek. When people compare his work to Jaco, I think they have totally missed the point, Eberhard is a composer first and a virtouso second. Hs compostions have a timeless quality and are original in the extreme. I hope in the grand scheme of things he will be recognised as the grand master in all things relating to making the bass a leading melodic voice.

"Colours of Chloe" caused a sensation when released and was the album that launched ECM into the stratosphere among top production studios. It remains my favorite album of all time. Years ago a bass player with the Indiana University School of Music who lived in my dorm introduced me to Eberhard Weber's 1974 masterpiece "Colours of Chloe". I don't remember his name but wish to thank him in this review. At the time, I had been listening to a lot of fusion and Mahavishnu Orchestra's "Birds of Fire", which in comparison seems harsh and unrelenting. I was mesmerized by the hypnotic sound of the piano, bass and horn on this album. I continue to be hypnotized by this stunning concept album today as I listen for the eight hundredth time.

Weber is one of a handful of innovative composers for bass and the creative force behind bringing the bass "out of the closet" and up front and center, Weather Report's Jaco Pastorius aside. Weber's playing is brilliant. Bruninghaus' contribution on keyboards is glorious. The interaction between all the musicians is seamless. One movement flows effortlessly into the next. If you can only buy one jazz CD, this should be it. Extrodinary music and beyond catagory!

5.0 out of 5 stars This album remains one of my "dear old friends". July 22, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Sometimes a set of music on an album or cd will get inside you, change you. This is one of those cases. I will always cherish the pieces on "Colours of Chloe". E.W.'s compositions are haunting; the piano work is excrutiatingly beautiful - the musicians are totally integrated.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT ALBUM-ONE OF MY FAVORITES May 13, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have been listening to this album for 20 or so years now and I still love it. It really touches your soul at times. Another favorite of mine from Eberhard Weber is "Following Morning". I sure hope it comes out on CD someday, it is also excellent! Eberhard takes you through many moods.
