Biography

In March 2005, the city of Stuttgart celebrated the 65th birthday of native son Eberhard Weber with concerts at the Theaterhaus. A symphony orchestra and exceptional soloists convened to play new arrangements of some of Weber’s best known pieces in two sold-out concerts from which this album, Eberhard’s first live disc for ECM (and his first new ‘leader’ recording since ...

The recording quality is excellent, no mono or tinny nonsense from this ECM Re-issue.
Mr. W. G. Simpson
Eberhard's virtuoso bass lines are always incredible as well as the sax of Charlie Mariano and brilliant piano of Rainier Bruninghhaus.
Aaron J. Geddes
Definitely modern jazz but melodic and conceptually intelligent music that will demand repeated listenings.

Colours is a reissue in one 3 CD-pack of the three recordings of the extraordinary bassist, composer and arranger Eberhard Weber's influential group, Colours, which was comprised of Weber on bass, Charlie Mariano on soprano saxophone, flutes and various oriental reeds, Rainer Bruninghaus on piano and synthesizer, and Jon Christensen on drums, replaced by John Marshall for the second and third recording sessions. The group held together for half a decade, 1975-1981, playing live and recording. Their recordings, especially the first one, Yellow Fields (1975), influenced many musicians. Vibist Gary Burton added Weber to his group for two exceptional recordings, and also recorded Weber's best known piece, "Colors of Chloe." Weber showed up in collaboration with Ralph Towner and Jan Garbarek on Solstice, and the sound of Colours, as much as any sound, helped define the "ECM sound," an amalgam of American-style jazz and a cooler European sound that was in many aspects influenced by classical music and musicians. (On these discs, listen to Bruninghausen's long, elegiac piano solos in particular, or to the ensemble sound buildups that lead into solo passages.) But for all of its cooler sound palette, these are jazz performances. They are, at times, as hot as any jazz produced.

The best examples of what this amazing group accomplished are on the first two cuts on Yellow Fields, the first and by far best of these three exceptional discs. On the first cut, "Touch," the drummer and pianist lay down a pulse of sound --it throbs! Weber plays a looping obbligato on his handcrafted electric bass: his bass line obliquely implies the central melody but doesn't ape it. Mariano enters on soprano sax and Bruninghausen lays down chord spreads behind him. Weber continues his oblique commentary.

I concur with the other reviewers that the release of this box-set was indeed an excellent idea. I will now be able to enjoy Eberhard Weber's music for years to come after wearing out my vinyl copies of these three superb recordings. I wished that they would have included "The Colours of Chole" in this set because that disc was the foundation for this music and is very difficult to obtain without paying a kings' ransom. I hope that ECM will continue along this path of releasing masterpieces from their 1970's/80's vaults. To help the company continue to implement this excellent strategy, I strongly suggest that ECM release the following masterpieces:

1. Jack Dejohnette's Directions - "Untitled" (1976) and "New Rags" (1977)
2. John Abercrombie Quartet - "Quartet" (1979), "Arcade" (1980), and "M" (1981)
3. Arild Andersen - "Clouds In My Head" (1975), "Shimri" (1976) and "Green Shading Into Blue" (1978)
3. Art Lande and Rubisa Patrol - "Desert Mauraders" (1979)
4. Steve Kuhn - "Non-Fiction" (1978)
5. Miroslav Vitous - "Miroslav Vitous Group" (1981)
6. James Newton - "Axum" (1982)

These recordings, just like Eberhard Weber's Colours, helped to shape my appreciation and love for Jazz. My collection would welcome the above additions. Thanks ECM! Now let's get cracking on these other treasures that you are holding on to .

Peace!

Can it really be possible that the newest release compiled in this 3-CD boxed set dates from 30 years ago? But yes, this set includes three releases from Weber's "Colours" band: Yellow Fields (1975), Silent Feet (1977), and Little Movements (1980). All three releases feature Weber on bass, Charlie Mariano on soprano sax and flutes, and Rainer Brüninghaus on keyboards. Jon Christensen played drums on Yellow Fields, while the drum chair on the two subsequent recordings was occupied by John Marshall. These recordings have been hard to find lately; indeed, it is wonderful to have them back in this ECM boxed set.

Bassist Weber has long been a sideman and leader on numerous ECM recordings over several decades. His fat tone and lyrical style are readily recognizable. On these recordings, his lyricism steps to the forefront, as these albums flow along with gently rolling rhythms and a sense of the sheer joy of making music. It is hard to play these CDs without being swept into feelings of joy and exuberance. The music just flows, pulling the listener along, at times erupting into what seems to be sheer wordless song. For those who are either too young or for some other reason missed out on these recordings back in the `70s, this set offers a wonderful chance to find out what you missed.

This is a re-release(budget minded) of Eberhard Weber's first three albums with his band Colours! Who, by the way, are phenomenal! I personally got this collection for 'Yellow Fields'-which is the only one to feature Jon Christensens amazing drumming. I find this to be the best of the three, but possibly only because of my drummer preference! 'Silent Feet', which I have been listening to for years, is inherently a 'perfect' ECM album. And 'Little Movements picks up exactly where Little Feet ends. The musicianship on all three is top notch, and despite my love of Christensen's impressionist technique, John Marshall's (also a member of Soft Machine-don't miss out on them, either!) drumming is also incredible in both style and play. Eberhard's virtuoso bass lines are always incredible as well as the sax of Charlie Mariano and brilliant piano of Rainier Bruninghhaus. Now that you can own all three of these masterpieces for(at least at the time of my writing of this) the same price as any one of these albums individually. DON'T PASS THIS UP!
