Some days you want to hear a bit of everything, so today's Rediscovery? Eberhard Weber's :rarum Selected Recordings, a compilation of some of his work as a leader and a guest for the venerable ECM label, ranging from his own Colours group to collaborations with Pat Metheny, Gary Burton, Ralph Towner, Norma Winstone and Jan Garbarek.

That he can no longer play bass, the result of a 2007 stroke, is a painful thing for his fans, assuaged only by the rich legacy he has already left. This compilation, its selections chosen by Weber himself, is not only a good entry point for those new to this wonderful bassist and composer, but a fine recording in its own right, thanks to ECM's usual astute track sequencing.

So, what are your thoughts? Do you know this record, and if so, how do you feel about it?
