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?

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
