Eberhard Weber: Surveying A Musical Life

Jason Crane By

Sign in to view read count


Jason Crane interviews bassist Eberhard Weber. Weber's name is synonymous with the "ECM sound, because he's been the bassist of choice on classic ECM recordings dating back to the label's founding three decades ago. Since the early 1980s, Weber has played in saxophonist Jan Garbarek's band. To celebrate his 65th birthday, the city of Stuttgart, Germany, threw Weber a two-night concert party. He was joined on stage by an orchestra, Garbarek, vibraphonist Gary Burton, and others from his musical career. The resulting album, Stages Of A Long Journey (ECM, 2007), is Weber's first live recording and a wonderful testament to his virtuosity as both bassist and composer.
