Musician

Eberhard Weber

Born:

He began recording in the early 1960s, and released his first record, Colours of Chloë (ECM 1042), under his own name in 1973. In addition to his career as a musician, he also worked for many years as a television and theater director. He has designed an electric-acoustic bass featuring an extra C-string. His music, often in a melancholic tone, follows simple ground patterns (frequently ostinatos), yet is highly organized in its colouring and attention to dramatic detail. Weber was a notable early proponent of the solid-body electric double bass, which he has played regularly since the beginning of the 1970s. From the early 1960s to the early 1970s, his closest musical association was with pianist Wolfgang Dauner

Beledo: Seriously Deep

Read "Seriously Deep" reviewed by Chris M. Slawecki


Beledo's second MoonJune release flows through the listener's ears like the cinematic adaptation of an epic novel, but in sound. Seriously Deep quite deliberately moves from scene to scene (song to song), building up and releasing tension in music that sounds much too powerful and deep to have been primarily created by only three musicians: Uruguayan ...

Adam Berenson: Homages and Worlds

Read "Homages and Worlds" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Adam Berenson's Assemblages (Dream Play Records, 2021), a trio outing with bassist Scott Barnum and drummer Bob Moses, was the pianist/composer's return to an acoustic piano trio setting. But Berenson is a restless pioneer who plants a flag and moves on to new territory. Never far from his collection of electronics and synthesizers, he found a ...

Read "Once Upon A Time - Live in Avignon" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


Sono trascorsi quasi 15 anni da quel giorno del 2007 in cui il contrabbassista Eberhard Weber fu vittima di un ictus, le cui conseguenze lo lasciarono incapacitato a proseguire l'attività concertistica. La semiparalisi al lato sinistro di cui soffre da allora gli impedisce di riprendere in mano lo strumento e dedicarsi alla musica. Non è comunque ...

Karl Ackermann's Best Creative Music of 2021

Read "Karl Ackermann's Best Creative Music of 2021" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


2020 was a disaster and 2021 was less than a beacon of hope. COVID-19 is in the rear-view mirror but closer than it appears. The political clown cars are over capacity, still running on fossil fuel and spilling occupants into the drinking water. That said, jazz and creative music flourished in ways that could make us ...

Marc Johnson: Overpass

Read "Overpass" reviewed by Mario Calvitti


I dischi di solo contrabbasso non sono così frequenti come quelli di altri strumenti che maggiormente si prestano a essere suonati senza accompagnamento, ma nel catalogo ECM ne sono presenti diversi fin dai primi anni di vita dell'etichetta, dovuti soprattutto a Barre Phillips e Dave Holland (presenti anche con un duo), oltre che a Eberhard Weber, ...
