Eberhard Weber – Yellow Fields (Album)

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Yellow Fields is an album by German double bassist and composer Eberhard Weber recorded in 1975 and released on the ECM label.

The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded it the maximum four stars and placed it in their Core Collection, writing “Weber’s masterpiece is essentially a period piece which nevertheless still seems modern. The sound of it is almost absurdly opulent: bass passages and swimming keyboard textures that reverberate from the speakers, chords that seem to hum with huge overtones. The keyboard textures in particular are of a kind that will probably never be heard on record again.” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yellow_Fields)
