    1. You're welcome, Anon. I'm glad I fixed this link - it was broken about an hour ago!

  2. Lucky me then! Thanks again. So many gems in your collection...
    Cheers from France.

  3. Weber a fucking genius. Built his own bass, played his own compositions with amazing fellow musicians. Chloe is a jazz haiku wrapped in blissful timeless splendor! Thank you!

  4. Thank you for this saves me to make a digital copy of the vinyl, which is in storage. I very much recommend to listen and purchase the new ECM tribute album "Hommage à Eberhard Weber", which was recorded for the 75th birthday of 5 string bass maestro by many of his famous collaborators (Burton, Garbarek, Metheny) to name just a few!
