  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!
