Once Upon A Time: Live In Avignon


Once Upon A Time: Live in Avignon, recorded at Avignon's Theatre des Halles in August 1994, presents Eberhard Weber's unique approach to the solo recital. The album sees the bassist balancing compositions from his albums Orchestra and Pendulum with a vibrant rendition of "My Favorite Things" and his own "Trio for Bassoon and Bass", revealing fresh aspects of his distinctive musical diction.

Reviewing one of the bassist's live shows the year this album was recorded, the Financial Times marvelled at Weber's musicianship, insisting that "it is hard to imagine that anyone else could play what Weber plays".

Condensed into a concise programme, Once Upon A Time: Live in Avignon captures the essence of Eberhard Weber's solo performance.

Eberhard Weber: bass

"Weber's extraordinary, layered soundworld, replete with atmospheric background thrums and pulses, sudden runs and spooky harmonic outbursts. At times sounding cosmically distant, or perhaps echoing from some Piranesi-esque vault, this is a singular talent playing a singular instrument." - ***** The Scotsman

"Fans of Weber, and fans of ECM, are bound to treasure this release. It's a fascinating document of the musician at his best, and there are few who could match his wondrous jazz canvases." - LondonJazz News:
