I bought this in 1979 barely out of my teens the same year Mitchell's 'Mingus' was released, and I was beginning to understand jazz improvisation, even as I had been listening to jazz since childhood. Somehow, Weber's "Silent Feet" suddenly crystallized it all for me, just as Mitchell had crystallized the synthesis of poetry and folk/jazz.
As one reviewer has duly noted, there are sections of the 17:00 title tune that can bring one to tears. The interplay between bass, sax, drums and Bruninghaus' galactic piano is exceptional. While there are many celestial moments in "Colors of Chloe" and "Yellow Fields", none match, for me, the series of blistering phrasings that make up this pivotal, sadly overlooked, ECM classic.
Please, please, lovers of beauty, buy this classic!
