Guitarist Terje Rypdal is an incendiary and influential figure among electric guitarists. Recording for ECM records since 1971, he’s blazed a trail noted for his tone bending colors and free improvisation. We celebrate his 70th birthday in the Echoes Podcast.
Eberhard Weber is the legendary German bassist who created one edge of the ECM sound. He can’t play bass anymore, but guitarist Pat Metheny has orchestrated his bass solos into an epic big band composition. Metheny, vibraphonist Gary Burton, and Eberhard Weber talk about this important musician.
