Bassist Eberhard Weber's "Colours" is a quartet also including Rainer Bruninghaus on piano and synthesizer, Charlie Mariano on soprano and flutes, and drummer John Marshall. On their fairly typical ECM set, the generally introspective music develops slowly and the occasional fiery moments are outnumbered by the quiet spots. A close listen does reveal some fine playing but most jazz collectors will probably think of this set as being superior background music.
