In January 2015 musicians and listeners converged upon Stuttgart’s Theaterhaus for two consecutive nights to celebrate the 75th birthday of Eberhard Weber. The concerts centered around a specially commissioned 35-minute suite by Pat Metheny, with whom Weber had played and recorded back in the 1970s. Featuring Metheny, the SWR Big Band conducted by Helge Sunde, Gary Burton, bassist Scott Colley and Danny Gottlieb on drums, the composition was arranged around recordings of solos by Weber. Other performers during the two nights playing selections from Weber’s vast body of work were Weber’s longtime companions Jan Garbarek, Paul McCandless and arranger Michael Gibbs, all drawing ovations from the packed house. “A truly special event, this.” Michael Tucker, Jazz Journal.
This is a song from Lawrence Hammond’s first solo album titled Coyote’s Dream, released on Takoma Records in 1976. It was produced by Charlie Mitchell and Lawrence Hammond. It features Byron Berline on fiddle.
The Judds and Larry Sparks covered Hammond’s John Deere Tractor and Doc Watson covered George Gudger’s Overalls from the same album.
A great afternoon at Duncan’s – after demolishing his famous chilli (meat and veg versions) we sat down to a comfortable musical feast, interrupted only by the occasional reminiscence and anecdote, old men looking for glasses and the odd toilet break; also an excellent half time dessert of finest cheesecake from Mr Waitrose and the famous Grasmere gingerbread.
