One of the most successful arrangements is the expanded Last Stage of a Long Journey. This tune started off as a quartet composition on the third Colors album, Little Movements, was further expanded on Later that Evening and now has evolved into a fully orchestrated arrangement here. It is expansive and cinematic in scope/5(17).
· Two years and plenty of touring would take place before Colours recorded its final disc, 's Little Movements, opening with another classic Weber composition that the bassist would revisit twice more—on his return to small ensemble playing following a year hiatus on Endless Days (ECM, ) and Stages of a Long Journey. "The Last Stage of a Long Journey" sets the tone for Colours' .
· Little Movements (ECM ) Recorded July at Studio Bauer, Ludwigsburg Engineer: Martin Wieland Produced by Manfred Eicher. The vast drone of “The Last Stage Of A Long Journey” cuts a thick line below the Steve Kuhn-esque intro. Like the silent monolith of A Space Odyssey, it mystifies as it enlightens. Saxophonic clusters punctuate a deep recurring thrum.
The album closes with two more Weber tunes, “The Last Stage of a Long Journey” by quintet and orchestra and “Air” performed solo by Weber. Weber has always stood out among jazz bassists, preferring to add the sound of his rich, emotive instrument to the harmonic and emotional mix of a piece rather than engage in solo histrionics/5(17).
