Yellow Fields is an album by German double bassist and composer Eberhard Weber recorded in 1975 and released on the ECM label.[1]


The Allmusic review awarded the album four out of five stars.[2] The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded it the maximum four stars and placed it in their Core Collection, writing "Weber's masterpiece is essentially a period piece which nevertheless still seems modern. The sound of it is almost absurdly opulent: bass passages and swimming keyboard textures that reverberate from the speakers, chords that seem to hum with huge overtones. The keyboard textures in particular are of a kind that will probably never be heard on record again."[3]
