jt Un peu de pub perso ... HENRI TEXIER  Light on….

As his double bass, Henri Texier is a pillar, a reference mark planted in the middle of the European jazz. After a fulgurating beginning of career, at the end of the years 1960, with the American giants of Bebop like Bud Powell, Donald Byrd, Dexter Gordon or Kenny Clarke (and he was not twenty years old!)…
Then, he create a series of links, units, more inventive the ones than the others in the two decades which followed (with François Jeanneau, Daniel Humair, Michel Portal, Aldo Romano, Louis Sclavis, Bernard Lubat, Didier Lockwood, and so, and so…)

Henri Texier lent in the years 1990 his hot sonority and his talent of melodist to the young musketeers of the improvisation, decided well to cross iron with him: Bojan Z, Tony Rabeson, Julien Lourau, Noël Akchoté or Sebastien Texier can be given some to heart joy, the bass always deep and right of the Master “Texier dad " ensures the backs.
Recently-->> I attended one of his last concert at Arpajon, in Essone land, an exceptional quartet with his son Sebastien (sax), an incredible Irish drummer and a guitarist (Manu Codjia) with the solos of Jimmy Hendrix… We were well placed, at the first rank, and Philippe Salmon alias Néné the guitarist of Caballeros took superb photographs of “Dad” Texier.
