HENRI TEXIER - AMIR (1996)

FRENCH MASTER OF BASS
ARTIST`````HENRI TEXIER
ALBUM`````
AMIR
GENRE`````POST-JAZZ SOMETHING, EXPERIMENTAL, FUSION

YEAR````````1996


ABOUT:
Henri Texier is an outstanding French bassist who has concentrated most of his activity in his native land. This intricate, gentle album is definitely one of his greatest works.

I can't find a decent amount of information anywhere on this album but I can surely recommend it.

Enjoy.

Henri Texier has a strongly physical approach to the bass, although his tone is often described as "bell-like." American auditors may feel that Texier simply walks a crooked line between hard bop and free, but in France Texier has gained recognition for his work in developing a type of jazz that is uniquely French and not beholden to American models. In June 2001, Texier was made a Chevalier of the l'Ordre National de la Légion d'Honneur, the highest honor the French government accords to its artists.

Hey thanks for all this wonderful music. I've been listening to this Henri Texier album and been increasingly stoked on it. I especially like the second track- how much it changes "Le Sage..."

Well, thanks for the songs

it's a great way to bring some new music, and new artists too. I always enjoy seeing another artists process. I learn so much. Really makes me want to pull out my own blog, because I've got the same blog with similar items.

For all lovers of this bass owner, I recommand the album SUITE AFRICAINE (feat. TEXIER).
