Henri Texier is a hero of world jazz. In a career stretching back to the 60s, he’s played bass with American pioneers Bud Powell and Don Cherry, and with his peers in the evolution of a European jazz aesthetic – Michel Portal, Louis Sclavis are just two.
His own groups are infused with a fascination for jazz as a global music and his most recent band The Hope Quartet - with saxophonists François Courneloup, Sebastien Texier and drummer Louis Moutin - is a warm mix of filmic drama, fanfare, circus and swing.
“All jazz history lives within him, with a flavour of something wonderfully exotic – a Corsican square, a North African party – thrown in.” - Daily Telegraph
Lineup: Henri Texier (bass) Sebastian Texier (clarinet/alto sax) François Corneloup (baritone sax) Louis Moutin (drums)
