Henri Texier is a hero of world jazz. In a career stretching back to the 60s, heâ€™s played bass with American pioneers Bud Powell and Don Cherry, and with his peers in the evolution of a European jazz aesthetic â€“ 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 FranÃ§ois Courneloup, Sebastien Texier and drummer Louis Moutin - is a warm mix of filmic drama, fanfare, circus and swing. â€œAll jazz history lives within him, with a flavour of something wonderfully exotic â€“ a Corsican square, a North African party â€“ thrown in.â€ - Daily Telegraph Lineup: Henri Texier (bass) Sebastian Texier (clarinet/alto sax) FranÃ§ois Corneloup (baritone sax) Louis Moutin (drums)
