Like his double bass, Henri Texier is a pillar, a landmark within European jazz. After a dazzling career start at the end of the 60ís, alongside American bebop giants such as Bud Powell, Donald Byrd, Dexter Gordon or Kenny Clarke (he was not yet twenty !) and a highly inventive Unit series during the two following decades (with FranÁois Jeanneau, Daniel Humair, Michel Portal, Aldo Romano, Louis Sclavis, Bernard Lubat, Didier Lockwood, etc.), Henri Texier, during the 90ís lent his warm sound and his talent as a melodist to young unshakable improvisation musketeers.
With him, Bojan Z, Tony Rabeson, Julien Lourau, NoŽl Akchotť or Sebastien Texier can enjoy themselves to the full, the deep and accurate bass of the master is sustaining them.
