HENRI TEXIER SAND WOMAN

December 2018

To explore! Always to explore!
New! Always new!Jazz musicians never know for sure they’re done with exploration.
Go further, always further but not so far!Discover! Always discover!...Surely, but not necessarily, in new territories...


Close by, there is always music to embrace, to replay its destiny, to walk along distant paths again, to reveal new sensations, different vibrations, to give a soul to compositions, old, forgotten or blurred.
For this new album I chose some solo recordings from my JMS discs that I have never played with my own bands, tracks that were recorded more than forty years ago: Amir, Les La??Bas, Quand Tout s’arre?te; plus Indians from the 90s and two recent compositions: Hungry Man and Sand Woman.
I imagined of getting a new band together for a concert that celebrated the anniversaries of the festival EUROPA DJAZ of Le Mans and my first label, JMS.

For this new adventure I thought of Se?bastienTexier companion of “biento?t toujours” and Manu Codjia, one of the greatest musicians that I know, whom I did not play with for soon five years, plus Vincent Le? Quang and Gautier Garrigue.

Having played a few times with V. Le? Quang in total improvisation after an invitation from Aldo Romano, I really appreciated his approach to Jazz Music with a lot of serenity but also with passion and density. I also realised that the timbres of his saxophone would create beautiful textures with the reeds of S. Texier and the sound palette of M. Codjia’s guitar.

It seemed to me that being called “Garrigue” could not make you a musician without inspiration! Attracted by his name I had followed Gautier’s career in the press and finally went to listen to him. Manu Codjia had already played with him and had confirmed to me that stylistically it would suit my way of imagining music. From the first session I was convinced by his “rhythmic breathing”, the sound, his way of dancing “on the crest of the waves of the tempo”, his “deep lightness” and his supple and intense swing.
