HENRI TEXIER "An Indian's Life"

„You can rely on Henri Texier, because although the French bassist is not exactly stingy with his own productions, he always has something to say. This applies both to the composer and bandleader Texier and to the bassist, whose solos are without exception highly motivated. The life of the North American Indians - a deliberate choice given the title of the album - has been on the Frenchman's mind for many years. On "An Indian's Life", he once again refrains from any didactic or instructive approach. His music is more like a cinematic snapshot, made up of his own impressions, inspiration from the singing and drumming rituals of the First Nations and memories of Western soundtracks. Texier is like the medicine man who brings about the inner cohesion of his seven-member tribe with his gravitational bass. The narrative force of this album is just as great as the variety of composed and improvised melodies.“ (Wolf Kampmann, Jazz thing 152, translated with DeepL.com)
