Henri Texier Hope Quartet

Villa Ida Media Campus

TIP

"There are not many representatives of the jazz musician species who get better and better with age. The notorious troublemaker and lovable storyteller Henri Texier is one of them," Wolf Kampmann wrote in Jazzthing in 2013. One year later, one could convince oneself of this at the Opera House, when Texier made a guest appearance with his Hope Quartet at the 38th Leipzig Jazz Days. Born in Paris in 1945, the double bassist has been one of the great names of European jazz since the 1970s (when he recorded with Joachim Kühn, among others). He was awarded the Prix Django Reinhardt as early as 1977, and his album "Sky Dancer" has just been released, featuring his son Sébastien and Nguyên Lê, among others.

Now Texier the Elder returns with Texier the Younger as well as Jean-Charles Richard and Louis Moutin to Leipzig, more precisely to the Villa Ida. There, Thomas Brückner, a real expert of French jazz, curates the program: Kapital has already played several times, as well as Fabrice Tarel Trio, Edouard Bineau solo and with WARED, Sylvain Kassap Trio, Cholet Trio, Progressive Patriots...

Henri Texier (b), Sébastien Texier (sax), Jean-Charles Richard (sax) and Louis Moutin (dr)
