HENRI TEXIER-AMIR, LP, 1976, FRANCE


As a follow-up to my post of the third album by this legendary French jazz bassist (his c.v. including stints with Don Cherry and Didier Lockwood amongst others) and one time member of French psych/folk/prog masters Total Issue, here's his swooningly lovely solo debut, it's lump-in-throat human poignancy distilled from the sparest of ingredients, with supple buttery wafts of wordless vocalizations elevated to a plane of sheer soul conveyance alternately snaking across a heaving weave of bowed bass drone or negotiating their way through alternately thrummingly insistent and delicately intricate note configurations, occasionally offset by subtle hand percussion.
