About this item

After teasing us with reissues of the insanely good "Varech" and "Amir" a couple of years back, the reissue gods finally get round to dropping number 3 of a must have series from the French double bass player. A member of France's earliest free jazz ensemble in the sixties, Texier's 70s solo output saw the musician create his own style of pagan jazz, working the bass like a bard from Gallic myth, keeping Asterix, Obelix and the rest of the clan entranced while Getafix works on the "potion"...

Dig in for deep forest freakouts, folkloric jazz masterpieces and a couple of more conventional piano-led jams.
