Henri Texier "Varech" Disques JMS, 1977

I've listened to this LP quite a lot for the last past months. and i'm still amazed by its musical quality. This is a Jazz LP but not your common urban swing or Jazz/Funk extravaganza, no...how can i describe it ? Let's say modal intimate groove with a rural inclination and occasional wordless vocals.
"Varech" is the second Henri Texier solo album, and when i say solo, i mean solo. Texier is alone on this one and plays all the instruments (Double-bass, Oud, Flute, Bombard, Fender-bass and Percussions) using the rerecording technique. This second solo effort is very similar to its first one, "Amir", shared by Kristof Space Debris last january.

If you are into french Jazz, Bass oriented records or simply men with beard...This is surely one for you !
Oh yes, "Varech" was briefly available on CD about ten years ago but has been deleted and is now unavailable.


See you soon !


The zip file contains high resolution cover scan and tracks encoded at 256 kbps.

Je connaissais Les "là-bas" et L'éléphant parce qu'ils apparaissent dans la série de compils La Guêpe, mais pas l'album. Le son boisé de la contrebasse est vraiment classe... en fait, je trouve tout l'album extremement bien mixé, j'adore les instruments bien séparés avec la basse en avant. Excellent Texier. Merci l'Ami.

ah Varech ! One of my all time favorites - probably a "dessert island record" of mine...

those who love this (and Amir - thanks for the link!) should also check A Cordes et A Cris - while it's not a solo album I consider them as a trilogy.

This is really good, not really into jazz but this has its own unique vibe, got amir from space debris, which is also worth having, could you reccomend any more in a similar vein....

Sorry for the delayed answer anonymous. I may recommend François Rabbath "sound of a bass" or some Library LP's like Guy Pedersen & Raymond Guiot's "Contrebasse" on Telemusic or Guy Pedersen "Bass + bass + bass" on the Montparnasse 2000 label. Of course, those records are not similar to this Texier LP but more or less in the same vein.
