Konitz, Solal, & Texier

Here is a bit from a 1968 recording pairing Lee Konitz and Martial Solal.  I think this is a reissue of two albums: European Episode and Impressive Rome.  I am playing 'Collage on Standards,' a Dizzy Gillespie number.  It is also notable for the presence of bass player Henri Texier, whom I have listened to a lot. 
  • Lee Konitz: alto saxophone; 
  • Martial Solal: piano; 
  • Henri Texier: bass; 
  • Daniel Humair: drums.
 I just uploaded a piece from Solal's duet album with trumpet man Dave Douglas.  'Elk's Club' from Rue de Seine.
