Veteran French bass virtuoso Henri Texier has been consolidating his role as a gifted composer of north African-influenced world jazz for the past decade. This set keeps up the standard: voluptuous, haunting or effervescent melodies; improvisation from the swing tradition to the cutting edge; and a composer's balance of contrasting elements. There's an Afrobeat bounce to the opening guitar riff, before saxists Sébastien Texier and François Corneloup converse in a dialogue shaped by the traditions of Ornette Coleman and Albert Ayler
ECM with muscle? The bassist Henri Texier has some of the qualities you associate with that label. Pensive, refined and austere at times, he draws on the avant-garde without plunging headlong into the sonic maelstrom. Water Alert has its longueurs, but it is Texier's most assertive set for some time, his son Sébastien weaving compelling reed lines around the trombone and guitar.
