Henri Texier - Colonel Skopje (Evidence/Label Bleu)
I discovered this CD, recorded in 1988, just last year.  It's wonderful. Joe Lovano & John Abercrombie fans take note! ;)

Similar line up on this one too

All Texier albums on Label bleu come highly recommended. They are a great run, his French and adopted French bands are every bit as good as the Transatlantik Quartet. I'd say that they're better on a number of the releases. Sclavis, Romano, Deschepper, Ferris, Rabeson - there's some great players on these releases and Texier's writing is always worth the entry fee

Texier is always worth it. I think I prefer his European bands. On this one I didn’t really hear the personalities of his famous band mates. Lovano was particularly anonymous. Sorry Joe😮

Thanks for the heads-up on Izlaz, mjazzg!  :tup  I wasn't familiar with that one.  I do have several of Texier's other recordings on Label Bleu with his European bands.  . . . I'm probably in the minority here, but I gotta admit that I prefer Colonel Skopje to some of Texier's more well-known records like Mosaic Man.

We all hear things differently.  Often one person's dross is another person's gold -- and vice versa.  ;)
