Paris-based record producer Martin Meissonnier is among the main producers of worldbeat and cultural recordings. A pioneer and spokesman for the house studio motion, Meissonnier offers overseen albums by such performers as Ruler Sunny Ade, Ray Lema, Fela Kuti, Cheb Khaled, Amina, and Haruomi Hosono. Inside a middle-’90s interview, Meissonnier stated, “we’re coping with a golden age group of cultural music.” Primarily attracting attention like a acoustic guitar and keyboards participant for rock rings, Meissonnier became captivated by jazz and improvised music. In 1975, he started advertising jazz concerts and French trips for Artwork Blakey, Dizzy Gillespie, Artwork Outfit Of Chicago, Chico Freeman, Charlie Haden, Jan Garbarek, and Expenses Evans, and managing jazz performers including Don Cherry. 3 years later, he created his first record, Don Cherry’s Music.
