Tree of Light is one of the last compositions I completed in 2020 (hence the silver Christmas tree) and the very last one Akiko and I filmed and recorded from our apartment in Sunnyside (Queens, NY) before moving to Reykjavík (Iceland), where we are currently based. Two of the baddest cats originally hailing from the Seine-et-Marne French département, namely Dominique Muzeau and Thibault Perriard, joined us virtually in this transition, contributing amazing bass and drum parts from their homes in the Paris Region and lifting our spirits in the process. I’m sure they’ll lift yours too! Enjoy 🙂

The lyrical themes of jazz with Word Out

“Jazz trio Word Out inflamed the Parvis’ cellar on Saturday night.

Led by Anglo-French charismatic pianist and inspired composer Jim Funnell, a Berklee College of Music alum, Word Out offers sophisticated yet accessible worlds.”
