Hi to all of you musically inclined web surfers and adventurous music-lovers out there! Welcome to funnelljazz.eu. I hope you’ll have an enjoyable experience here, and that you’ll find treats for your ears, mind, and spirit.
My name is Jim Funnell and I’m a French/British musician. I’ve spent a good amount of time in both France and the UK, as well as in the US where I studied (at Berklee College of Music in Boston) and lived for several years (mostly in Queens, New York). You can read more about me here if you want, but let’s get straight to the good stuff!
I’m thrilled to share my music with you here via three main outlets. The first two are bands, and the third is more of an educational undertaking.
AfuriKo – African infused jazz duo I co-lead with my wife and amazing percussionist Akiko Horii;
Jim Funnell’s Word Out – eclectic mix of modern, world jazz, free improvisation and jazz fusion;
FunJazz Piano Lessons – private lessons and resources such as transcriptions, arrangements, exercises, and so on.
