AfuriKo – an African infused jazz duo I co-lead with my wife (and stunning percussionist!) Akiko Horii;

Jim Funnell’s Word Out – my band (a piano driven trio at its core, although sometimes expanded to include extra instrumentalists) offers an eclectic mix of modern jazz, world jazz, free improvisation and jazz fusion;

FunJazz Piano Lessons – private lessons and resources such as transcriptions, arrangements, exercises, and so forth… For the curious student looking to improve her/his jazz language, build a repertoire, jam out, and/or produce music!
