Détail de l'évènement

Le Barbizon est heureux d’accueillir AfuriKo et Jim Funnell’s “Word Out” en concert.

Rencontre entre le jazz infusé d’Afrique du duo AfuriKo, et celui, éclectique, métissé et festif, du pianiste Jim Funnell et de son groupe “Word Out”.

Afuriko

AfuriKo est un duo jazz infusé d’Afrique composé de la percussionniste Akiko Horii et du pianiste/claviériste Jim Funnell. Tel un griot des temps modernes, ils célèbrent ensemble un vaste patrimoine traditionnel à travers le prisme de rythmes envoûtants et d’harmonies atypiques. Sur scène, Jim et Akiko se livrent à un dialogue quasi télépathique : les histoires ancestrales du djembé, intégrées à un ensemble complet de percussions à main, se mêlent sans heurts aux couleurs électriques des claviers et de la basse au synthétiseur. Leur troisième opus Tao (2019), financé avec succès sur Kickstarter et chroniqué dans des médias tels que London Jazz News, All About Jazz et Festival Peak, est un voyage jazz chamanique qui nous mène de l’Afrique ancestrale au New York contemporain, imprégné de grooves profonds avec des nuances de Funk, de Pop, de Reggae, de musique bulgare et d’Enka. Le duo s’est notamment produit sur le plateau de Congahead.com et en tournée au Royaume-Uni (London Jazz Festival, Ronnie Scott’s), aux États-Unis (ShapeShifter Lab), au Japon (Kanazawa Jazz Street), en France (Sunset-Sunside, Le Baiser Salé), en Suisse (Territet & Co.),
en Uruguay (Jazz a la Calle), en Allemagne (JazzLab), en Hollande (Theater Vrijburcht), au Népal (Jazzmandu) et en Corée du Sud (Jazz Alley).

Début du concert : 20h

Jim Funnell’s Word Out

Dirigé par le pianiste et compositeur Jim Funnell, “Word Out” propose un jazz éclectique et métissé. S’épanouissant de manière ludique au fil d’échanges colorés, la musique du groupe puise au sein de diverses traditions, proches et lointaines, dans un véritable esprit de fête. Une inspiration venue de sources littéraires vient aussi, bien souvent, l’imprégner : en résonance avec la perception qu’avait Rilke de la poésie, la composition et l’improvisation jazz sont appréhendées en tant que véhicules idéaux pour exprimer d’infinies nuances d’émotion. Avec Word Out, Jim a publié trois albums (Word Out, Spirit of the Snail, et Live in Japan) salués par la critique (chroniques sur All About Jazz et Le jars jase jazz), un single
reggae/jazz (Lesser Vice) avec “l’activiste dub” Umberto Echo, a remporté le prix de composition en 2011 aux Trophées du Sunside (Paris), et s’est produit à l’international dans des salles et festivals tels que ShapeShifter Lab, Rockwood Music Hall (New York), Paris Music Festival, Sunset-Sunside, Improphile, Le Baiser Salé, Jazz à Vanves, Jazz de Mars, Jazz en Touraine (France), SOMETIME Kichijōji, JZ Brat, Royal Horse (Japon), et le Malta Jazz Festival.

Participants à cet évènement

  • Akiko Horii

    Akiko Horii

    Born and raised near Kobe, Japanese-French jazz percussionist Akiko Horii was never afraid of bold moves growing up: after leaving her native Japan alone at the age of fifteen to attend high school on Long Island (NY), she made a radical shift from studying classical piano to devoting herself to West African music and dance in college (CalArts), with a particular focus on the djembe and Ewe drumming from Ghana. She later spent several months in Ivory Coast, Guinea, and Mali, learning from masters and performing for local ceremonies. Her deep sense of rhythm and graceful abstractions notably brought her into the spotlight with several performances on Congahead. In addition to displaying an impressive array of intricate grooves on the three albums she produced with AfuriKo (African infused jazz duo coled with pianist/keyboardist Jim Funnell), Akiko’s skilful arrangements and original compositions are showcased on her own percussion group’s eponymous release Les Elles du Tambour (2012).

    The band played throughout France, including appearances at Art Rock Festival and at the Studio de l’Ermitage opening for Ethio-jazz unit Akalé Wubé. A multifaceted artist versed in numerous musical styles of the African Diaspora, Akiko has toured for many years, working with Django Bates’ Loose Tubes, Andy Narell, Monette Marino (under the direction of Mamady Keïta), Zalindê, the Mariachi Divas de Cindy Shea, Oxmo Puccino, Kery James, Grand Corps Malade, and Ibrahim Maalouf to name a few. She has performed in fourteen countries across four continents, at venues and festivals such as Jazz a la Calle (Uruguay), the London Jazz Festival, Kathmandu Jazz Festival (Nepal), Ronnie Scott’s (London), Herts Jazz Festival (UK), Kanazawa Jazz Streets (Japan), Jazz à la Villette, the Palais des Congrès, and the Olympia in Paris, Coburg Samba Festival (Germany), Festival International de Timgade (Tunisia), Festival +KSamba (Mallorca, Spain), and the Cannes Film Festival. As an educator, Akiko was musical director for Cardiff University’s West African drumming and dance ensemble “Lanyi” in 2016, and has led workshops and master classes at several other institutions (Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, Middlesex University in London, l’Union des Musiciens de Jazz in Paris, Munich International Ballet School, etc.).

  • Jim Funnell

    Jim Funnell

    Anglo-French pianist and composer Jim Funnell started leading his own band in his early teens, performing at jazz clubs by the time he was in high school. Dedicating himself to the study of both classical and jazz piano, he was awarded a full tuition scholarship from Berklee College of Music, where he was exposed to a diversity of styles and cultures. At Berklee, in addition to studying with jazz luminaries such as Danilo Pérez, Joanne Brackeen, Laszlo Gardony, David Fiuczynski, Joe Lovano, and George Garzone, Jim had the opportunity to perform with Dave Douglas, Marcus Miller, Meshell Ndgeocello, and Yellowjackets members Russell Ferrante and Marcus Baylor. Upon graduation, he traveled to Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay, and Brazil, soaking up Latin America’s folklore and Afro-Latin rhythms. These early experiences helped shape both his musical language and purpose of inspiring and encouraging uniqueness in others. Jim Funnell has released five albums as a leader/co-leader of both his own group “Word Out” (postmodern jazz) and AfuriKo (African infused jazz duo with percussionist Akiko Horii). Drawing from diverse influences from around the world in a spirit of respect and celebration, he has notably garnered reviews from All About Jazz, London Jazz News, and Jazz Magazine. His colourful approach to writing music earned him the Composition Prize at the “Trophées du Sunside” in Paris (2011) as well as SACEM’s “Aide à l’autoproduction” (funding for self-produced albums provided by the French Society of Authors, Composers, and Publishers of Music). Constantly taking his music on the road, Jim has performed at numerous venues across seventeen countries (in Europe, Asia, the Americas, and Africa) and festivals such as the London Jazz Festival, Balkan Trafic! (Brussels), Jazz a la Calle (Uruguay), Kathmandu Jazz Festival, Kanazawa Jazz Street (Japan), JazzQ (St. Petersburg), Malta Jazz Festival, Jazz en Touraine, Festival Cinéma d’Alès Itinérances, Festival des Musiques Sacrées de Paris (France), and Central Park SummerStage (New York). As a sideman, he has played and recorded with artists from across a wide musical spectrum (David Fiuczynski, New York Gypsy All Stars, Chico Freeman, Ravy Magnifique, Tiger Okoshi, Philippe Lopes de Sa, …) Jim teaches both privately and in workshop/masterclass settings (BRICKS Music Salon in Tokyo, Cardiff University School of Music in Wales, Improphile/Jazz de Mars in France, Koyo Conservatory in Kobe, Euro Institute of Music and Arts in Malta…) He was nominated Jazz Piano Teacher of the Year 2019 at Lessonface.com.
