Info for For 2 Akis

An ECM debut for a unique Japanese-French-German trio, with a lyrical sound of its own. Drummer-leader Shinya Fukumori, also the principal composer for the band, is an imaginative melodist at several levels, and the attention to timbre and detail and space which distinguishes his drumming is also reflected in the color-fields of his free-floating ballads. The spaciousness of the music leaves room for expression to tenorist Matthieu Bordenave and pianist Walter Lang. Bordenave has a deceptively fragile tenor tone, of considerable emotional impact, and Lang, one of Lee Konitzs chosen duo partners in recent years, is a subtle player, patiently shoring up the whole context. Together, the members of this Munich-based band have created something new and fresh. For 2 Akis was recorded at Studios La Buissonne in the South of France in March 2017, and produced by Manfred Eicher.

Shinya Fukumori
Known for his melodic and rhythmic approach with a wide range of dynamics to drumset playing. Another feature of his playing is his unique and sensitive cymbal-work, which creates a very distinctive sound.

A Munich-based drummer, Shinya Fukumori was born in Osaka, Japan on January 5h, 1984. After moving to the U.S. at the age of 17, he attended Brookhaven College and University of Texas at Arlington. He finished his studies at Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. where he received several awards. A short while after graduating from the school with Magna Cum Laude, he relocated to Europe, which he believes is best suited to his musical style.

Fukumori has played in a very wide range of musical situations with many different projects. He has toured and performed worldwide, including Germany, France, Estonia, Romania, Belgium, Switzerland, Mexico, and U.S.A., and his own trio (with Walter Lang on piano and Matthieu Bordenave on saxophone/clarinet) has recorded in April, 2015 and was debuted with a tour in Japan in October, 2015.
