Fidel Fourneyron

Born in southwestern France, Fidel Fourneyron moved to Paris in 2006 to complete his training in the class of jazz and improvised music at the Conservatoire. There, he met people and collectives that proved decisive for his aesthetic choices and future collaborations — including the COAX and UMLAUT collectives, les Vibrants Défricheurs and le Tricollectif, all of whom he still works with regularly. Drawn to improvisation (as part of the National Orchestra for Creation, Experimentation and Musical Improvisation) as much as to contemporary music (he worked with the Ensemble Hodos), Fidel is also fond of great swing orchestras and is a soloist in the Umlaut Big Band, which specializes in 1920-30s dance music. Spotted by the biggest names in contemporary jazz — among whom Marc Ducret who asked him to be part of his Real Thing #3 sextet — Fidel joined Olivier Benoit’s Orchestre National de Jazz in 2014. Together with Roy Nathanson (Lounge Lizards), he was a guest musician for French quintet Papanosh’s thunderous tribute to Charles Mingus, called “Oh Yeah Ho!” His recognizable touch can also be found in Radiation 10, Jukebox, Eve Risser’s White Desert Orchestra, Marc Ducret’s Tower Bridge and Tricollectif’s Tribute to Lucienne Boyer. Fidel is often invited to perform as a soloist (European Youth Jazz Orchestra, MGH Orkestar) and asked for masterclasses (Conservatories of Poitiers, Tarbes, Blois, Angoulême, or for Dijon’s Tribu Festival, etc.)

Un Poco Loco: Ornithologie

Read "Ornithologie" reviewed by Mark Corroto

Somewhere Han Bennink is very jealous of the music making of the trio Un Poco Loco. The master of 'New Dutch Swing' hijinks would give his right crash cymbal to perform music in the manner this trio covers Charlie Parker on Ornithologie. The aptly designated Un Poco Loco ('a bit crazy') trio is trombonist Fidel Fourneyron, ...

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
