Funcoolio is a jazz fusion quartet from Latvia that plays sonic games with the local jazz traditions of earlier times but does not forget about these days as well.

Released on cassette at the very end of 2021, the album is also released on vinyl, which is the most authentic format for it. A light old-school feeling is intertwined with modern musical coquetry and sometimes jamming, as the Latvian quartet plays together with internationally known local saxophonist Deniss Pashkevich, as well as colleagues from France (saxophonist Fred Hormain), Germany (flautist Ilja Gussarov) and the United Kingdom (Rhodes piano player Michael Kasper).

The main author in the band is the experienced guitarist, George Panfilov, bassist Denis Gradalev also joins in writing, and Hammond organ player Vladimir Tuzov and drummer Yuri Osipovich add pretty colourful accents. If you are also interested in Vol. 1, then look back to 2014. On the other hand, Vol. 3 could be expected in 2024.

FunCOOLio is a creative union of like-minded persons - guitarist George Panfilov, drummer Juri Osipovich, bass guitarist Denis Gradalev, saxophone player Fred Hormain and organist Vladimir Tuzov.

With this line-up, FunCOOLio has been successfully performing on stage for the last ten years. It is best to listen to the ensemble live, but their second studio album perfectly conveys the energy of the live performances.

FunCOOLio Volume 2 is the second studio album by FunCOOLio.

The authors of the compositions on the album "VOL 2" are guitarist George Panfilov and bass guitarist Denis Gradalev. The material for the album was prepared during live performances and supplemented with new ideas, ripening for studio recording. Jazz musicians and friends of the band from Latvia, Estonia/Germany, France and Great Britain took part in the creation of the album. Each of the musicians on the release managed to put something of their own in the initial idea, and fill it with personal experience.
