“Canniere’s compositions contrast breezy folky jazz elements with a darker harmonic language that draws from Radiohead and a rawer rock-ish groove-based approach straight out of the New York alt jazz scene” – Jazzwise

Andre Canniere is an acclaimed trumpet player, composer and educator.

Described as an “imaginative newcomer” whose music is “audaciously crafted” and “rhythmically intricate contemporary-jazz sound” (Guardian), Canniere has toured globally with performances at Southbank Centre, Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Barbican, Birdland, the London Jazz Festival, The Hague Jazz Festival.

In February 2020, Canniere followed up his acclaimed 2016 album The Darkening Blue with Ghost Days, reuniting with singer Brigitte Beraha and saxophonist Tori Freestone, whilst introducing a new, all-star rhythm team of Rick Simpson (piano) Tom Farmer (bass) and Andrew Bain (drums).

Six of the album’s seven original compositions were inspired by a unique collaboration between Andre and the poets/writers Malika Booker and Rebecca Lynch.

Their live performance will include tracks from their latest album, where each piece had a poem as its starting point, defining the overall mood and the rhythm and phrasing of the melody, and the emotional message of the lyrics is beautifully delivered.
