Andre Canniere Quintet

Acclaimed American trumpet player now living in London Andre Canniere leads an all-star quintet playing music from his latest album The Darkening Blue.

Originally from rural Pennsylvania (USA), Canniere spent the first five years of his career in New York City where he worked with artists such as Maria Schneider, Becca Stevens, Donny McCaslin, Kate McGarry, Ingrid Jensen and Darcy James Argue. He has toured widely throughout the United States and Europe with performances at Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, the Barbican, Birdland, the London Jazz Festival, The Hague Jazz Festival and the Rochester International Jazz Festival.

Since his arrival in the UK, Canniere’s profile has been steadily rising, both as a solo artist and a collaborator. In 2012 Canniere released his critically acclaimed debut Forward Space on Whirlwind Recordings (“the new label of the moment” – BBC Radio 2) which Jazzwise Magazine hailed as “one of the best recordings in a long time” and listed as one of their ‘Best Albums of 2012’. The following year Canniere released Coalescence, his second Whirlwind album which was equally lauded by the press and firmly established Canniere as “one of the most compelling artists on the current London jazz scene” (The Scotsman).

In 2016, Canniere released his third album The Darkening Blue on Whirlwind featuring the “imposingly original” (Guardian) saxophonist Tori Freestone, pianist Ivo Neame (of Phronesis fame), “virtuostic and emphatic” (Guardian) bassist Michael Janisch, and US drummer Ted Poor (Bill Frisell, Cuong Vu, Ben Monder).

Canniere’s music has been played on radio stations across the world including BBC Radio 2 and Radio 3 (UK), RTE Lyric fm (Ireland), Radio Cardiff (Wales) and Radio Bremen (Germany).
