Andre Canniere

American trumpeter and composer Andre Canniere is fast establishing himself as a leading figure on the UK jazz scene. Prior to his move to London in 2008, Andre lived in New York City where he worked with artists such as Maria Schneider, Bjorkestra, Ted Poor, Ingrid Jensen, Donny McCaslin and Darcy James Argue. He has toured widely throughout the United States and Europe, including performances at Carnegie Hall, Birdland, London Jazz Festival, the Hague Jazz Festival and the Rochester International Jazz Festival.

Since his arrival in the UK, Andre’s profile has been steadily rising, both as a solo artist and a collaborator. His album ‘Forward Space’, released in 2012 on the Whirlwind Recordings label, received widespread critical acclaim with a five star review from the Guardian, a Mercury Prize recommendation and inclusion in Jazzwise Magazine‘s ‘Albums of the Year‘. Canniere will be releasing his second album on the same label in October 2013....

Mercury Prize Recommends

All About Jazz
“Canniere demonstrates an ability to mix and match influences from different genres to create an original concoction all his own….Canniere takes his inspirations from world politics and economics as well as from his own family, rendering Forward Space never predictable, but always played from the heart.”
