Andre Canniere Andre Canniere

Andre Canniere is an acclaimed trumpet player, composer and educator currently based in London. Originally from the US, Canniere spent the first five years of his career in New York City where he worked with artists such as Maria Schneider and Darcy James Argue. Canniere has toured widely throughout the United States and Europe with performances at Wigmore Hall, Carnegie Hall, 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. As a solo artist he has released two critically acclaimed albums for the Whirlwind Recordings label. Canniere’s debut Forward Space received rave reviews from the press in 2012 including a five star Guardian review. Jazzwise Magazine hailed it as “one of the best recordings in a long time” and included it in their ‘Albums of the Year’ list. Coalescence, released in 2013, was also lauded by the press and firmly established Canniere as “one of the most compelling artists on the current London jazz scene” (The Scotsman).

In addition to his work as a bandleader and composer, Canniere maintains an active career as a sideman and session musician. He holds the trumpet chair in several London based bands including Henrik Jensen’s Followed By Thirteen, Dee Byrne’s Entropi and the Overground Collective and has collaborated with many of the UK’s most celebrated jazz musicians including Michael Janisch, Jasper Hoiby, Ivo Neame, Jim Hart, James Maddren and Alice Zawadzki. Canniere is equally at home outside the usual jazz circuit, having performed in bands on Britain’s Got Talent and with well-known acts such as Augustines and Stooshe.

The Scotsman ★★★★
“The American-born trumpeter has emerged as one of the most compelling artists on the current London jazz scene, and this follow-up to his acclaimed Forward Space more than justifies that claim. His rich and flexible tonal range and highly inventive improvisations are supported by a powerful quintet.”

The Guardian ★★★★★
“Exhilarating”

Jazzwise ★★★★
“One of the best debut recordings in a long time…a real gem”

All About Jazz ★★★★

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
