“The songs deal with loss, anxiety and disappointment, yet are often uplifting in nature with a quirky sense of humour and an imaginative and hopeful message that works its way effortlessly through the music.”
★★★★ UK Vibe (full review)
THE DARKENING BLUE
“Another ambitious step for the trumpeter Andre Canniere and a very classy sextet, including pianist Ivo Neame, excellent saxophonist Tori Freestone and resourceful singer Brigitte Beraha… Canniere’s range-spanning trumpet and bright runs, and Freestone’s sensitivity to spacing and dramatic narrative accompany Beraha’s impassive eloquence with the lyrics… confirms his jazz-composing power and constructive writing for improvisers. The band is terrific.”
★★★★ THE GUARDIAN
Featuring Brigitte Beraha, Tori Freestone, Ivo Neame, Michael Janisch, Ted Poor
"The American-born trumpeter has emerged as one of the most compelling artists on the current London jazz scene... His rich and flexible tonal range and highly inventive improvisations are supported by a powerful quintet."
★★★★ THE SCOTSMAN
Featuring Ivo Neame, Hannes Riepler, Ryan Trebilcock, Jon Scott
"Forward Space is a promising blend of punchy Latin-funk, fusion guitar effects, loop-pattern pieces, sighing horn-led melodies – and clever writing, which establishes an exhilarating collective strength."
Featuring George Fogel, Hannes Riepler, Ryan Trebilcock, Jon Scott, Chris Vatalaro
AS OF YET
“Trumpeter Andre Canniere is yet another young musician who seeks to make music that not only draws on the worlds of Jazz, but also of Rock and elsewhere… the compositions are a far cry from the staid template contained on many Jazz records… harmonic drama and consistently shifting rhythmic sequences.”
Featuring Josh Rutner, Ryan Ferreira, Ike Sturm, Ted Poor
