Recommended by TimeOut London, The Andre Canniere Group has been creating a stir in the modern jazz scene since its formation in New York City in 2005. The group performs challenging yet accessible music full of evocative harmonic explorations and complex rhythms, complemented by thoughtful improvisation. Much of the music, all of which is composed by Canniere, is rooted in jazz, but also draws heavily upon other genres including pop, classical and folk music.
Canniere formed the group in 2002 while studying at the Eastman School of Music and continued working with the original members after they had moved to New York City. For the next several years, Canniere entertained large and enthusiastic audiences regularly in and around New York with performances in venues including The Jazz Gallery, Birdland, The Knitting Factory, James Carney's Konceptions Series, Jimmy's 43, Kavehaz and CBGB's.
In 2008 Canniere relocated to London and has formed a UK-based version of the group. Since moving to London his group has been featured at the HSBC Cheltenham Jazz Festival and in 2009 Canniere was featured at the Riverfront Jazz Festival in Greenwich, London. In addition to performing at some of London's finest venues including Blackheath Concert Halls, The Vortex, Pizza on the Park, The 606 Club, The Cobden Club and The Spice of Life, Canniere also performs frequently in cities throughout the rest of the UK and Europe.
