Currently based in London, Andre was born in Pennsylvania and eventually moved to New York where he worked with artists such as Maria Schneider, Becca Stevens, Donny McCaslin, Kate McGarry, Ingrid Jensen and Darcy James Argue. Since his arrival in the UK in 2008, Andre’s unique contributions to the jazz scene, both as a bandleader and a collaborator, have garnered much recognition and praise from the press.
Ghost Days is Andre’s fourth release on Whirlwind and features a unique collaboration with poets/writers Malika Booker and Rebecca Lynch. Their words weave a common thematic thread throughout the album, forming a collection of songs that deal with loss, anxiety and disappointment. The words are evocative, with deep personal resonance and the music composed by Canniere both echoes and develops those emotions.
Ghost Days is an album of deep grooves, sweeping melodies, rich harmony and powerful improvising; it is bound together by the combined creativity of the band as well as the individual expressive voice of each musician.
