Sunday evening 18 May (8.30pm) at The Cooler in Leeds Sela Bar finds American trumpeter Andre Canniere touring his second album with pianist Ivo Neame (Phronesis) along with local rhythm section Sam Gardner (drums) and Sam Vicary (double-bass).
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 rave review from the Guardian, a Mercury Prize recommendation and inclusion in Jazzwise Magazine‘s ‘Albums of the Year‘. 2013 saw the release of Coalescence, his second album on Whirlwind, which received further accolades from the Guardian and firmly established Canniere as “one of the most compelling artists on the current London jazz scene” (The Scotsman).
