Hidden Rooms

Andre Canniere is an American trumpeter currently based in London. He started his career in New York City and in 2016 released his most ambitious album to date, The Darkening Blue which presents exciting and haunting interpretations of poetry by Rilke and Bukowski. Canniere's ability to craft new contemporary jazz around poetry - either through accessible vocal melodies or impassioned free instrumental sections - has taken his music in an important new direction.
