American trumpeter Andre Canniere relocated from New York to London in 2008, since when he has enjoyed a rapidly rising reputation as a collaborator, composer and band leader. His music is notable for the way in which is manages to merge a punchy New York drive with the genre-busting flexibility that characterises so much of the young London scene.

This is beautifully expressed through the outstanding group that he brings to the Cluny, and whose first album 'Forward Space' received a 5 star review in the Guardian and was described as "one of the best debut recordings in a long time" in Jazzwise magazine. There are elements of Latin-funk, fusion guitar effects (from Austrian-born Hannes Riepler, another rising star of London's international jazz melting pot), looping patterns and sighing melodies, all forged into an original concoction by the collective strength of the band.

Canniere is also part of the new young generation of jazz musicians who are taking advantage of modern technology, and is the first artist to make initial contact with Schmazz through Twitter! But ultimately it's the music that counts, and Jazz North East congratulates Schmazz on having followed through and booked such a brilliantly inventive yet accessible band.
