31st October 2016: “The musicianship is beyond reproach.” Latest reviews for Andre Canniere and ‘The Darkening Blue’. Tour continues next week

Trumpeter and composer Andre Canniere continues The Darkening Blue tour next week with an appearance at The Ram Jam Club in Kingston.

Inspired by poems of Rainer Maria Rilke and Charles Bukowski The Darkening Blue imaginatively combines the haunting and mystical elements of Rilke with the grit and boldness of Bukowski into a uniquely cohesive programme of music and features Tori Freestone – sax, Ivo Neame – piano, Michael Janisch – double and electric bass, Ted Poor – drums and guest vocalist Brigitte Beraha.

 

Here are the highlights from the latest reviews:

“A lovely sound, with melodic lines flowing easily off into improvisations.”
The Jazz Breakfast (full review)

“The musicianship is beyond reproach.”
Bebop spoken here (full review)
