Follow up “Coalescence” (also Whirlwind) released October 2013 with a band featuring Canniere, Riepler,Trebilcock, Scott and Ivo Neame (piano, accordion).
"An intelligent and stimulating amalgam of jazz and rock elements. For all their jazz sophistication Canniere's tunes often have a song like structure and flair for melody."
""Coalescence" is a worthy follow up to "Forward Space" and should help to strengthen Canniere's reputation as one of the brightest emerging talents on the UK jazz scene. "
"Guest contributor Sean Wilkie enjoys the music of trumpeter Andre Canniere's new sextet as they perform material from the new album "The Darkening Blue", inspired by the poetry of Rilke and Bukowski."
"An impressive statement from Canniere. The music sounds totally natural and organic, and is likely to appeal to adventurous rock and pop listeners as well as the regular jazz audience. "
