Unindicted Secret Society co-conspirator #3, André Canniere, brings the band from his recently released debut recording, As Of Yet, to the Knit tonight. These partners-in-crime include saxophonist Josh Rutner (of The Respect Sextet), guitarist Ryan Ferreira, bassist Ike Sturm, and drummer Ted Poor (who you surely know from his recent recordings with Cuong Vu and Ben Monder). They will be joined by guest trombonist James Hirschfield (also of the Respect Sextet, and a veteran of the very sexy new music band Alarm Will Sound).
André has also generously agreed to allow me to offer to you, gentle reader, an [ahem] exclusive free download from As Of Yet. "Accelerated Decrepitude" opens with some skittishly funky rhythm section work leading into an attractive Zorn-ish head, and features outstanding blowing from both André and Josh. Check it out:
There's more to be had at André's MySpace page.
André Canniere Group - tonight at the Knitting Factory (Old Office) 9 PM - 10:30 PM. $8 cover.
