About the Artist(s)

Dante André-Kahan is a Vancouver-based guitarist and percussionist originally from the Saanich Peninsula on Vancouver Island, British Columbia. Having grown up playing in school wind and jazz ensembles, writing music, and studying musicology and classical guitar at the University of Victoria, Dante is now emerging from a creative hiatus into the Vancouver jazz scene. His eclectic approach to guitar playing and composition is informed by many techniques and musical traditions, but above all Dante strives to play every note with meaning, feel comfortable with space and silence in music, and bring people together in his community.

Dante first conceived of this tribute project to the music of John Abercrombie at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic, listening to Abercrombie’s albums while working in his grandparents’ garden. He sees the potential for this music to complement the pastoral landscapes of southwestern British Columbia and is excited to bring it to his part of the world.

For this Frankie’s After Dark performance Dante will be joined by Gabriel Dubreuil on violin, David Caballero on bass, and Dan Gaucher on drums.
