Cool Jazz Series 4 2005
COOL JAZZ - Andre Woodvine

Andre Woodvine In his own words Woodvine describes his music as "A creative expedition that affects its listeners on both the emotional and intellectual levels." Andre's early experience with improvisation began in a junior high school band; "We would try to vary the melody without our teacher noticing." says Andre. Woodvine's interest in jazz blossomed when he attended Berklee College of Music.

Over the past 17 years, Andre's music has taken him to stages across the Caribbean, North America and Europe where audiences have enjoyed his passionate tone, exciting improvisations and unique compositions. In 1992 Andre won the Caribbean Song Competition with his piece 'Hold You In A Song'. He has produced two CDs of original Caribbean Jazz, Voyager in 1995 and Citronella in 1998.


Other highlights of Andre's career include a special one-hour performance entitled 'Jazz in the sun' broadcast frequently on BET the cable jazz channel. In 2001 Andre performed an original composition to an audience of millions across Canada on the popular Canadian television's Mike Bullard show. Woodvine's musical interests have extended to the development of Caribbean Jazz through education. In 1998 Andre assisted in the formation of the first Associate Degree of Music programme at the Barbados Community College, where he now teaches part-time.
