“About Time” Malcolm Strachan’s new sextet featuring Nico Widdowson piano, Courtny Tomas double bass, Erroll Rollins drums, Atholl Ransome tenor saxophone, Danny Barley trombone, and Malcolm himself on trumpet.

Leeds based Scottish trumpeter Malcolm Strachan is a founder member of top UK funk/jazz-funk band, The Haggis Horns, as well as being one of the busiest session musicians in the UK today. 

In a professional career spanning 20 years, he’s recorded with the likes of Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jamiroquai, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Jesse Glynne, The Craig Charles Fantasy Funk Band, Black Honey, The New Mastersounds and Blue Note saxophone legend Lou Donaldson. Now he’s finally releasing his first solo album, aptly titled “About Time”, on Haggis Records and he’s going back to his original roots…Jazz.

 “About Time”  is a collection of original compositions, all written and arranged by Malcolm, and all firmly rooted in the classic acoustic modern jazz style typified by the great 60’s and 70’s recordings on the legendary Blue Note Records label. A nice variation of themes and tempos feature throughout the album. From full-on latin vibes to beautiful ballads, soul jazz grooves to cinematic soundtrack flavours, all woven together by a great group of experienced musicians.

£16/14 Doors 7.15pm music 7.30-10pm.
