Malcolm Strachan’s ‘About Time’

“A thing of beauty”Snowboy

A new sextet led by Leeds based Scottish trumpeter Malcolm Strachan: founding 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.

He’s finally released his first solo album, aptly titled “About Time”, on Haggis Records and he’s going back to his original jazz roots.

In spring 2020, after 21 years as a professional musician, Malcolm finally released his debut solo album “About Time” on Haggis Records and the critical and sales response was huge. Radio plays and reviews from across the UK and internationally, including “Album Of The Week” on Jazz FM.
In a professional career spanning 20 plus years, he’s recorded and toured with the likes of Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse, Corinne Bailey Rae, Jamiroquai, Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, Jess Glynne, The Craig Charles Fantasy Funk Band, Black Honey, The New Mastersounds and Blue Note Records jazz saxophone legend Lou Donaldson. He finally released his first solo album, aptly titled “About Time”, on Haggis Records in March 2020 and went back to his original musical roots…..jazz.

The album is a collection of original compositions, all written and arranged by Malcolm, which are firmly rooted in the classic acoustic modern jazz style typified by the great 60s and 70s recordings on the legendary Blue Note Records label. From full-on modal jazz to Latin vibes, beautiful ballads and soul jazz grooves to cinematic soundtrack flavours, all woven together perfectly by a great group of experienced musicians who have been working with Malcolm for decades in The Haggis Horns and other bands and line-ups
