Nick Malcolm

Nick Malcolm is a trumpeter and composer from Bristol. His main group, the Nick Malcolm Quartet, features pianist Alexander Hawkins, bassist Olie Brice and drummer Ric Yarborough. They play original compositions combining the rhythmic and harmonic complexities of contemporary jazz with the intensity and interaction of free improvisation. Their first album,‘Glimmers’, was released in May 2012 on FMR records. After a BBC Radio 3 'Jazz on 3' broadcast in February last year, the quartet released it's second album 'Beyond These Voices' to rave reviews in June 2014, with Richard Williams calling the group 'a highly evolved mechanism in which four voices create a sense of perfect integration'. Most recently they appeared at the EFG London Jazz Festival2014. He will be recording his third album with this band, 'Real Isn't Real', with the addition of a second quartet of female vocalists in September 2015.
