Nick MalcolmNick Malcolm: trumpet
Olie Brice: double bass
Simon Roth: drums


Three highly individual improvisers who between them have worked with Evan Parker, Paul Dunmall, Ingrid Laubrock and Louis Moholo-Moholo, among many others. The group are steeped in jazz, yet they are clearly keen to swerve conventional blues, bop and free jazz cliches, preferring instead to take the least expected route when improvising. This approach is personified in Nick Malcolm’s trumpet playing which explores long rhythmic cycles, odd mid-valve timbres, silences and carefully placed notes, and the result is a very thoughtful kind of instant composition.
