Jazzland Sessions : Malcolm Strachan Sextet

Due to the third English COVID-19 lockdown in January 2021 and probably extended into February/March, the 27th February Jazzland Sessions show with the Malcolm Strachan Sextet at Brudenell Social Club (Community Room) in Leeds is now rescheduled to Saturday 8th May 2021. All existing table bookings made for previous dates are valid for the new show.

One of Leeds's favourite musicians, trumpeter Malcolm Strachan from internationally acclaimed funk band The Haggis Horns, gives the funk a rest while he returns to his first musical love, jazz music. 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. A series of live shows were being planned to promote the album when COVID-19 shut down all live music venues so this band on the album have never played the songs live in concert. Until now. 

Here's a quick biography about the artist. 
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. 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..
Malcolm Strachan Sextet for this show are : Malcolm - trumpet/flugelhorn, Athol Ransome - tenor sax/flute, Danny Barley - trombone, George Cooper - piano/keys,  Courtny Thomas - double bass, Erroll Rollins - drums. 

Athol, George and Erroll are all fellow Haggis Horns band members, Courtny is a longtime musician friend from Malcolm's Leeds College Of Music days and Danny is one of Leeds's busiest and best jazz trombonists. 
Jazz is back for Malcolm and this concert is a special one for him as it's the first live show ever where he presents his debut album material. The band will play 2 sets. Not to be missed if you love contemporary or classic jazz.
Before and between sets, Leeds jazz DJ legend Gip Dammone (DIG Family) will be playing some classic and new jazz tracks, strictly vinyl of course.
This concert will fully comply with existing government COVID-19 safety regulations. You can check these here at the venue's website.
