Malcolm’s performing career as a trombonist and vocalist spans from early jazz to contemporary jazz styles. He has worked with many artists including Digby Fairweather, Jack Parnell, John Dankworth, Henry Lowther, Andrea Vicari and Martin Speake. He has also worked with soul artists Martha Reeves and Ronnie Spector. More recently, he has recorded and toured extensively with Bryan Ferry. In 1996 he released his first quartet album Lyric Trombone. His present quintet Voxcity5, features a double vocal frontline. The group explores jazz singing through arrangements of standard tunes, through using voices in purely instrumental terms, and through vocal improvisation.
As a teacher, Malcolm has been involved in primary, secondary and adult sectors as well as with all the major music colleges. He also teaches for the University of Glamorgan and Wavendon Jazz Summer Schools, and runs workshops for the Associated Board.
