It’s nine years since Bristol-based NICK MALCOLM played at SoundCellar as a guest musician with another ensemble, so we are delighted that he is now bringing his own band Out Front to our stage.

This gig will take place at The Grasshopper,
139 – 141 Bournemouth Rd, Poole BH14 9HT.

Please note: If parking in either of the car parks at The Grasshopper, you must register your vehicle on one of the dedicated terminals at the bar or in the function room.

Something of a UK super group, Out Front formed to play the music of two of jazz’s greatest ‘inside-outside’ masters; trumpeter Booker Little and pianist Andrew Hill. Drawing on a wealth of fabulous compositions and featuring a rich line-up of three horns, drums and bass, the band explores the vast possibilities of this music, from joyous straight ahead time playing, to the most open of improvisation.

In addition to releasing three albums under his own name, Nick is also a member of Rebecca Nash’s Redefining Element 78 project, Dee Byrne’s Outlines and George Cooper’s Jazz Defenders. As a sideman he was a founder member of Eliza Carthy’s ‘Wayward Daughter’ as well as of vocalist Emily Wright’s ‘Moonlight Saving Time’.

He has also performed works by contemporary classical composers Ianncu Dumitrescu and Richard Barrett, directed by the composers and broadcast on BBC Radio 3.
He has worked alongside major artists such as Lauren Kinsella, Corey Mwamba, Paul Dunmall, Mark Sanders, Iain Ballamy, Alex Merritt, Sara Colman, Jason Rebello, Tom Hewsom, George Crowley, Shabaka Hutchings and many others.

Nick has studied with world renowned trumpeters Ambrose Akinmusire, Chris Batchelor and Ralph Alessi and teaches jazz trumpet privately and at Wells Cathedral School.

“…a supremely gifted musician…a trumpet player for the 21st century…wow!” (Bebop Spoken Here)

The all-star line up that forms Out Front alongside Nick, includes Jason Yarde, Jake McMurchie, Olie Brice and Dave Smith. All of these fantastic musicians have graced the SoundCellar stage with different ensembles in the past, so we are really looking forward to hearing them perform together for us.

Nick Malcolm: Trumpet
Jason Yarde: Alto Saxophone
Jake McMurchie: Tenor Saxophone
Olie Brice: Double Bass
Dave Smith: Drums

Entry is £15 + booking fee in advance through the below link, or £18 on the door (cash or card).
