Malcolm, Nick Quartet

Malcolm, Nick Quartet: Glimmers (FMR)
Label: FMR    
Released in: Great Britain    

"Led by trumpeter Nik Malcom this cd is a combination of free improv and composed pieces Talking about the band Nik said 'although the band is only about a year and 4 months old, I've been playing with them all for quite a few years now. They're close friends and we've done a fair bit of learning and developing together and they're just an amazing bunch of musicians. I think what's so special about them is that they're very distinctive musical personalities rather than just being great musicians. That's something that is really important to me – I really want the way those personalities interact with each other through improvising to come out in the music.'"-FMR
