Cut to the Chase

Malcolm Strachan

Haggis Records
HRD009 | 2022-12-02  
Scottish trumpeter Malcolm Strachan (from UK funk kings The Haggis Horns), releases his second solo album "Point Of No Return" on January 27th, 2023. Like its predecessor "About Time" from 2021, it's also on Haggis Records and will be available as a digital download, CD, and a limited edition vinyl pressing. As a taster, a digital single from the album will be released on December 2nd, 2022.
"Cut To The Chase" is an uptempo, rhythm-heavy Latin jazz burner written by and featuring Malcolm on muted trumpet soloing alongside some punchy brass section playing that really drives the composition. Pianist George Cooper (The Jazz Defenders) adds a nice short solo after Malcolm's before percussionist Sam Bell heats up the bongos on the fadeout. One of the big dancefloor-friendly compositions on the album, "Cut To The Chase" definitely has a film soundtrack feel to it reminiscent of those 1960s spy thrillers where cars screech around dark streets in pursuit of each other. An excellent sampler for the new LP further showing Malcolm's talent as a composer and arranger alongside his skills as a soloist.
