In a varied career, he combines jazz and classical performances at the highest level with extensive film, television and recording work. Malcolm toured the world with Cleo Laine and John Dankworth from 1991 to 2001, and played with pianist Stan Tracey for six years. He is currently a member of Acker Bilk's Paramount Jazz Band, and he has worked with Lee Konitz, George Shearing, Art Farmer, George Benson, Scott Hamilton, Mose Allison, Johnny Griffin, Mel Tormé, Clark Terry, Kenny Wheeler, Sting, Diana Ross, The Divine Comedy, James Galway, John Rutter, Lesley Garrett and John Williams.

An experienced record producer, teacher and music writer, Malcolm has received nominations at the British Jazz Awards every year since 1990. Malcolm formed his innovative trio Acoustic Triangle in 2000. The trio, which specialises in jazz with European classical influences, is now in great demand for festivals and concerts around the world. Acoustic Triangle's debut CD Interactions www.audio-b.com was described in BBC Music Magazine thus: "Acoustic Triangle is a trio of world-class virtuosi, and this exquisitely passionate and inspired album is something of a masterpiece."

Critic Geoffrey Smith described Malcolm's solos at a recent Wigmore Hall concert as "...immaculately in tune and superbly executed", and he was described in The Stage as "a warm and exciting virtuoso".
