Malcolm McNab

I’ve played my 46th score for John Williams as first trumpet. Most recent was the last Indiana Jones movie. The first was The Man Who Loved Cat Dancing in 1973 with Burt Reynolds.

Hip-Bone Music is honored to showcase the legendary Malcolm McNab as our bone2pick artist of the month for May. A truly iconic and virtuosic brass instrumentalist, Malcolm has recorded on well over 2,000 motion picture soundtracks and has been a featured soloist on dozens of those. His two solo CDs have established him as one of the premier trumpet solo artists of all-time. We are grateful that Malcolm took the time to sit down with Michael and discuss a variety of topics including the profound influence his teacher Jimmy Stamp had on his playing, the building and sustaining of one of the most prolific recording careers ever, his relationship with the late great Frank Zappa, the love and admiration he has for his esteemed colleagues and the development of his Exquisite line of trumpets with B&S instruments. May is Malcolm McNab month. Enjoy!
