Malcolm meets Scarpa

January 23, 2024

Malcolm Scarpa‘s legacy continues with the release of this compilation after his death in 2022. It is a careful selection of songs chosen by his sister Rosa from the vast amount of unreleased material that Malcolm once recorded on cassette at home. A small part of the musical heritage of the musician from Madrid for the delight and enjoyment of his fans. A point and follow-up in the career of a pioneer and unrepeatable artist who, after more than twenty recordings, continues to surprise us with his freshness and compositional genius. Chameleonic and prolific like few others, his work is sprinkled with an inexhaustible stream of influences, styles, and trends. A reference and one of the pioneers along Ñaco Goñi in the blues scene, through swing, country, jazz, classical or cabaret to his unforgettable incursions into pop or psychedelia, influenced by his adored Ray Davies and Brian Wilson.

Malcolm meets Scarpa is  released on vinyl, with a meticulous graphic design and a careful selection of songs that detail much of the author’s multiple stages.

Malcolm meets Scarpa is not just a work for the initiated, on the contrary, besides offering the opportunity to discover the figure of this composer, singer, and guitarist from Madrid to all those who do not know him, it proposes to get close to music with capital letters, to the artist to himself and to the honesty of his art, free, without barriers. An album that perpetuates the legacy of a unique and unrepeatable artist.

Perhaps the best description of a musician as important as the great Malcolm Scarpa is the most unclassifiable. An artist who embodies a time that no longer exists, a time when almost anything was possible. Pioneer of unpredictable sounds, genre painter, introverted and ironic. Far from all fashions and fashions, with the principle of staying true to oneself, to one’s music, to one’s art and, most importantly, to one’s worldview.
