Mrs Malcolm was commissioned in 2004 by University of St Andrews, for jazz orchestra, but has since been performed in several different versions throughout Britain and Europe. It begins with a breathless reel which is supported by a funky, insistent bass line. The texture opens out for soloists with backing riff, before the reel makes a triumphant return. Interestingly Mrs Malcolm is a colleague of the composer at the University St Andrew's, and Freuchie is a village close to Edinburgh, renowned for its cricket team if not its funkiness.
