“a heady mixture, and it really works…the work of a talented artist who is paying homage to his inspirations, and laying down a solid foundation from which to build his own thing.

Malcolm Hunter & The Makeshift Dream Orchestras “Nostalgia in My Square Head” is a jazz and funk-lovers delight with an avant-garde twist. Hunters lyrical genius is showcased against a background of fluid, sensual, reflective jazz-inspired tracks which evoke an enormous variety of memories, emotions, and recollections.
