Chris Maddock is a superb young saxophonist, arranger and composer based in London, currently making quite the name for himself on the UK jazz circuit. Having landed a spot on Birmingham Conservatoire's prestigious jazz course, he won the Mike Gibbs/BBC Big Band composition & arranging prize. After graduating, he was awarded the Yamaha Scholarship for outstanding jazz musicians and has been a sought-after sideman and bandleader ever since, performing countless shows at the UK’s most prestigious jazz venues. Tonight, Chris and his quartet (Liam Dunachie-organ; Tobie Carpenter-gtr and Ed Richardson-drums) will be promoting their brand new album, ‘The Hunt’, released on Ubuntu Music in October. This current project offers a contemporary, groovy take on the classic Hammond organ trio line-up, augmented with saxophone -sure to be a thrilling set from some masterful young musicians.
