Ubuntu Music is delighted to announce the signing of composer/sax player Chris Maddock for the album release, The Hunt, in a burning quartet line-up.The project features a contemporary, groovy take on the classic Hammond organ trio line-up, augmented by saxophone. The music is inspired by the recent output of artists such as Larry Goldings and Joey DeFrancesco with similar line-ups, whilst also drawing on the influence of contemporary saxophone masters such as Jon Irabagon and Seamus Blake. The band includes some of London's finest young musicians - Liam Dunachie on organ, Tobie Carpenter on guitar, drummer Ed Richardson and a special guest appearance from Daniel Casimir on double bass.Chris is a saxophonist based in London, England.
