The Chris Maddock Quartet 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 and drummer Ed Richardson. This performance will follow the release of their debut album The Hunt (15th October 2021).
