          "Maddison Pack was a block,
                           a continent of harmony, the plasticity of the music
that is evoked, neatness, feelings,
                           the wounds of the blood that remains."

– Antón Castro, "La canción de Maddy". Álbum "MADDISON PACK. 626 CLUB. LIVE AT AUDITORIO DE ZARAGOZA", 2019­ –

1.- About MADDISON PACK

Jazz quartet that was born in 2012, initially formed by clarinetist Javier Calvo Peralta and bassist Ernesto Calvo Soria. In 2016 pianist Noel Redolar joined. A year later, with the drummer Israel Tubilleja, the current formation of the quartet is defined, premiering at the 34th Edition of the "Zaragoza Jazz Festival" (2017), where Maddison Pack shares the stage with Kenny Barron, whoever was Dizzy Gillespie's pianist, and Italian pianist Dado Moroni.

In July 2019 they recorded the seven original songs of the quartet that are included in the album "626 Club". The writer and journalist Antón Castro collaborates in this work with the story titled "A visit to the Jazz Club", the photographer Javier Cruces (winner of three Goya awards), the painters Cesar Sánchez and George Ward, the cartoonist Javi Hernández, and the announcer and voice actor Ángel Redolar Cortés.

On February 10, 2020, the quartet presented "626 Club" with a concert in the auditorium of the emblematic modernist building of the Caja Rural de Aragón. More than 300 people (all invitations sold out) witnessed, after the words of the presenter and editor of Aragón TV Victoria Martínez, a multidisciplinar staging: music with reading of the story (announcer Ángel Redolar Cortés) "A visit to the club of Jazz" by Antón Castro, projection of images (photographer J. Cruces, painters C. Sánchez, G.Ward and cartoonist J. Hernández).

In December 2021, Maddison Pack presented a new album at the Zaragoza Auditorium entitled “MADDISON PACK. 626 CLUB. LIVE AT AUDITORIO DE ZARAGOZA”, a LIMITED EDITION of 110 COPIES of a DOUBLE VINYL + BOOK numbered and signed by the members of the band. This new album includes the live recording of the concert offered on January 30, 2021 in the Luis Galve Hall of the Zaragoza Auditorium. It is an edition for collectors and jazz lovers that is complemented by the collaborations of Antón Castro (writer, journalist), Javier Cruces (photographer 3 Goya photography awards), Georges Ward (Magic Realism painter), César Sánchez (ArtPop painter) , Javi Hernández (illustrator), Ricardo Lamenca (renowned and multi-award winning Aragonese painter) who made the cover and back cover of the album, Mayte Salvador (radio host and actress) with her story-presentation “The music box”, Marisa Royo with illustrations of Zaragoza and photographs of the Jaime Oriz concert.

Maddison Pack has always been especially sensitive in making jazz music present in environments where culture is generated, with a predilection for the university. To do this, the quartet offers a special didactic proposal: its project "Journey to the Heart of Jazz".

Maddison Pack currently combines its concert calendar with the preparation of the next album that will be titled "APRIL 1959". This new project will focus more on the flavor of "noir" of jazz, and promises to be full of surprises.
