"Maddison Pack knows his trade and the keys to the relationship of the instruments. A passionate and intense quartet that has a careful sound and works from the beginning on the language of emotion. The music makes their four components devilishly happy and they transfer their joy and vitality to the public. They are classic and modern, and they improvise with the same ease with which one breathes. They improvise, they play, they let themselves go, it is understood in the mathematics of the song… they strike, they stray, they return, they look at each other, insist, create a climate, shelter from the darkness and go mad in harmony. To some it seems that even their hands levitate.
'If you play a jazz melody and people don't move their feet, don't play it anymore', said Count Basie."

– Antón Castro, "Una visita al club de jazz - 626 Club", 2019­ –

 

"Jazz is a tremor of the soul and a seismic record of emotions. Now time calms down and becomes a lake.
Now the night is like a sanctuary of blackness.
Now the jungle is clouded with lianas and dark, gigantic birds, like a threat.
Now, someone runs through the streets wildly, chased by a shadow."

– Antón Castro, "Una visita al club de jazz - First Song", 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).

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".

Currently Maddison Pack combines his concert calendar with the preparation of the next album, in which Maddison Pack will have a greater impact from a "noir genre" jazz , and promises to be full of surprises.
