Frenchman Alexandre Madeline started playing saxophone at the age of 14 and subsequently studied classical saxophone at the Caen Conservatory. At 20, he began practicing jazz and playing in different big bands. He later opened for Maceo Parker with his band, played with the NATO Jazz Orchestra, and recorded for jazz, funk, and pop music projects. He came to study at Berklee College of Music in January of 2013 and has been privileged to study with musicians such as Hal Crook, George Garzone, and Greg Hopkins. Thanks to his music, Madeline has traveled to Azerbaijan, playing with the Emil Afrasiyab Group for the Baku International jazz Festival in 2013. The group has also performed at the Kennedy Center; at Carnegie Hall; at the Kursaal in Bern, Switzerland; and at the Saint Germain des Près Jazz Festival in Paris.
Madeline has created a new jazz quartet with some other talented Berklee students (Simon Moullier on vibes, Giuseppe Campisi on bass, and Juan Ale Saenz on drums ). Their cohesion allows them to play music without limits, and they are always full of surprises.
