Binker & Moses (UK)
Binker Golding (tenor saxophone), Moses Boyd (drums)
This is one of the most dynamic and creative ensembles of the new generation of the modern British jazz scene. The saxophonist Binker Golding and the drummer Moses Boyd are musicians that are influenced by the richness of the 60s jazz, the hard bop and the free jazz and thus are creating their own esthetics in today’s plethora of different musical sounds. One can hear a saxophone that reminds us the historic sound of John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins and a drum set that goes beyond time limits, creating a true musical ritual. Having two magnificent albums (Dem Ones and Journey to the Mountain of Forever) and a third one (Children of the Ultra Blacks) on the production, Binker & Moses’ music is the best example of the creative status and high quality artistic level of the contemporary British jazz.
