Binker and Moses are tenor saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd – two of the most exciting young jazz musicians on the thriving London jazz scene. Originally meeting through double bassist/educator Gary Crosby’s ‘Tomorrow’s Warriors’ jazz development programme, they have played together in various large and small format groups including recording and touring extensively as members of Zara McFarlane’s band.
Their debut album ‘Dem Ones’ has its roots in experiments between soundchecks and gigs while on the road with McFarlane. These initial ideas and jams have become templates for improvisation and with their echoes of late period Coltrane and Charles Lloyd, are as listenable and memorable as they are full of invention, passion and surprise. This album has certainly set them in place to be one of the most exciting new pairings of the year and has led to them being aptly rewarded with ‘Best Jazz Act’ at the MOBO Awards in October of 2015.
