Binker & Moses - Journey to the Mountain of ForeverGearbox Records
Binker Golding and Moses Boyd are part of the collective of young musicians emerging on the vibrant London scene. As Binker and Moses they remind us just how engaging a drum and sax duo can be without the reliance of a chordal instrument. The duo explores a a variety of moods with Golding's adventurous solos servng as the lead voice. "Trees On Fire" finds Binker swinging with a flurry of energy that builds throughout while Boyd infectious rhythms equally holds his own. "The Valley Of The Ultra Blacks" find Golding on soprano and unleashing a flurry of spirted soloing while Boyd's mighty percussion asserts itself with high energy. With fifteen tracks of their own compositions and inspired by the great duets of the past. Binker and Moses come out swinging and produce one of the best records of the year. I'm already looking forward to their next release.
