Read "Binker & Moses At London's Jazz Cafe" reviewed by Chris May

Binker & Moses
Jazz Cafe
London
September 12, 2018

Binker & Moses began life around five years ago, when saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd started playing ferocious, free-association duets during pre-performance sound checks as members of Zara McFarlane's band. Both musicians still tour and record with ...

Binker and Moses: Alive In The East?

Read "Alive In The East?" reviewed by Chris May

Something wonderful is happening in London in summer 2018. A disruptive musical movement, led by an inter-connected community of young musicians, is taking jazz in vibrant new directions and finding enthusiastic new audiences. Hybridisation is the name of game, which reflects London's cultural diversity by absorbing locally created styles such as grime and broken beat within ...

Binker & Moses: Journey To The Mountain Of Forever

Read "Journey To The Mountain Of Forever" reviewed by Bruce Lindsay

A double album with a title--Journey To The Mountain Of Forever--straight from the annals of Prog Rock (maybe with a short diversion via the Coltranes' spiritual jazz). A cover design that's a close relation to Led Zeppelin's Houses Of The Holy--a link made more explicit by an inner sleeve illustration that features a character in a ...

Jasmine Power: Stories and Rhymes EP

Read "Jasmine Power: Stories and Rhymes EP" reviewed by Phil Barnes

There's something wonderful about watching a major talent emerge blinking into the harsh spotlight of the public gaze for the first time. Of course, some find the experience so traumatic that they are never heard of again, others are unlucky finding themselves in the clutches of the unprincipled sharks that inhabit the arts every bit as ...

If Club Inégales didn't exist, it would be necessary to invent it. What price a venue in the heart of jny: London with a policy as open-minded and eclectic as this? Club Inégales welcomes jazzers and free improvisers, baroque musicians and folk singers, poets and comedians, Japanese and Bengali percussionists and even the occasional passing shaman. ...

Emily Saunders: Outsiders Insiders

Read "Emily Saunders: Outsiders Insiders" reviewed by Phil Barnes

Four years on from her debut Cotton Skies London's Emily Saunders has taken near complete control on this wonderful follow up and artistic leap forward. While she also produced her debut, this time Saunders wrote and arranged all nine tracks, not needing to augment them with covers from the likes of Airto Moreira as she did ...

Vibraphonist/composer Mulatu Astatke is the creator of Ethio-jazz and reputedly the first African musician to study at Berklee. Prior to that he had studied music in Wales and London. Whilst in America in the 1960s and early 1970s Astatke absorbed diverse influences and a dense rhythmic mosaic is a key component of this pulsating recording. Afro-Latin, ...
