Binker Golding: Dream Like A Dogwood Wild Boy

Read "Dream Like A Dogwood Wild Boy" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


Acknowledged as one of the top UK saxophonists since the 2010s, Binker Golding established himself as half of the duo Binker and Moses with drummer Moses Boyd. On the same Gearbox Records label, Golding issued his first solo album Abstractions of Reality Past & Incredible Feathers in 2019. A departure from the uninhibited free improvisation and ...

I Am: Beyond

Read "Beyond" reviewed by Chris May


Tenor saxophone and drums duos were a thing at least as early as the 1950s, but John Coltrane and Elvin Jones elevated the format a decade later. Among their most exalted forays was the 27:04 title track of Coltrane's One Down, One Up: Live At The Half Note (Impulse, 2005), recorded in 1965. In case you ...

Binker & Moses: Feeding The Machine

Read "Feeding The Machine" reviewed by Chris May


Many of us who are fully paid-up intravenous-feed junkies for Binker and Moses would be happy if the semi-free London duo stuck to their well-honed paradigm of acoustic visceralism until The Time Of The Last Persecution. Tenor saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd, however, have been restless for a while, wanting to reconfigure their music. ...

Ill Considered: Liminal Space

Read "Liminal Space" reviewed by Chris May


London's semi-free trio Ill Considered makes music in much the same way as does tenor saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd's duo, Binker and Moses--using simple rhythmelodic motifs as jumping off points for otherwise unstructured improvisation, much of it blazingly intense. Originally a quartet, Ill Considered now comprises founder members tenor saxophonist and bass clarinetist ...

Run Logan Run: For A Brief Moment We Could Smell The Flowers

Read "For A Brief Moment We Could Smell The Flowers" reviewed by Chris May


Tenor saxophone and drums albums have been at the heart of London's alternative jazz scene since its first stirrings around 2015. That year, saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd, then members of singer Zara McFarlane's backing band, started tossing riffs and beats back and forth to each other during pre-gig soundchecks. In ...

Instrumental Duos

Read "Instrumental Duos" reviewed by Karl Ackermann


The early days of jazz were not always harmonious. Converted dance orchestras often sounded like unbalanced acoustic junkyards; a single violin, cornet, trombone, clarinet, tuba, drums, banjo, and piano, all fighting for attention. The piano was meant to be the glue holding the shrill and boisterous elements together. In 1921 a prodigy pianist named Zez Confrey ...

Chris May’s Best Releases Of 2020

Read "Chris May’s Best Releases Of 2020" reviewed by Chris May


Not the best year for live gigs in London, but Dele Sosimi's Afrobeat Orchestra just made it under the wire, lighting up the Jazz Cafe in late January. Rather like Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers, Sosimi's band has form as an incubator of young talent. A recent star in the making was trumpeter Ife Ogunjobi, who has ...
