Nader What a jam! From start to finish, this album will make your soul smile as you groove along to the brilliant synergy between drums and sax. What Binker and Moses have created is a jazz rollercoaster ride which you wouldn't want to leave. Favorite track: Intoxication from the Jahvmonishi Leaves.

Michael Mueller An epic album of two halves. In the first, Binker and Moses create a stunningly fulsome fusion of saxophone and drums, with interplay and flights of fancy of the highest order.

The second half, performed with a more expansive ensemble contains pieces of a more free-jazz nature, less structured, but searing in their intensity and virtuosity.

The album cover reminds me of a prog/psych album. That's apt, because this album is a giant leap forward for 21st century jazz.

Favorite track: Intoxication from the Jahvmonishi Leaves.

Voted #1 Urban Album of 2017 by MOJO

"Is Binker Golding the new Sonny Rollins? The new Coltrane? Or both? Like those R&B-rooted sax colossi, Golding and powerhouse drummer Moses Boyd shake ass first, stroke beards second" - MOJO

"...A rollicking trip through a landscape rich in the sounds of now — funk, grime, hip hop — and those of a multidimensional future" - EVENING STANDARD

When Binker Golding and Moses Boyd’s debut album Dem Ones was released in Summer of 2015 it kickstarted a sensational year for the young saxophone and drums duo, who won a string of awards including 2015 MOBO Awards: Best Jazz Act, Jazz FM Awards 2016: UK Jazz Act of the Year and Breakthrough Act of the Year and the 2106 Parliamentary Jazz Awards: Jazz Newcomer of the Year.

Their new record Journey to the Mountain of Forever is a story album on two discs: the first features the duo on their own while for the second they are joined by saxophonist Evan Parker, trumpeter Byron Wallen, harpist Tori Handsley tabla player Sarathy Korwar and drummer Yussef Dayes. The sessions took place on 21-22 July 2016, and were recorded completely live from Mark Ronson’s Zelig studio direct to a 1960’s Studer C37 1/4” tape machine at Gearbox’s studio - no edits, drop-ins or mixing down.

So, travel with us from the “realm of the now” to “the realm of the infinite” meeting along the way Shamans, the great Besbunu, the Ultra Blacks & various other tribes, monsters & characters whilst immersing yourself in their strange rituals, potions, music & a world which has no end. But, beware of the Jahvmonishi plant!

Binker and Moses London, UK

Binker Golding and Moses Boyd are a semi-free jazz saxophone and drums duo. They are among the frontrunners of a loose yet interconnected group of London-based jazz musicians that are influenced by the music that surrounds them, including grime, hiphop and electronica as well as jazz. Like their US counterparts, they’re connecting with a new, younger audience. ... more
