freejazzy These guys are something else. Optimistic vibes and a true "yes we can" demonstration. Power, confidence, faith, trust, enthusiasm,...... and skills.
PS: Their duets convinced me though I am actually a trio fan. Favorite track: Fete by the River.

Marrrk Saw them play at inJazz in Rotterdam back in 2016. What an impression they made. Power, joy, freedom, happiness. Beautiful. Favorite track: The Shaman's Chant.

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!

英国ジャズ・シーン新世代の旗手としての立場をすっかり確立させた、サックス奏者ビンカー・ゴールディングとドラマーのモーゼス・ボイド。

2015年のデビュー・アルバムの『デム・ワンズ』が全くのふたりだけによる録音だったのに対し、セカンド・アルバムである今作は彼ら以外のさまざまなゲスト・ミュージシャンを交えた、より大掛かりな演奏を繰り広げている点が特徴だ。参加ミュージシャンはユナイテッド・ヴァイブレーションズのメンバーで、カマール・ウィリアムスとユセフ・カマールを結成して『ブラック・ フォーカス』(2016年)を出し、テンダーロニアスのルビー・ラシュトンなどでも演奏してきたドラマーのユセフ・デイズ。2020年にはトム・ミッシュとのコラボ・アルバム『ワット・ カインダ・ミュージック』が話題を呼んだ。そして、インド系の血筋のドラマーおよびパーカッション奏者として知られるサラティー・コールワールがタブラ演奏で参加している。

レコーディングは2016年7月21日、22日にロンドンのゼリグ・スタジオで行なわれた。ここは『デム・ワンズ』を録音した場所でもあり、エンジニアのリカルド・デミアンなどスタッフはそのときと同じ面々が引き継いでいる。『ジャーニー・トゥ・ザ・マウンテン・オブ・フォー エヴァー』というアルバム・タイトルは、神話や神々、モンスターなどが存在するファンタジーの世界から来ている。物語は『ザ・レルム・オブ・ナウ』と『ザ・レルムズ・オブ・ジ・インフィニット』というふたつのパートから成り、その中には祈祷師の叫びがあり、ベスブヌという神の声があり、大暗黒の谷や火の森があり、創世記の輪廻転生などがある。『ザ・レルム・ オブ・ナウ』のパートはビンカーとモーゼスのふたりのみの演奏で、第2部の『ザ・レルムズ・ オブ・ジ・インフィニット』に入ってゲスト・ミュージシャンが参加する構成となっている。トータルで80分を超える壮大で深遠な音楽絵巻で、トリ・ハンズリーのハープやサラティー・コールワールのタブラが、古代の神話を呼び覚ますような霊的な雰囲気づくりに貢献している。
