BINKER & MOSE MOSES JOUR­NEY TO THE MOUN­TAIN OF FOR­EVER GEAR­BOX, OUT NOW Drum’n’sax: London’s now sound for mind and body.

Q (UK) - - Q Review New Albums -

Thanks to Ken­drick La­mar and Bowie’s Black­star, jazz is back to spice pop’s soup. Rid­ing the vogue, London’s tenor sax-player Binker Golding and pow­er­house drum­mer Moses Boyd are an ex­cit­ing duo rooted in grime and hip-hop as well as jazz academia. Like those sax­o­phone colossi whose re­spec­tive roots lay in ca­lypso and road­house R&B, Binker opts to shake hips first, stroke beards sec­ond. Their prog-pack­aged sec­ond LP, split be­tween six duo tracks and nine aug­mented by stel­lar sax, trum­pet, harp, tabla and drums maestri, will in­deed unite you with the cos­mos but you can’t help mov­ing to the groove too.
