“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.
