Binker and Moses, led by tenor saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd, can best be described as playing semi-free spiritual jazz. Alive In The East? is the group's third album, following Dem Ones (Gearbox, 2015) and Journey To The Mountain Of Forever (Gearbox, 2017).
Dem Ones is a special album. Not only does it showcase the deftness of their playing but it also shows that in 2015 a stripped back and bare-boned jazz album can be the most exciting thing ever. In a world where effects and over-production rule supreme, it’s refreshing to hear two instruments playing together and creating, as Sun Ra used to say, A joyful noise. But Golding puts it better himself: I’d say we started this ensemble for liberation. In my mind it’s a mild rebellion against jazz which is over composed with perhaps one or two too many instruments. What Binker and Moses have effectively done it show what jazz can be in 2015. Over recent years jazz has become bloated and safe; safe in the knowledge that it doesn’t really need to exert itself much to get it’s point across. Dem Ones looks set to shake this up.
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, hip-hop and electronica as well as jazz. Like their US counterparts, they’re connecting with a new, younger audience.

Their third album in as many years, Binker Golding and Moses Boyd are trailblazers in arguably the most exciting jazz explosion London has ever witnessed. 10 new tracks featuring a giant wealth of talent alongside Binker and Moses themselves, (including UK free jazz legend Evan Parker and one half of Yussef Kamaal), this album captures a moments 45 minutes when spontaneity and composition combine to magical effect. It's a companion piece to 'Journey' but with a different energy - as North London is to South London, as West is to East
