In just two years, fiery saxophone-drums duo Binker & Moses have won a loyal following for their intense, hypnotic live show, which included a breakthrough UK tour with American trio The Bad Plus.
Their debut album ‘Dem Ones’ was recorded live in Mark Ronson’s Zelig Studio for Gearbox Records and won the coveted MOBO award for Best Jazz Act, also seeing them named as both Breakthrough Act & Jazz Act of The Year at the 2016 Jazz FM Awards. The second LP, 2017’s ‘Journey to the Mountain of Forever’ was released in Spring 2017. Like its predecessor, the new album was recorded completely live, direct to a 1960’s Studer C37 1/4” tape machine at the Gearbox Records studio – and the sessions resulted in more than 5 hours of music.
‘Journey to the Mountain of Forever’ is a story album. Travel with Binker & Moses 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 and characters whilst immersing yourself in their strange rituals, potions, music & a world which has no end. But, beware of the Jahvmonishi plant…
