Binker & Moses: Escape the Flames LP
Binker and Moses are tenor saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd – two of the most exciting young jazz musicians on the thriving London jazz scene. Originally meeting through double bassist/educator Gary Crosby's Tomorrow's Warriors jazz development program, they have played together in various large and small format groups including recording and touring extensively as members of Zara McFarlane's band. As a label that specializes in archive releases, Gearbox Records gets a special buzz out of unearthing musical gems and putting them out in their resplendent vinyl glory. And this is no exception! They're over the moon to present a previously-unreleased live performance of Binker and Moses on double LP, titled Escape The Flames. Those who know the duo will appreciate that every Binker and Moses performance is distinct in itself, characterized by mutual spontaneity and the tireless interrogation of the infinite. This 6-track recording, taken from their Journey to the Mountain of Forever album launch at Total Refreshment Centre back in 2017, is a whole new interpretation of the studio album. Engineered and mixed by Gareth Finnegan. Mastered and cut by Darrel Sheinman at Gearbox Records. Cover illustration by Binker Golding.
