Binker Golding Quintet
“Is Binker Golding the new Sonny Rollins? The new Coltrane? Or both?” – MOJO
Binker Golding truly is the saxophonist of the moment. A key proponent of the London jazz scene, his band explores the roots of the music being celebrated so widely at present, whilst also creating something entirely new.
Stylistically, this group constitutes a departure from his more rhythm and riff-heavy collaboration with Moses Boyd as well as his avant-garde project with Elliott Galvin. A greater emphasis on harmonic and melodic development harks back to the more through-composed jazz fusion of the 80s and 90s.
Described by taste-maker Gilles Peterson as “exceptional”, expect a contemporary twist from 4 young heavyweights of the London jazz scene.
“Like those saxophone colossi whose respective roots lay in calypso and roadhouse R&B, Binker opts to shake hips first, stroke beards second.” – Q
“Exceptional” – Gilles Peterson
“… A furiously inventive conversation between Sonny Rollins and broken beat.” – Clash Magazine
“Binker’s keening melodic lines are as intricate and impressionistic as the title.” – The Guardian
