Bio for Binker Golding's band:

Binker Golding is best known for playing saxophone in the jazz duo Binker & Moses. He’s also played & recorded with Zara McFarlane, Mr. Jukes, Moses Boyd’s Exodus, Sarah Tandy, Ashley Henry, Maisha & others. His current projects also include a free jazz duo partnership with pianist Elliot Galvin, with whom he has recently released the album “Ex Nihilo”. The Binker Golding Quartet however is his most recent & detailed musical venture.

In recent years Binker has picked up four awards with Binker & Moses; a MOBO award for best jazz album, two Jazz FM awards & a parliamentary jazz award. He’s generally regarded as a musician playing a key role in the innovations at the forefront of the new London jazz scene.

His new group, the Binker Golding Quartet, features compositions exclusively by the band leader with a greater emphasis on detail & harmonic sophistication in order to contrast with his earlier work. Expect jazz & fusion sounds from the 80’s & early 90’s mixed with contemporary London jazz, with influences ranging from Michael Brecker to Barry White whilst retaining a sound & feel unique to the band.

The new album by the quartet, “Abstractions of reality past & incredible feathers”, was recorded at Abbey Road studios, London & is set to be released in September 2019 on Gearbox records. It features Daniel Casimir on double bass, Joe Armon-Jones on piano & Sam Jones on drums, along-side Binker solely on tenor saxophone & composing all the tracks whilst also producing the album.
