Preview: Binker & Moses @ GCT

(Preview by Russell/photo from GIJF).
This Thursday, 12 October, a coup will take place at Gosforth Civic Theatre (GCT). The hot ticket at this year’s Gateshead International Jazz Festival featured Binker Golding and Moses Boyd. An electric atmosphere inspired a committed performance from the Londoners. Six months on Binker and Moses are to play a gig in the Newcastle suburb of Gosforth!
GCT, once known as Gosforth Civic Hall, has an impressive jazz history…Jay McShann, Tal Farlow, Buddy Tate and Red Norvo just some of the legendary names to have graced the venue. Now under new ownership, the Regent Farm Road venue has recently established a ‘jazz club’ session. Presently a bi-monthly event, the inaugural gig featured the Paul Edis Sextet, master guitarist Mark Williams brought in his trio, and now Binker and Moses. Tenor saxophone (Binker Golding) and drums (Moses Boyd) can be an exhilarating combination – and this Gosforth gig will undoubtedly be an almighty, incendiary occasion. MOBO award winners, Jazz FM 2016 award winners (Breakthrough Act of the Year and Best UK Jazz Act) resulted in yet more media interest and now, in autumn 2017, they’re touring in Britain and across Europe having already played the Rochester Jazz Festival, New York.

John Coltrane and Rashied Ali, Sonny Rollins…the comparisons have been written about. Hear the duo live and make up your own mind. Binker and Moses' debut album Dem Ones recorded October 9th, 2014 is available on Gearbox Records www.gearboxrecords.com Binker and Moses' second album is out now. Journey to the Mountain of Forever features guest artists including Evan Parker, Byron Wallen and Sarathy Korwar.

Tyneside trio Archipelago – Faye MacCalman, reeds, John Pope, bass, Christian Alderson, drums – have bagged the support slot at GCT. A recently released debut album, Archipelago are on a roll. Doors at Gosforth Civic Theatre open at 7:30pm, admission £7.00.

About this blog - contact details.

Bebop Spoken Here -- Here, being the north-east of England -- centred in the blues heartland of Newcastle and reaching down to the Tees Delta and looking upwards to the Land of the Kilt.
Not a very original title, I know; not even an accurate one as my taste, whilst centred around the music of Bird and Diz, extends in many directions and I listen to everything from King Oliver to Chick Corea and beyond. Not forgetting the Great American Songbook the contents of which has provided the inspiration for much great jazz and quality popular singing for round about a century.
The idea of this blog is for you to share your thoughts and pass on your comments on discs, gigs, jazz - music in general. If you've been to a gig/concert or heard a CD that knocked you sideways please share your views with us. Tell us about your favourites, your memories, your dislikes.
