Album review: Binker and Moses - Escape the Flames

Binker Golding (tenor sax); Moses Boyd (drums)
 

Escape the Flames enjoyed a limited vinyl release at the tail end of last year. Having effectively ended their regular duo partnership to concentrate on solo projects, Binker Golding and Moses Boyd are to release a digital download alternative format on Gearbox Records. The new album is a recording of the launch gig for 2017's Journey to the Mountain of Forever. The evening was a great success with the material too good to be put on the shelf and forgotten about, which has happened all-too-often in jazz history only for a recording to be 'rediscovered' decades later. It is, therefore, to Gearbox's credit that it will shortly be available as a mid-winter addition to the label's ever-growing catalogue. 

Golding's uncompromising yet inventive tenor saxophone playing swirls around Boyd's driving, constantly shifting drum patterns. Parallels in Golding's playing with the sustained intensity of John Coltrane's approach and Sonny Rollins' lyricism are clearly evident as he takes no prisoners with a fearless display. Boyd matches his musical partner's bold statements, with fiery bursts of his own making this January 29 digital download release a compelling listen. See: www.gearboxrecords.com
