Binker Golding / John Edwards / Steve Noble
A product of the Tomorrow’s Warriors organisation London born saxophonist Binker Golding is one of the leading figures on the capital’s contemporary jazz scene, part of the young crop of musicians behind the latest jazz ‘revival’ that has seen the music reaching out to appeal to a younger, more diverse demographic.
For this appearance in Newcastle, Golding is joined by John Edwards and Steve Noble, two heavyweight veterans of the London improvisational jazz scene, and regular performers at the infamous Cafe OTO.
As a trio, they recently released the debut album ‘Mood Day’, an album plays with the post truth zeitgeist, using the first major moon conspiracy of 1835 as a launch pad.
“Recorded during a gap between the various lockdowns of 2020, you can sense the release from the musicians as they combine after enforced isolation with a telepathic sense of where to push each other: Noble interjecting both chaos and order from the drums; Edwards the rocket fuel propelling the unit on; and Golding soaring and cutting through on sax. You will not find a better showcase of these musicians’ phenomenal abilities. This is free jazz at its most compelling and most engaging. ‘Moon Day’ is undoubtedly a future jazz classic”
