NEWS: Binker Golding and Moses Boyd win jazz MOBO Award for Dem Ones

At tonight’s MOBO Awards the award for jazz went to saxophonist Binker Golding and drummer Moses Boyd.

The other nominees were Julia Biel, Courtney Pine, David Lyttle and Polar Bear.

Our previous coverage of Binker and Moses includes an LP review by Andrew Cartmel of Dem Ones (Gearbox), which they made as a duo and which has led to this award.

Steve Plumb also interviewed Moses for us in 2014.

And back in 2010, we asked the late and much-missed Abram Wilson to write a preview of a Spike Lee / Mo’Better Blues show, in  which he had both Binker and Moses as trusted sidemen in his band.

Congratulations to both, and to the team at vinyl specialist Gearbox Records, for whom this is a significant validation of their niche/ centre of excellence approach.
