Binker and Moses headline the Saturday of this summer's Ealing Jazz Festival with the Camilla George Quartet and Ealing veteran Keith Waithe also among the line-up. The Sunday of this Walpole Park-located annual event has popular acid jazz Hammond organ outfit JTQ as main draw with the Ronnie Scott's Jazz Chamber Orchestra and pianist Sarah Tandy above among the strong acts in support.
Binker and Moses' Feeding the Machine (Gearbox) released in February found this incendiary sax and drum duo who do not have ''hold back'' in their vocabulary returning to their very best levels of creativity. The solution to full-on extravagance here was to change all production rationale by recording in the west country at top pop studio Real World and by adding a contribution from Partikel bassist Max Luthert with electronics and tape loops engineered by Hugh Padgham. Binker and Moses 2.0? Perhaps. Certainly Luthert and the handsome sound have helped add new life to the basic spark of intent and what a thrill it is and coming West London way this summer. Tickets
