Dem Ones by Binker and Moses.
This album was mentioned in a recent @thewiremagazine article about Shabaka Hutchings as a crucial disk of “New British Jazz”. Sax and drum duos of varying styles, from a Rollins-esque St Thomas-ey romp, to a couple ballads, and finishing with a bit of free squonk.
More and more I feel like Horace Silver is the patron saint of the young Jazz cats in the US and abroad. While still adhering to most Jazz traditions, Binker and Moses’ swinging soul inflected Jazz owes more to Hard Bop than anything else.
