It’s no secret that we’re big fans of Binker Golding, one of the UK’s foremost jazz forces, here at Twistedsoul. He’s been wowing us for years with his duo work with Moses Boyd and Elliot Galvin, as well as his solo recordings.
Next week the award-winning saxophonist and composer returns to East London label Byrd Out with a trio album called ‘Moon Day’ alongside two giants of the experimental scene Steve Noble and John Edwards.
‘Moon Day’, as the press releases explains, “plays with the post-truth zeitgeist, using the first major moon conspiracy of 1835 as a launchpad, throwing a sly wink at Buzz Aldrin as the trio impart on their own musical odyssey. “
To get you in the mood for the LP, the trio has put together an exclusive playlist full of diverse musical gems. The killer selection features tracks from Kendrick Lamar, The Kinks, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins and more.
If you like your playlist eclectic, then this is most definitely a selection for you.
