Binker + Moses at JazzFM Awards 2016

Whoop-whoop! WOWWWWEEEE! We had a lot of fun at the JazzFM Awards held at the Bloomsbury Ballroom in London on Tuesday night, where several Tomorrow’s Warriors alumni were up for awards.

Last year, two of our alumni – the fantastically dynamic duo of saxophonist, Binker (Golding) & drummer, Moses (Boyd) – blew everyone away when they bagged the MOBO Award for Best Jazz Act following the release of their acclaimed album,  Dem Ones. At the JazzFM Awards, however, it wasn’t Dem Ones but ‘Dem Twos’ we were celebrating as these talented young artists scored a double whammy, picking awards for both the Breakthrough Act Of The Year AND the UK Jazz Act Of The Year! How brilliant is that?!

Very well done guys, and congrats also to their label, vinyl specialists Gearbox Records .

Tomorrow’s Warriors directors, Janine Irons and Gary Crosby shared a quietly proud moment looking around the Ballroom, first witnessing the sheer number of Warriors in the space, and then taking stock of the incredible contribution the TW alumni have made, and continue to make to the UK jazz scene. #movingmoment
