Among New York musicians who literally make their reputations underground, Dave Binney is something of a central figure. His deceptively simple-sounding songs, and the passionate alto saxophone blowing he brings to them, saw bright daylight when he brought an A-list band, including drummer Brian Blade, to the CareFusion Newport Folk Festival in Newport, R.I.
