Dit concert kadert in het Autumn Falls Festival.

Ever since AB celebrated the 100th anniversary of the very first jazz album with a tsunami of successful jazz concerts (under the banner JAZZ 100) in 2017, our love of the genre has only increased. We have already presented a number of unique jazz scene reports with the focus on London (from Shabaka Hutchings via Kamaal Williams to Nubya Garcia), Manchester (from GoGo Penguin to Matthew Halsall), Chicago (from Makaya McCraven to Ben LaMar Gay) and, of course, Belgium (from BeraadGeslagen via Steiger to Glass Museum).

‘The Rebirth of Jazz’ is a fact. Jazz continues to reinvent itself, the stream of interesting releases is now unstoppable, and the genre attracts a notably young audience. All good reasons to commit to jazz this fall, with concerts by Theon Cross, Angel Bat Dawid, Oscar Jerome, Ezra Collective, TaxiWars, Joe-Armon Jones, Ill Considered, Sarathy Korwar and Nérija (with members of KOKOROKO, SEED Ensemble, …).

TaxiWars is the tangible result of (dEUS frontman) Tom Barman’s long-time dream to do ‘something’ with jazz. New York resident and saxophonist Robin Verheyen was the ideal partner in crime. For a couple of albums now, the results sound like exciting, New York, big-city jazz, whereby the instruments seem to be plugged into Barman’s own neural pathways. The sound palette is even more diverse on the soon to be released ‘Artificial Horizon’. Check out superb single ‘Sharp Practice’, which – according to the English press – is ‘A deeply impulsive, energetic groove that steams jazz with late eighties hip-hop beats’.

Line up:

Tom Barman: singer/parlando
Robin Verheyen: sax
Nicolas Thys: bas
Antoine Pierre: drum

Kurt Overbergh: ‘TaxiWars is rock-’n-roll! And the most exciting thing happening on this musical soil in Belgium at the moment.’

Shabaka Hutchings, Makaya McCraven, Charles Mingus, Theon Cross, Pharoah Sanders, Archie Shepp,…

‘Sharp, energetic, but with a deep sense of groove. It’s as far removed from jazz club clichés as can be.’ (Clash)
