Feel it. The sticky faux leather of the backseat. Smell it. A whiff of alcohol, mixed with the driver' s cologne. You can almost taste it: the fear of being conned, the terror of a high-speed crash, the promise of excitement just around the corner. Taxi rides are all of that. Tom Barman loves them. It' s like indoor travelling, he says. It' s cosmopolitan. It' s the rush of not knowing exactly where you' re going. It' s part of the art of living far from home. Sounds like a definition of jazz, if ever there was one. And TaxiWars is jazz. This is not rock singer Tom Barman crooning away with a jazz trio led by saxophonist Robin Verheyen. This is a jazz band with a deep knowledge of the music' s history, and a love for the driving jazz of the early sixties on the Impulse! label. The music of Pharaoh Sanders, Archie Shepp, and Charles Mingus – full of swing, pulse, and the urge to break out of the genre' s confinements. Mingus is no stranger to Barman – a sample of the bassist' s Far Wells, Mill Valley dominated dEUS' s classic Theme from Turnpike. And like Mingus himself, TaxiWars can sound warm and engaging one minute – as in the hypnotizing track Pearlescent –, yet bellicose and menacing the next. Listen to Let's Get Killed ( Bangkok felt like suicide! ) and try not to be alarmed by Barman' s effects drenched vocals. Barman: At home, I listen to jazz almost exclusively, trying to escape from the tried and true pop structures – there are no choruses in TaxiWars. And those record sleeves fit well with my Impulse! orange furniture. TaxiWars display high energy and sensitivity, pride and ambition, and a punkiness that sets the band apart from the plush jazz scene, all thanks to Belgian saxophonist Robin Verheyen' s punchy, melodic lines and Tom Barman' s haunting lyrics.
