Tiroler Festspiele Erl - Christian Muthspiel & Orjazztra Vienna

Large jazz ensembles have become rare. Among other things, the decay of fees in the last decade has led to the loss of a culture that has helped shape the history of one of the greatest musical inventions of the 20th century: From Duke Ellington to Carla Bley, from Sun Ra Arkestra to the Vienna Art Orchestra, large bands have always belonged to the canon of improvised music. With the 18-member Orjazztra Vienna, I am now fulfilling - ignoring the passage of time - the dream of having my own jazz orchestra, which I have been dreaming of since I left the Vienna Art Orchestra in 2004. Austria and Vienna currently have an almost unbelievably dense scene of young, great musicians, who play in many of their own bands, who are curious, eager to experiment, cosmopolitan and all very well educated and therefore play at the highest technical level. For the most part, the Orjazztra consists of young people from this local scene, is unusually composed with a double rhythm section (two basses, two drums), piano, a six-piece saxophone/clarinet set, three trumpets, two trombones and a tuba, and can be described more as a contemporary jazz orchestra than as a big band. After 35 years as composer, conductor and instrumentalist, always acting between the chairs or changing them regularly - from leading numerous jazz bands
