Complex jazz orchestra sounds: The Austrian trombonist and composer Christian Muthspiel is known as a member of the Vienna Art Orchestra and the duo Muthspiel & Muthspiel (with his brother Wolfgang).

With the 18-member Orjazztra Vienna, he is now fulfilling his dream of having his own jazz orchestra. The ensemble stands out for its unusual instrumentation: a double rhythm section (two basses, two drums), a piano, a six-piece saxophone/clarinet section, three trumpets, two trombones and a tuba. Muthspiel’s role models from Duke Ellington to the Sun Ra Arkestra to Carla Bley can be found here as influences.

After 35 years as a composer, conductor and instrumentalist, the Orjazztra is to become my musical focus for the next few years. An orchestral approach to contemporary jazz via complex scores, which at the same time give the individual soloists the appropriate improvisational freedom, sonically characterised by an acoustic sound, in this case deliberately free of electronics, trained on the virtues of classical orchestral playing.
