free jazz blog on A L´ARME FESTIVAL: Finally, Super Jazz Sandwich delivered a real contrast. Trumpeter Flavio Zanuttini, saxophonist Florian Walter and drummer Simon Camatta tried to combine freely improvised music with more traditional varieties of jazz, which resulted in a DIY punk jazz aesthetic reminding me of the Flying Luttenbachers or John Zorn’s early Ornette Coleman projects. For their new program, they tried to turn the psychological concept of the Enneagram, a nine-step model of personality description and development, into music. Their music reached from structured improvisation to game-pieces to complex compositions, which was both funny and intellectually challenging. It was a very postmodern approach that quoted a lot of styles and philosophies, once (in a game piece) they even quoted Sam Rivers’ conducting technique. Nothing new, but great fun.

Flavio Zanuttini (Trp), Florian Walter (Sax) und Simon Camatta (Dr) machen schon ungefähr so lange Musik zusammen, wie sie sich kennen. Meistens geht es ihnen dabei um die Frage, wie man Strategien frei improvisierter Musik mit traditionelleren Spielarten des Jazz zusammenbringen kann, ohne ästhetische Kompromisse eingehen zu müssen.
The Enneagram: Für ihr neues Programm haben sie sich mit dem esoterischen Konzept des Enneagramms auseinandergesetzt, einem neunstufigen Modell zur Persönlichkeitsbeschreibung und -entwicklung. Herausgekommen sind eine Vielzahl unterschiedlicher musikalischer Ansätze, von Improvisationsanleitungen über Game-Pieces hin zu komplexen Kompositionen, die nicht nur spannend klingen, sondern teilweise auch aussehen.

Flavio Zanuttini (Trp), Florian Walter (Sax) and Simon Camatta (Dr) have been making music for as long as they know each other. They are mostly concerned with the question of how to combine strategies of free improvised music with more traditional varieties of jazz, without having to compromise on aesthetics. For their new program, they have dealt with the esoteric concept of the Enneagram, a nine-step model of personality description and development. The result is a variety of different musical approaches, from improvisation guides on game pieces to complex compositions that not only sound exciting, but sometimes even look.
