Ghetto (CD)

The SPiKE Orchestra (2015)

Led by Composers Sam Eastmond and Nikki Franklin, The SPiKE Orchestra is a large ensemble dedicated to their collaborative composition. Drawing on a wide range of influences including John Zorn, Duke Ellington, Frank Zappa and Carl Stalling, Eastmond and Franklin meld divergent genres from jazz, rock, klezmer, cartoon and the avant-garde into a cohesive whole.

Inspired by the Warsaw Ghetto, this suite by Sam Eastmond and Nikki Franklin features three different-sized ensembles and melds jazz, klezmer, avant-garde and free improvisation.
