Gulgoleth is the brainchild of composer Sam Eastmond, leader of the eclectic jazz/rock/Radical Jewish Culture big band Spike Orchestra and frequent collaborator with musical mastermind John Zorn. The album features the engine room of the Spike Orchestra stripped back to a quartet setting to highlight the virtuosic skill of the players and this outrageous set of compositions. Drawing inspiration from the work of underground filmmaker Jack Smith and the process of creating arrangements of music from Zorn’s Masada songbook, this highly personal and intense album is a journey through a free-jazz, surf, rock, cartoon, Radical Jewish Culture and Downtown film noir dreamscape.
