The Ark Ensemble – Might Be

now available for purchase online

The Ark Ensemble is a world music/Jewish music supergroup, consisting of Frank London, trumpet (NYC – the Klezmatics); Glenn Hartman, accordion and organ (New Orleans Klezmer Allstars); Jessica Ivry, cello (San Francisco – Feisst, Real Vocal String Quartet); John Schott, guitar (San Francisco, Tom Waits, T.J. Kirk, John Zorn); Avi Avital, mandolin (Israel/Berlin, Deutsche Grammophone); Aaron Alexander, drums and percussion (NYC – Klezmatics, Greg Wall); Stuart Brotman, bass (San Francisco, Brave Old World); Jewlia Eisenberg, voice (San Francisco, Charming Hostess); and Mariana Sadovska, voice (Ukraine).

Following concerts in Poland, Ukraine and San Francisco, this project of the Jewish Music Festival is pleased to release our debut album.

Searing guitar solos, wailing vocals, Latin rhythms, New Orleans grooves, haunting lullabies, traditional melodies, made up melodies, acoustic thrash, epic studio constructions ala Led Zep, strange Klezmer dances – this album has a little bit of everything, all played by virtuoso composer/instrumentalist/singers!
