Psalms & Elegies (1997)
  This recording includes "Tiananmen Elegy," "Don Cherry's Song of Beauty" and
"Psalms" recorded live at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival.

Here is a sampling of response to this recording:

"There's an all-pervading honesty to this music, both in its conception and execution. The latter aspect depends on the ensemble's notable precision and the strength of its soloists . . . Harvey's compositions unfold naturally and forcefully . . . the music moves with logic and momentum. Aardvark gives one hope for the future of the large jazz ensemble. This is a very fine band, and a very fine album." Cadence

"A brave and unusual venture" The Wire

"The playing is spectacular, the music is adventurous, interesting and spiritual."
Cathy Austin, KZSU-FM

An Aardvark Christmas (1997)

This recording contains carols from around the world in a wide variety of styles.Here is a sample of the response to this recording:

"The sound is a modern blend of jazz, classical, and multi- cultural folk music. . . Appalachian and African-American carols, a delightful calypso, and a New Orleans second-line styled version of "Jingle Bells". . . . if you've got big ears, you'll hear a lot of joy in this fine work."
