Aardvark Jazz Orchestra CD, Passages (2016) Leo Records

Passages (Leo Records) 

The Aardvark Jazz Orchestra continued its 43rd season on MIT’s mainstage, Kresge Auditorium, with a concert showcasing the North American release of the band’s 14th CD, Passages (Leo Records), featuring compositions by Aardvark music director Mark Harvey.  The CD has already garnered rave reviews in Europe:

Fresh….unconventional….Aardvark Jazz Orchestra proves once more its reputation as one of the best jazz ensembles in the world.  - Jazz Podium, Germany

Highly imaginative and varied music which is marvelously suggestive of its themes….The Aardvark Jazz Orchestra play beautifully all the way through the album.  It speaks an extraordinary dialectic, harmonious though bizarrely ruminating.  Exceptional music indeed.  - Jazz Views (UK)

In the April 2016 show, Aardvark performed the centerpiece of the new CD, Commemoration (Boston 2013), a tribute to the victims and survivors of the Boston Marathon tragedy.  In addition, Harvey presented Dreaming (2014) and No Walls (2004), and premieres of his latest works Fluctuations and By the Way.
