Aardvark Jazz Orchestra at Shalin Liu Performance Center
Rockport Music Presented "Salute to Duke! The Worlds of Duke Ellington" 
 
On Saturday evening, March 4, 2017, the Aardvark Jazz Orchestra, led by founder/director Mark Harvey, explored the Worlds of Duke Ellington to a packed house at the Shalin Liu Performance Center in Rockport, Mass. Aardvark received a standing ovation after a memorable performance with classics like  Don’t Get Around Much Anymore, Satin Doll, C Jam Blues, I'm Beginning to See the Light, and Billy Strayhorn’s Daydream.
 
Concertgoers enjoyed music from Ellington’s film scores (including Wild Man Moore for Louis Armstrong), and New Orleans Suite (with a tribute to Mahalia Jackson).  
  
The orchestra also performed Mark Harvey’s No Walls, an anthem of inclusivity inspired by Ellington’s concept of “beyond category.”
