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
