Aardvark Audio: Listen to MP3s

Selected excerpts (click on a link to download MP3): 

  1. Echoes
  2. Scamology   
  3. For Edward    (full track)
  4. Blue Sequence  
  5. Freedom Song

Here is a sampling of response to this CD:

"Aardvark Steps Out, footprints a rumble with jurassic import and power. The uncontrollable aspects of a juggernaut unleashed provide much of the Aardvark's awe-inspiring audience fascination."  Downbeat

". . . relentless dedication to a cutting-edge approach . . . with exciting exploratory solos."  Boston Globe

"Aardvark Steps Out is a bracing walk on the wild side of the big band spectrum. . . Aardvark suggests the best and brashest of Charles Mingus, Gil Evans, George Russell, and even Frank Zappa. . . In all, a refreshing breath of spirited yet structured rebellion from the tried and true. On, Aardvark!"  Jazz Times
