'72 Harvey, Cheatham Recordings Re-Released

Long-time stellar saxophonist ARNI CHEATHAM and music director MARK HARVEY both have "new" recordings available on the Internet. Actually, these are digital download re-releases of LPs that appeared in 1972.

Part of the new "Massachusetts Underground Jazz Series" produced by Andrew Shrock and www.ReRelease.net, these albums, and more to follow by an array of other artists from that period, provide rich aural portraits of the vibrant music scene in Boston and environs more than three decades ago.

Arni is joined by his band "Thing" which is also the title of the album. Mark collaborates with fellow Aardvarkians PETER BLOOM and CRAIG ELLIS in "The Mark Harvey Group In Concert" recording.

Challenging, exploratory music for adventurous ears!

Recent: Satire & Salutations

 Aardvark’s recent November Post-Election concert, funded in part by the MIT DeFlorez Fund for Humor and entitled “Satire & Salutations” was a rollicking event. Quotes from Mark Twain, and the spirit of H. L. Mencken held sway as Mark Harvey’s original pieces such as “Flat Earth Boogie,” “De-Evolution Blues,” and “Scamology” evoked the political/cultural scene, introduced by hilarious anecdotes from former De Florez Professor Jay Keyser, a member of the orchestra.  

And the standing-room-only crowd also heard a salute to past “Rascals & Scoundrels” James Michael Curley and Charles Ponzi.  All in all, a  musical-satirical evening that neatly counterpointed the best of our national stand-up comics. The event was held at Killian Hall, MIT.
