'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: Echoes & Resonance, Celebrating 50 Years of Jazz at MIT
Aardvark Jazz Orchestra at MIT
Saturday, April 20, 2013 at 8:00 pm
MIT, Kresge Auditorium in Cambridge, MA

Aardvark performed on MIT's main stage in a program entitled "Echoes & Resonance" as part of the 50th Anniversary of Jazz at MIT. Music director Mark Harvey reprised two of his major MIT commissions for the April 20th show: Beyond (written for the MIT Wind Ensemble and featuring Herb Pomeroy and Ran Blake in the premiere), and Saxophrenia (composed for the MIT Festival Jazz Ensemble, featuring Joe Lovano in the premiere). The concert also invoked memories of legendary musicians and their connections to Aardvark and MIT: Jaki Byard, who performed with Aardvark in 1986 in Kresge Auditorium, and Mercer Ellington, who lectured to Mark Harvey's classes at MIT and donated his arrangement of Moon Mist to the band.
 
Harvey dedicated the concert to the memory of the victims of the Boston Marathon bombings as well as MIT police Officer Sean Collier. He introduced the show saying he hoped it would “reaffirm the power of music and of life.”
