The acclaimed Aardvark Jazz Orchestra celebrates the release of the band’s 15th CD, Democratic Vistas (Aardvark’s 9th recording on the prestigious Leo Records label). Original compositions by music director Mark Harvey from the album's centerpiece "Swamp-A-Rama" suite will be featured, including "Fake News Blewz” and "Trumputin Tango." The concert finale will be “No Walls,” Aardvark’s anthem of hope and inclusivity. In early critical acclaim, Democratic Vistas has been praised for evoking “the spirit of Charles Ives, Mingus, Sun Ra, Charlie Haden, turbulent and full of contrasts." (Bad Alchemy, Germany). Music Zoom (Italy) hailed the orchestra’s “excellent soloists,” while Jazz World USA wrote that the pieces "swing and sway like a trapeze on a loose rope making the listener hold on tight to hang on!" Mark Harvey and his legendary band are marking their 46th season, beginning this Fall.
