The Aardvark Jazz Orchestra, led by founder/director Mark Harvey, kicks off its 43rd season at Scullers with a show of Jazz Americana, featuring the CD-release of Deep River, a powerful and evocative suite written for Aardvark by Richard Nelson (“an ambitious and daring composer – Allaboutjazz.com). In addition, Aardvark performs Billy Strayhorn’s classic Chelsea Bridge, marking the centennial of this great American composer, and the band pays tribute to New Orleans a decade after hurricane Katrina, with Mark Harvey’s NOLA and Duke Ellington's raucous Second Line from his New Orleans Suite.
Aardvark is: Arni Cheatham, Peter Bloom, Phil Scarff, Chris Rakowski, Dan Zupan, Tim O’Dell/saxes and woodwinds; K.C. Dunbar, Jeanne Snodgrass/trumpets; Bob Pilkington, Anita Jerosch, Tom Plsek; Bill Lowe, bass trombone/tuba; Richard Nelson/guitar; John Funkhouser/string bass; Harry Wellott/drums; Jerry Edwards and Grace Hughes, vocalists; Mark Harvey/trumpet, music director. Aardvark veteran trombonists Jay Keyser and Jeff Marsanskis will not be on the Scullers show but should be rejoining Aardvark for the next show November 14 at MIT’s Killian Hall.
