Aardvark has won praise from jazz critics across the
Allaboutjazz.com praised the group's lush sonorities...a
saxophonic blend worthy of Duke's finest reed sections.
JazzTimes called Aardvark “a bracing walk on the wild
side of the big band spectrum...Aardvark suggests the
best and the brashest of Charles Mingus, Gil Evans,
George Russell, and even Frank Zappa.”
Other kudos include:
“The AJO has become adept over the years at blending
improvised and compositional elements, full-on free-for-
all and the most delicate of sound patterns….admirers of
large-scale improvised jazz will be delighted with the
exuberance, imagination and sheer brio in evidence
throughout this rich, absorbing album.” ~
