Soul, Latin and world jazz music is played genuinely, straight ahead, and right down the middle by the New World Jazz Project.

The group is Niall McGuinness on sax, flute, and percussion; George Tavoularis on piano; Kyle Rothschild on bass; and Eric Finkelstein on drums; Eric Middleton on percussion; and Trey Stone on guitar.

(Niall McGuinness & New World Jazz Project will also be appearing Thursday, Aug. 9, from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at Cafe at Adele’s.)
