If you go
What: New World Jazz Project
When: 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12
Where: The Fresh Ketch, South Lake Tahoe
A South Shore jazz group will celebrate the release of their latest album at The Fresh Ketch this weekend.
New World Jazz Project will play songs from their new disc, “Bolero,” as well as jazz classics starting at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 12.
“Bolero,” an orchestral piece originally composed as a ballet, is Maurice Ravel’s most famous composition. The piece will lead Saturday’s show.
“Starting with the title cut from the next album, our interpretation of Maurice Ravel’s Bolero launches an hour-long set of original compositions and freshly-penned arrangements of such classics as Miles Davis’ ‘All Blues,’ John Coltrane’s ‘Equinox’ and Michel LeGrand’s ‘What Are You Doing the Rest of Your Life,” according to a email from New World Jazz Project frontman Niall McGuinness. “It’s a mixed bag of grooves, from Latin to chill-jazz and beyond. We know you’ll enjoy this latest chapter of New World Jazz Project.”
McGuinness (saxophone, flute, percussion) is joined by George Tavoularis (piano), Kyle Rothchild (bass) and Eric Finkelstein (drums) in the group.
The Fresh Ketch is located at 2345 Venice Drive East in South Lake Tahoe.
“With spectacular views of the marina and the scenic Tahoe Basin in the background, The Fresh Ketch is one of Lake Tahoe’s hidden gems,” said its website
