JAZZ THIS WEEK IN NEW BRUNSWICK

The great pianist NAT ADDERLEY, JR. who spent most of his professional music career in R&B, most notably as arranger for the late, great Luther Vandross will close out our two years at INC.  Nat Jr.'s talent & impeccable music pedigree keep him in demand. He always brings a night of hot and cool swinging tunes! Next week Nat will also launch our Wednesdays at the new venue, Tavern on George!
