Virtual Jazz Concerts

The WGES Leadership Committee has its own C. Dewitt Peterson, WG’56. Dpeterson53@comcast.net

Pete, as he answers to, has been organizing and holding Jazz concerts in the Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey area for years. But during the Covid19 pandemic, they have obviously been put on hold.

However, we are initiating virtual jazz moments for our WGES members. Pete will suggest a number of leading Jazz artists and you can find them on the internet, most prominently on YouTube. A good example is Stephanie Trick and Paolo Alderighi  boogie woogie piano version of countless songs you know. Start with their “Mack the Knife”, which will wow you and that leads to much more you can play as a concert or even daily.

“Pete” has endless suggestions for jazz videos that include:

  • Galvanized Jazz Band of Guilford, CT
  • New Jersey Jazz Society
  • Tri-State Jazz Society
  • Wolverine Jazz Band of Boston

There are many more – for each update of the WGES website, there will be others you can search for your virtual concerts If you want, Pete would be happy for you to contact him directly dpeterson53@comcast.net.

You are encouraged to also purchase music from these jazz musicians.  That makes sure jazz will be with us for years.
