About

Part of PIFA 2013: The 1946 Victory Day parade overlooked the rationing, shortages, industry nationalizations, and other wartime hardships that persisted in London. Woodmere will recreate the jazz party on the banks of the Thames River and Westminster Bridge as was done when King George VI went by on his Royal Barge. Music will be performed by the Arpeggio Jazz Ensemble with guests Harold Watkins on trombone, Monique Canniere on violin, and Jim Holton on piano. Songs will include “It Don’t Mean a Thing If It Ain’t Got That Swing,” “Jumpin’ at the Woodside,” and “Lester Leaps In.”
