Dave Sletten: A History of the WCJO

Dave Sletten was a founding member of the WCJO (Wolverines Classic Jazz Orchestra) and he was a member of the De Stijlistics septet and the ACJO 20th Anniversary band.

Fate caused him to succumb to melanoma cancer at age 45. Several months before, he sent me 22 pages of "A History Of The Wolverines Classic Jazz Orchestra". I scanned them and consolidated them into one PDF file.

Click on the file below for Dave's loving tribute to an unusual experiment in music. I know if Dave were alive today, he would be an enthusiastic supporter of my CJO efforts. He is truly missed.
