oseph M. Peterson is a well-known jazz bassist with many musical accomplishments to his name. You wouldn’t know it, but he started out playing heavy metal before he immersed himself in the music which is now his passion. Lucky for our local jazz lovers, Joe will be bringing his eclecticism to the Chubby Pickle with the “Peterson/Weeks Quintet” on Saturday evening, May 20.
