Peter Schilperoort (November 4, 1919 – November 17, 1990) was a Dutch musician, famous for his work with the Dutch Swing College Band, and projects with other well-known musicians. He is most recognised as a saxophone and clarinet player, but also played the guitar and the banjo. Leading the Dutch Swing College Band from 1946 to 1955, then from 1960 to 1990, his style was Dixieland, a style popular at the start of the 20th century. His band became widely popular across Europe, Australia, Asia and South America in 1960, known as a Dixieland revival band. His legacy in old-style jazz has been understated.
