Portrait of Band Leader Maurice Van Eyck


When Brian Turnock messaged me with the sad news that Maurice Van Eyck, formerly band leader of The New Orleans Z’Hulus, had passed away I promptly decided to ask my very good friend and fellow artist, Grace McKee, if she would paint a portrait of Maurice to commemorate him.

Then when I posted the portrait on Facebook and on my Facebook Jazzers Group the response was instantaneous and spontaneously positive. So I decided Grace’s portrait deserves pride of place as the latest art feature on Jazz&Jazz.
