Jazz Portrait: Roger on Banjo and Pat on Drums, “A Strummin’ and a Drummin'”

Jazz painting of Roger Nicholls on banjo and Pat Elms on drums

One of my favourite Jazz portraits, especially as so sadly, Pat Elms is no longer with us having passed away early in 2015. But here he is on drums alongside Roger Nicholls on banjo with Bob Thomas and The Thomcats playing at “Jazz on the Island” in Lemsford, Hertfordshire, back in 2011.

A Strummin’ and a Drummin’

Cymbals afire, drums aglow,
Pat on percussion, timing the flow,
For Roger on banjo in rhythmic solo.
