Alan Bateman’s Empathetic Portrait of Chris Barber and Pat Halcox

Art and painting are a wonderful therapies. I still paint the occasional portrait although due to damaged shoulders I can no longer paint with a steady hand at the easel. So these days it’s a privilege to feature on Jazz&Jazz Alan Bateman’s superb jazz portraits and here is his latest masterpiece – a wonderfully nostalgic portrait of the much missed Pat Halcox in duet with Chris Barber.


It hardly seems three years since Pat’s passing and I think it appropriate to feature along with Alan’s portrait the wonderful tribute my good friend and musician Bob Thomas wrote for Jazz&Jazz to commemorate him:

Remembering Pat Halcox
