Alan Bateman is not only a very well recognized jazz trumpeter, he too is a very keen painter. He has just finished a very nice portrait of Chris Barber, exactly for Chris' 85th Birthday. Thanks Alan, for giving the permission to publish this great painting here on the Chris Barber website!

At the occasion of Chris Barber's 85th anniversary, Alan Bateman, British painter and jazz trumpet player, painted a great portrait of Chris and we got the permission to publish this picture here.

It was only last week when Alan met Chris to hand over the jubilee portrait. Thanks to Alan for sending us the picture of this remarkable moment.

And at the beginning of February 2016 we got another painting by Alan! Chris and Pat as we remember them playing for years. Thank you Alan for sharing these pictures with us
