Remembering Pat Halcox


Pat Halcox was the trumpet player in Chris Barber's band for 54 years. That alone produced the longest serving partnership in Jazz anywhere in the world. A self-effacing man whose playing was described as "fiery, creative and with an impressive range". Quite simply he was one of the finest Jazz trumpeters the UK has ever produced. The first CD in this double CD (for the price of one) collection takes a few tracks from each decade with Chris Barber's band. Making appearances are Ottilie Patterson, Lonnie Donegan, Kenny Ball and Alex Welsh. The second CD has tracks of Pat with other musicians and bands including leading American pianists Art Hodes and Don Ewell. There are also tracks by Pat's own All Stars. All the tracks are previously unreleased.
