Patrick Battstone

Patrick Battstone Dec 2010 Patrick Battstone began performing music professionally at the age of 14, playing in various rock, blues, and R&B bands in South Western Ohio. By the time he was 18, he had received lessons from Stan Kenton and Gary Burton, had been mentored by Oscar Treadwell (Oska T), and had played with James Brown’s recording sidemen as well as members of the musical “Hair”.

In 1973, he attended Berklee College of Music and soon after became a student of both Mme Chaloff and Charlie Banacos. During this time he performed at various Boston venues, both as a solo pianist, and as a member of various ensembles. One of his bands, which featured hometown friend Grover Mooney, opened the fabled 1369 Club in Cambridge. Later, they collaborated in booking the Green St Station and the Arbor House as well as hosting late night jams sessions.

During the 80’s, Patrick studied the works of Scriabin under the renowned Serge Conus. In 1986, he resumed jazz studies with Joanne Brackeen in NYC for a period of six years.

In the past 2 decades, he has been involved in various musical activities. He is fluid in both solo appearances as well as leading ensembles; in both acoustic settings as well as electric. He leads an acoustic trio and quartet and performs in numerous electric funk/rock groups. He is experienced in performing for receptions, dinner parties, lounges, parlors, etc., and can adapt his playing to fit any occasion.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
