Christopher Brown

Word on the Street...

Chris Brown is home father, like son...making music to appeal to the next generation.

-Ken Boddie. Portland, OR.

Coast-hopping, Jazz-drumming, Chris Brown is back in town!


Brown has gained a stellar reputation as one of the bright new talents on the scene, working with a who's who of Jazz artist.


This quartet is so amazing on so many different levels...go see 'em whilst they still exist in PDX. I really think this one could go a long way in the Jazz world!

-Bob Stark. Portland, OR.

Producer/Sound Engineer Kung Fu Bakery Studio.


He is a uniquely talented performer and educator, and a man in whom I trust and for whom I hold great admiration.

-Conrad Herwig. New York, NY.

Director of Jazz Studies, Rutgers University, NJ, and 3x Grammy Nominated artist.


I used him almost exclusively in my band when he used to reside in the NYC area, as he always brought so much knowledge and artistry to the music. And combined with his multi-instrumentalist abilities, Chris Brown is a unique talent that's not often found.

-Mark Gross. New York, NY.

80's Rewind & Unwind celebrates "International Jazz Day"

  • Jimmy Maks 221 NW 10th Ave Portland OR 97209 United States (map)

Even though Christopher performs every week at Jimmy Mak's at this time, this particular performance happens to land on April 30th, which, as a result of the efforts of the United Nations, is now globally recognized as "International Jazz Day." So this performance will represent Portland, Oregon's official participation with the United Nations, Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organizations' (UNESCO) celebratory day. So as always, Christopher's time slot on Wednesday's at Jimmy Mak's is dedicated to featuring his re-imaging of iconic 80's pop music through the lens of a Jazz perspective.
