Word on the Street...

-Ken Boddie. Portland, OR.

KOIN 6 News Anchor


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 @ Jimmy Mak's

  • Jimmy Mak's 221 Northwest 10th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

As a group that's dedicated to upholding the highest level of excellence, these weekly performances at Jimmy Mak's represent an earnest desire to raise the bar for all music in Portland. And this group does so by re-imagining some of the most iconic popular songs from the 1980's through a musical sensibility that's akin to that of early Wynton Marsalis, Kenny Garrett, Herbie Hancock, Miles Davis and more. So if you're looking for a very different musical experience, then look no further!
