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.

The Christopher Brown Quartet @ The 1905 w/Special Guest

  • The 1905 803 North Shaver Street Portland, OR, 97227 United States (map)

There's an inherent seductiveness that's found within people and structures that exude an air of timelessness. And like Jazz, when those people and structures are rooted by the best qualities of the past, a type of unapologetic swagger is conveyed that makes everyone stand back to take notice. And as such, there's currently a creative movement that's well underway on Wednesday nights at The 1905 that does an exceptional job of marrying the past with the present so as to present a vision of an artistic future that we'd all be inclined to embrace. So on this night we’ll be highlighting vocalist Saeeda Wright, how’s arguably on of the best kept secrets in the entire NW. So if there were ever a night to attend, it would be this one!!!
