Christopher Brown

Word on the Street...

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

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.

"Find Your Voice" @ Jimmy Mak's

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

As this Portland State University hosted concert @ Jimmy Mak's is being used to bring attention to their Jazz department's scholarship program, it will also highlight three bands that are led by three of the departments faculty members. And of the three, I'll be performing with two of them [The Ezra Weiss Sextet & George Colligan Trio]. But augmenting at least one of the bands [George Colligan Trio] will be Jazz trumpet star Sean Jones, whom happens to be a former college classmate of mine from Rutgers University, and whom I haven't worked with in over 10 years. So needless to say, this will be a sweet reunion for the both of us!
