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 Barrel Room

  • The Barrel Room 105 Northwest 3rd Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

With the impending closure of one of the most iconic Jazz clubs of the last 20 years [Jimmy Mak's], means that at the start of 2017 there will be no more Wed night shows for this group. However, when one door closes another one opens. And so starting this week this group will be occupying a steady Thursday night spot at the Barrel Room in downtown Portland. And with an earlier start time, we'll now be able to cater to the crowds that normally weren't able to stay out late enough to watch us perform. So we look forward to having you help us to create the momentum needed for this place to potentially ascend to the cultural stature of our beloved Jimmy Mak's.
