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.

80's Rewind & Unwind @ Jimmy Mak's

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

If you're not already on board with the musical movement that we're trying to expand here in Portland, I'd like to encourage you to get involved by coming out to Jimmy Mak's EVERY WEDNESDAY NIGHT so you too can be counted as part of our tribe, as we're steadily growing to the point where I predict that this culture will begin to affect the cultural climate here in Portland by the end of the year. 

So as always, come get your fill of Jazz music from the #1 place to do so in the state of Oregon evey Wednesday, as between my father's [Mel Brown] band (7:30-9pm) and mine, there's no other family affair quite like this one that you'll find anywhere in the NW that's all under one roof.
