Word on the Street...

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

  • The 1905 830 N Shaver St Portland, OR. 97227 (map)

We're excited to have another regular residency in the wake of the loss of Portland's iconic Jazz venue Jimmy Mak's. And so with newcomer The 1905 having already begun to make a strong name for itself within Portland's Jazz scene, we look forward to seeing what the future holds for this great new venue. And the best part of it is that for once minors can come observe this group's performances as it's not only at an earlier time slot than most of our performances, but also open to minors in general.
