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 Next Legacy Jazz Jam Session @ No Vacancy Lounge

  • No Vacancy Lounge 235 Southwest 1st Avenue Portland, OR, 97204 United States (map)

Since the inception of Jazz, the jam session has served as a linchpin for the creation of the music’s culture and sound. It’s the space where reputations—for better or for worse—are made, and where certain musical kinships are later developed into full-fledged working units. So in short, it’s where the culture of the greater Jazz community is preserved, as its often unspoken rules are codified through this type of public practice. So whether you’re a professional, a beginner, or simply a fan of live music, we encourage you to come contribute your presence to the spirit of this event.
