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 John Nastos Quartet @ The Art Bar

  • The Art Bar 1111 SW Broadway Portland, OR. 97205 United States (map)

Every year the PDX Jazz Festival hosts a fantastic two week long stretch of events throughout the greater Portland area, which brings fans of this music to Portland from far and wide. And so this year I look forward to performing with one of my favorite saxophonist (anywhere) in the lobby area of the Portland Center for the Arts, which serves as the location of both The Art Bar as well as the de-facto rally point for all the social activity related to the Jazz festival’s presence. So be sure to come through to where the center of all the action will be.
