Mel Brown Septet
April 13 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
An event every month that begins at 7:30pm on day Second of the month, repeating until June 8, 2019
We are proud to host the magnificent Mel Brown Septet every second Saturday of each month. This our premier event. Mel is Portland’s preeminent jazz drummer, having cut his teeth at Motown recording sessions with the likes of Marvin Gaye, The Temptations and Stevie Wonder, then going on to share the stage with Diana Ross along with many other legends. And the rest of the band ain’t no slouches either. It would take too long to list all of their respective credentials, so let’s just say there’s a reason Mel chose these guys to play with.
Mel Brown: Drums
Gordon Lee: Piano
Tim Gilson: Bass
Stan Bock: Trombone and scatting
Renato Caranto: Tenor saxophone
John Nastos: Alto saxophone
Derek Sims: Trumpet
