Barra Brown Quintet


Lead by gifted, chameleonic drummer Barra Brown―who happens to be manning the skins for Alameda, another PDX Pop Now! 2014 performer―this quintet showcases Brown’s polyrhythmic muses, steeping smooth jazz saxes within steamy, exploratory compositions. The group’s 2013 LP for the Portland Jazz Composers’ Ensemble label (PJCE), Songs for a Young Heart, is bursting with inspired moments, and is a diverse slab of what the future of jazz looks like.
