Join us for the fourth installment of Black Tie/White Noise, where The Christopher Brown Quartet will perform David Bowie’s sixth studio album, Aladdin Sane, in its entirety.
While the Christopher Brown Quartet has been active since 2014, it has arguably been the busiest Jazz group in Portland since 2017. And just like his father [Mel Brown] before him, Christopher has been on a quest to further infuse the Portland Jazz scene with as many of the same musical and cultural sensibilities as is to be found within the NYC Jazz scene. However, what separates this group from many others (in and outside of Portland), is the degree to which their sensibilities are entrenched within the NYC sound of the 1990's, which was marked by a youthful exuberance towards being steeped in as much of the history of music as possible, so as to use those same insights to agitate the boundaries of conventional thought.
So given that David Bowie's approach to music follows the same ethos, is why it's so fitting to have the Christopher Brown Quartet navigate his music, so as to further push against the edges of what people would normally expect from Bowie himself."Notes on Seating: The Jack London provides two options for ticket purchasers. Reserved Seating is purchased on a table-by-table basis in the central part of the venue and is only available for select shows.
