[SOUL JAZZ] In the world of music, it’s often only later in their career that excellent session musicians receive the attention they deserve. Mel Brown is one such individual. After drumming for Smokey Robinson, Diana Ross and the Temptations, Brown turned from R&B to jazz, and moved from Motown to Stumptown. Brown and his various bandmates are widely recognized as some of the finest jazz musicians in the Northwest, and their straight-ahead jazz style—4/4 beats, a walking bass and plenty of classic solos—can be heard six nights a week at Jimmy Mak’s. The B3 Organ Group is the most talented and lively of all of Brown’s bands. The music world’s been good to Brown, but if it had been truly just, this musician would be destined for a scale far larger than Portland.
