Secret Society Ballroom
116 NE Russell St.
 
[FOLKY JAZZ] Not content with his roles in the jazz ensemble the Wishermen and indie-folk band Alameda, the busy young drummer-composer, who also plays flute and guitar, has just issued one of the year’s most impressive Portland jazz releases, Songs For a Young Heart. It features recent New York transplant Tom Barber on trumpet, saxophonist Nicole Glover, bassist Jon Lakey and guitarist Adam Brock. While jazz heads will appreciate their improvisatory acumen, the Lewis & Clark alum and Alan Jones protégé’s folk background is reflected in the album’s memorable original melodies. But he’s also capable of surprises: a vocal coda here, a Debussy-inspired ballad there. Like those other Portland-bred jazzers Blue Cranes and Esperanza Spalding, Brown stands a real chance of breaking out of the jazz bubble and reaching much broader audiences. 

Where: Secret Society Ballroom
Address: 116 NE Russell St.
