Brown Branch is one of the Portland music scene’s finest treasures and certainly worth boasting about. Its band members include Portlander-turned-New Yorker drummer and composer Domo Branch as well as local jazz pianist and producer Charlie Brown. Brown, who sometimes goes by Charlie 3rown or Charlie Brown III, has worked with artists like Aminé, Reva DeVito, and Blossom, and of late has supported Memphis-based bass guitar prodigy MonoNeon on the international tour circuit, including a couple of spectacular sets at Pickathon in August. Just a week before Christmas, the duo will perform a holiday show in tribute to jazz legend Count Basie, offering a modern twist to the great musician’s catalog. Anyone who attended last year’s Brown Branch Presents: Duke Ellington’s Nutcracker Suite is already looking for tickets. Branch on drums and Brown on the piano, the duo will play with the 17-piece Brown Branch Big Band, which includes acclaimed musicians like saxophonists Max Roark, Kevin Oliver, Mieke Bruggeman, Devin Phillips, and Hailey Niswanger; trombonists Kyle Molitor, James Powers, Adriana Wagner, Denzel Mendoza; trumpeters Noah Simpson, Abner Deltle, Cameron Formanczyk, Justin Copeland; Bassist Finn Jones, and guitarist Jack Radsliff. That’s a lot of names and a lot of talent, right there.
