Categories No Categories

Salty’s in Portland is serving up more than just great seafood, we also offer live music in our Cafe-Bar. We feature a truly magnificent trio of world-class jazz players Jof Lee on piano, Tim Gilson on bass and Mel Brown on drums. Drummer Mel Brown is known as Portland’s ultimate timekeeper and “Mister Groove.” An Oregon icon in jazz, drummer Mel Brown has been labeled the ‘Gentleman of Jazz’, with a career spanning over 40 years. Jof Lee is known as the pianist of choice and is a very active composer and arranger with a unique improvisational style.

“Many times I listened to the immortal trio of Jof Lee, Leroy Vinnegar and Mel Brown plug in and go into some sort of unearthly orbit. They were simply stunning in the music they played and the way they played it.” The Online Festival.
