Braxton Cook is one of this generation’s brightest up and coming alto saxophonists and songwriters. He has performed alongside Wynton Marsalis, Jon Batiste and has toured the world many times over with Grammy Nominated Trumpeter Christian Scott all while attending the prestigious Juilliard School. As a band-leader, he has already recorded and released two projects and is now currently working on his debut album. His newest music features not only his abilities as a saxophonist and songwriter, but also features his vocal abilities. Braxton melds all of these elements into his music creating a very unique genre-blending sound that one could describe as Millennial Jazz — accessible to the avid Jazz listener as well as to the R&B and Soul music lover.
QUOTES AND REVIEWS.
“the inclusion of 21-year old saxophonist Braxton Cook, who joined the group during its weekend, engagement, was an inspired choice. Cook’s texture and tone channeled the spirit of John Coltrane’s “Alabama.” From his unwavering high notes to his forceful shouts of anger projected toward the audience…”
“we found ourselves transfixed by the intelligent phrasing and rich tone of a young saxophonist named Braxton Cook”
