Jazz saxophonist Tom Braxton has garnered critical acclaim while thrilling audiences of all ages from coast to coast and abroad for over two decades. From Africa to Japan...from New York to L.A., Braxton’s distinct, melodic sound leaves audiences astounded, clapping, and on their feet screaming for more! His music can be heard on radio and television airwaves nationwide, and his albums have hit numerous jazz charts including Billboard, RadioWave, SmoothJazz.com, Groove Jazz Music, Capital Jazz Radio, and Amazon. That's why Jazz Review calls Braxton "one of smooth jazz's most prolific saxophonists...with all the required tools to become a major force." In the summer of 2020, Braxton signed with Innervision Records and released a single entitled "Lookin' Up". This fun, upbeat track was written and produced by Los Angeles keyboardist Herman Jackson. Tom’s second single, Hope for Tomorrow, features the jazz icon Bob James. Both singles landed on the Smooth Jazz Billboard Chart, and ranked #1 on Amazon’s Best Seller and New Releases list! Tom’s new album, also entitled Lookin' Up, was released on August 6, 2021. Additionally, this versatile instrumentalist has recorded nine albums including The Other Side (2016), The Next Chapter (2014), Endless Highway (2009), and Imagine This (2007) on the Pacific Coast Jazz label and Bounce (2005) on the Rendezvous label. The Next Chapter features Grammy winners Bob James, Earl Klugh, and Ricky Lawson, as well as one of Smooth Jazz's most beloved guitarists, Peter White, who all lend their amazing talents to stellar duets with Tom's lyrical saxophone. He was inducted into the West Texas Walk of Fame in 2017. He has also been a featured artist and fan favorite on the Smooth Jazz Cruise for 12 years. This charismatic performer has been a headliner on the Algarve Smooth Jazz Festival in Portugal, the Stanbic Jazz Festival in Ghana, the Smooth Jazz Europe Festival in the Netherlands, and the Nile Gold Jazz Safari in Uganda. He was also showcased on the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia. Braxton is currently touring with Earl Klugh in the U.S., with past tours in South Africa, Malawi, Mozambique, Ghana, and Japan. He has also performed with Keiko Matsui in Russia, Eastern Europe, Malaysia, and Japan. For 17 years, Tom toured extensively with Wayman Tisdale as his Musical Director.
