Saxophonist and composer Tom Braxton grew up in Texas. At an early age, his dad, saxophonist James (J.T.) Braxton, introduced him to jazz. Tom started to play piano in the 4th grade, but two years later, his father put the alto sax in his hands. During his college years, he formed the jazz-fusion band “No Compromise” which opened concerts for Joe Sample, Stanley Clarke, George Howard, and many others. After graduating summa cum laude with a Bachelor of Music/Performance degree, he decided to launch his solo career. In 1992, Tom released his debut album with producer Bernard Wright. Bernard also got him to gig with Wayman Tisdale and Tom toured extensively with Wayman for 17 years, also serving as Musical Director. Up to now, he has recorded nine albums, and they all numerous jazz charts. Through the years, Braxton has shared stage with many well-known artists such as Dave Koz, Candy Dulfer, Brian Culbertson, Bob James, George Duke, Earl Klugh, Kirk Whalum, Jonathan Butler, Jeff Golub, Marcus Miller, Keiko Matsui, Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross and Sheila E. The energetic, charismatic performer knows how to charm audiences of all ages. His distinctive and recognizable sound incorporates elements of Jazz, Latin, Funk, and R&B.
