Braxton Cook

Emmy Award-Winning, Juilliard-trained saxophonist, singer, songwriter and jazz prodigy Braxton Cook is one of this generation’s most exciting voices. In 2013, Braxton was selected as a semi-finalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition. In 2015, he graduated from The Juilliard School, where he studied Jazz Composition. While a student, Braxton toured with Grammy Award-nominated trumpeter Christian Scott and has since toured and performed with Christian McBride Big Band, Jon Batiste, Tom Misch, and Marquis Hill, among others. His most recent album release, No Doubt debuted #2 on iTunes Jazz Chart, amassing 1M streams in its first month. Five (previously independently-released) projects later, Fader Magazine has named Braxton a "Jazz Marvel" and "Jazz Prodigy," The New Yorker describes his music as "visceral" and "virtuosic," and Ebony Magazine listed Braxton as a "Top Five Jazz Artist to Watch" (alongside Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington, Butcher Brown, and Kris Bowers). Other press highlights include NPR "Tiny Desk" and features with BET, Okayplayer, Billboard, Interview Magazine and PAPER. Stay tuned for more music from his Nettwerk debut EP out this fall.
