Braxton Cook is an Emmy Award Winning Artist and one of this generation’s most exciting emerging voices in the Jazz world. Braxton grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland. 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 at Juilliard, Braxton toured with Grammy Award-nominated trumpeter Christian Scott and became a long-term member in Christian’s band honing his skills on the road. He has also toured and performed with Christian McBride Big Band, Jon Batiste and Marquis Hill among others.

In 2017, Fader Magazine named Braxton a “Jazz Marvel” and “Jazz Prodigy.” And shortly after, Braxton was listed as Top Five Jazz Artist to Watch (alongside Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington, Butcher Brown, and Kris Bowers) in the 2018 June Issue of Ebony Magazine. Braxton has released six projects: his debut EP Sketch (2014), Braxton Cook Meets Butcher Brown (2015), Somewhere in Between (2017), No Doubt (2018), Fire Signs (2020) and Who Are You When No One Is Watching (2023). Braxton currently resides in Los Angeles, CA with his wife and son.
