New Sanae/Braxton Album Coming July 8!

Tom Braxton and Robert Sanae are set to release a new collaborative album, The Other Side, on the Pacific Coast Jazz label on July 8!  Just like the perfect cup of coffee, Sanae and Braxton have brewed a delicious blend of contemporary, chill, and smooth jazz.  Sanae's nine originals and the Stylistics' classic "People Make the World Go Round" feature his mellow trumpet with Braxton's complimentary soprano, alto, and tenor saxophones.  Robert's keyboards and production worked hand in hand with Tom's ideas as they co-produced and added friends Al Turner (bassist for Earl Klugh) and flutist Bradley Leighton (Pacific Coast Jazz).  This collaboration marks a first for Sanae and Braxton and it is very comfortable and productive.  There is a spark between these two that we certainly hope to see again down the road in their musical journeys.  This new album is available for pre-order on Amazon and iTunes.

SmoothJazz.com Calls Tom Braxton's New Album "A Guaranteed Chart Topper"

By Sandy Shore.  A truly revered saxophonist... Tom Braxton is highly respected by both the world-class artists he performs with and the fans that watch him play!  With a tone that is rich and distinctive, there’s no wonder why this star player commands attention.  Tom’s highly anticipated 8th solo release, THE NEXT CHAPTER, is a feel-good, body movin’, soulfully positive collection of tunes, featuring Grammy winners Bob James, Ricky Lawson, Earl Klugh, along with one of Smooth Jazz’s most beloved guitarists, Peter White!  In addition to outstanding, original compositions, you’ll find sweet covers of favorites including the OJay’s “I Love Music,” and the Spinner’s “I’ll Be Around;” tunes that bring to mind the fun vibe of the late Wayman Tisdale, whom Braxton supported as Musical Director for 17 years.  In addition to his own band, you can occasionally enjoy him with Earl Klugh and Keiko Matsui.  Brimming with good vibes, Tom Braxton’s THE NEXT CHAPTER is a guaranteed chart topper!
