Emmy winner saxophonist Braxton Cook (2023 Tri-C JazzFest Artist-in-Residence) is one of his generation’s most exciting voices.

FADER magazine named Cook a Jazz Marvel and Jazz Prodigy in 2017, and he was one of EBONY magazine’s Top 5 Jazz Artists to Watch in 2018. Outside of the jazz sphere, he has worked alongside Rihanna, Solange Knowles and Phony Ppl and was featured on Tom Misch’s 2018 U.S. tour.
