Braxton Cook at BIRD

Braxton grew up in Silver Spring, Maryland. In 2013, Braxton was selected as a semifinalist in the Thelonious Monk International Jazz Saxophone Competition. In 2015, he graduated from The Juilliard School, where he studied jazz composition. While studying at Juilliard, Braxton toured with Grammy Award-nominated trumpeter Christian Scott and became a longtime member of Christian's band, where he honed his skills on the road. He has also toured and performed with the Christian McBride Big Band, Jon Batiste and Marquis Hill, among others. In 2017, Fader Magazine called Braxton a "Jazz Marvel" and "Jazz Prodigy." Shortly after, Braxton was listed as one of the Top Five Jazz Artists to Watch (along with Robert Glasper, Kamasi Washington, Butcher Brown and Kris Bowers) in the June 2018 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).
