Don Braden continues
his exploration of the intersection of Jazz and Pop with a new program of
his arrangements of works by Stevie Wonder and Earth Wind and Fire. Don
Braden never fails to have audiences dancing in their seats when he plays
his saxophone or flute!
Don Braden is a Jazz
musician of the highest caliber. For over 30 years he has toured
the world leading his own ensembles on saxophone and flute, as a special
guest, and as a sideman with Jazz greats Betty Carter, Wynton Marsalis,
Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, Roy Haynes, and many others. He has
composed music for ensembles ranging from duo to full symphonic
orchestra, in many styles, for recordings (including 19 CDs as a leader
and over 80 as a sideman), film, and the television networks Nickelodeon
and CBS. Braden is a leading arranger of contemporary standards,
and has built a solid collection of newer American songs into his Jazz
repertoire. He is also a world renowned educator, having spent
over two decades giving master classes at countless schools and
universities, and running first class educational programs such as the
Litchfield Jazz Camp, NJPAC’s Wells Fargo Jazz For Teens, and most
recently, the Harvard University Monday Jazz Band. He is an
imaginative, technically excellent, soulful saxophonist, and his harmonic
and rhythmic sophistication give him a unique approach to improvising as
well as composing and arranging. Most important of all, he has a
beautiful sound, and he swings! All this combines with his joyous
yet disciplined personality to make him one of the most important
musicians working today.
