Saxophonist Don Braden Interviewed at AAJ

SOURCE: Published: 2007-01-22
Don Braden went to Harvard in 1981 to become a computer programmer and emerged as a new voice on the saxophone. For two decades he's been making a name for himself in the modern jazz world, and he's compiled an impressive resume, working with established masters like [trumpeter] Freddie Hubbard, [vocalist] Betty Carter, [drummers] Roy Haynes and Tony Williams; then-emerging-talents like [trumpeter] Wynton Marsalis and the Harper Brothers; and as a leader and composer in his own right.

AAJ contributor Jason Crane caught up with Braden recently, to discuss how he got where he is today including his time with Wynton Marsalis, his recent octet and...Bill Cosby.
