San Diego, CA -- Saxophonist and composer Tom Braxton will be featured on KDAF-TV (The 33 CW), DFW Close Up Show, in Dallas, TX this Sunday, November 1st at 7:00 A.M. His latest CD, Endless Highway, has been getting recognition and airplay throughout the country with special attention to the single hit “That Wayman Smile." The song pays homage to his friend and mentor, professional basketball player and bass guitarist, Wayman Tisdale who recently lost his battle with cancer. “That Wayman Smile" was prominently featured in a performance during the induction of Tisdale into the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame.





Braxton will perform that track and others on the DFW Morning Show and discuss the upcoming Home Grown Concert/CD Release Party to be held at Lakewood Theater on Thursday, November 5, at 7:30 p.m. The concert will benefit the Dallas Furniture Bank and will also feature Richmond Punch and The GRITZ.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
