Los Angeles, CA - March 9, 2006 - Rendezvous Music recording artist Tom Braxton is set to release “Let's Stay Together" from his fifth CD, Bounce, on March 13, 2006.

Invitingly sexy, this Al Green classic combines old-school vibes with Braxton's smoothly seamless sax work. Smooth jazz bassist and former NBA great Wayman Tisdale, proclaims, “I love that sweet sound he gets on the horn."

Produced by Wayman Tisdale, Bounce was released by the Dave Koz label, Rendezvous Music, in 2005. Packed full of heart-warming songs and uplifting melodies, Bounce has endeared the hearts of fans and critics alike. The Jazz Review would proclaim Bounce as “a jewel of an album."

A native of the dusty plains of West Texas, Braxton contributes his success to his father, who has a love of life and jazz. “I have to credit my dad with connecting me to jazz at an early age. I have clear memories of music flowing through the air from my parents' bedroom...He put the alto sax in my hands in the 6th grade, after I had been playing piano for two years. At the age of 84, he still plays his tenor sax and violin everyday, and he's still gigging!"

Braxton has shared the stage with such artists as Luther Vandross, Philip Bailey, Kirk Whalum, Jonathan Butler and Paul Brown. He has appeared on The CBS Morning Show, B.E.T's Jazz Central, TBS, TNT, ESPN, CNN and more. Additionally, Braxton has toured extensively with Tisdale for over a decade.

Over the past several years, Braxton has produced four successful records on his own. In 2004, Braxton and long-time friend Wayman Tisdale teamed up for a project. After some very creative and fun moments in the studio, Bounce was given life and a new CD release was born. Tisdale's company, Tisway Productions, would later join forces with Rendezvous Entertainment and signed Braxton on-board.

Braxton is currently setting up plans for a summer tour and a new CD. Updates and tour schedules can be found at www.tombraxton.com.

“Braxton's soulful, uplifting cover of Al Green's “Let's Stay Together" gives us a great 'blast from the past.'"

All About Jazz needs your support

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.
