Don Braden
Brighter Days

Ever since his arrival in New York back in 1984, Don Braden has been one of the most impressive tenor-saxophonists of his generation. He has uplifted the bands of the Harper Brothers, Betty Carter, Wynton Marsalis, Freddie Hubbard, Tony Williams, Tom Harrell and Roy Haynes along the way yet it is his work as a leader that is most significant. From start to finish, Brighter Days is one of Don Braden's finest recordings and shows why he is rated as one of the top saxophonists of the early 21st century. Together with his quartet, his chosen medium now, Braden offers a program of jazz classics such as "Prelude to a Kiss" and "Invitation" as well as a sprinkling of original tunes, including the innovative tenor/drum duet, "Underground Groove".
