The Braxton BrothersFinding Out What’s Up With
The Braxton Brothers
by S.H. Watkins, Sr.

If you take all the jazz CD’s released since the Braxtons last CD Both Sides and rate the top ten

Rollin’
Braxton Brothers
(Peak – 2004)

tracks on each from one to ten, in my opinion very few will score as high overall as Both Sides. That’s a hard legacy to follow. Rollin’ comes close, if not going it one better, although it’s hard to compare them fairly because they’re different. Waye’s sax is more mature and sure when he riffs on Blue Sands or does the duet dance with Nelson’s guitar on the fantastic Find Your Way.
