Saxophonist Braxton Cook is breaking out on his own. He’s always been talented, one could tell with his work with Christian Scott atunde Adjuah’s group. His EP with Butcher Brown was dope. Now Cook’s musical journey moves forward, and his bag of tricks expands, with a new single, “Somewhere in Between”. Now Cook sings as well as he plays to bring about a very cool R&B song that feels just in the pocket of the time. Give it a listen after the jump.
