Today's Artist: Tom Braxton Quartet 

Tom Braxton’s  music can be heard on radio and TV airwaves nationwide,  his albums have hit numerous jazz charts including Billboard, RadioWave, SmoothJazz.com, Groove Jazz Music, Capital Jazz Radio, and Amazon. 

Tom toured extensively with bass player Wayman Tisdale for 17 years, also serving as his Musical Director.  Tom and Wayman were featured guest artists on the 2008 CVC 30th anniversary concert at the Meyerson Symphony Center, so he is a good friend of the college.   He has been a featured performer and fan favorite on the Smooth Jazz Cruise since 2005 and has performing as a headliner on the first Smooth Jazz Europe Festival in the Netherlands and the Nile Gold Jazz Safari in Uganda.  He was also a featured performer on the Java Jazz Festival in Jakarta, Indonesia.  Tom has toured with Earl Klugh in South Africa, Malawi, Mozambique, and Japan, and he has also toured with Keiko Matsui in Russia, Eastern Europe, Malaysia, and Japan.  He has shared the stage with many great artists including Dave Koz, Rick Braun, Peter White, Brian Culbertson, Marcus Miller, Candy Dulfer, Warren Hill, Bob James, George Duke, Kirk Whalum, Jonathan Butler, Sheila E., Aretha Franklin, Luther Vandross, and others.


Tom has recorded eight albums including his latest release The Next Chapter (2014),

The Next Chapter, features Grammy winners Bob James, Earl Klugh, and Ricky Lawson, as well as one of Smooth Jazz's most beloved guitarists, Peter White

We are also happy to see one of our most illustrious CVC music graduates performing on keyboards in the group today – Mr. Caleb Sean McCampbell.

Caleb performed in the CVC lab band for two years, completed his AAS in Performing, and since leaving CVC has made his mark in the entertainment industry, performing and producing for Beyonce, Kanye West, Jay-Z, Rhymefest and others.
