Sam Braysher is an alto saxophonist based in east London. His debut album, a duo recording with New York pianist Michael Kanan, was described as “delightful and surprising” by Dave Gelly writing in The Observer.
His forthcoming trio album features Catalan drummer Jorge Rossy (Brad Mehldau, Lee Konitz etc.) and British double bassist Tom Farmer (Anoushka Shankar, Empirical).
“Braysher’s cool, modernist twist on old songs is just superb” Simon Adams, Jazz Journal

“Trying to second-guess a long-gone composer’s intention is a risky exercise, and jazz improvisers usually exercise a free hand in interpreting the Great American Songbook. But the warm-toned young London saxophonist Sam Braysher is a prize-winning investigator of the early recordings and published music of Jerome Kern, Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington and many others, and imagines a new jazz closely attuned to an old world.” John Fordham, the Guardian
