2016 Fall Season

The 2016 Texas Jazz Festival in Corpus Christi, Texas

The 56th Texas Jazz Festival was staged once again at Corpus Christi's Heritage Park, just a stone's throw from the Bay, featuring over 60 performers, musicians and groups. Headlining the three day show was recording artist Tom Braxton, the award-winning saxaphonist who has toured with the likes of Dave Coz.


Braxton also toured extensively with Wayman Tisdale for 17 years, also serving as Musical Director. He has been a featured performer and fan favorite on the Smooth Jazz Cruise since 2005. He has also garnered rave reviews overseas, performing as a headliner on the first Smooth Jazz Europe Festival in the Netherlands and the Nile Gold Jazz Safari in Uganda.
