"I was looking forward to performing with Tom Braxton on the Smooth Jazz Cruise because I had heard so many great things about him. But he exceeded even my high expectations and challenged me with his soulful heartfelt playing. He is my kind of musician! Whether interpreting my music, or performing his own originals with his band on the ship, he nailed everything and projected what seemed like unlimited energy! I can't wait to play with him again. I'm a fan!!"

"...one of the most respected and loved sax men in Smooth Jazz, and it's absolutely his best album to date! Tom Braxton is a treasure, both as a musician and as a human being...ENDLESS HIGHWAY is filled with that 'sweet sound' and positive energy we've come to expect from this incredibly talented composer, producer, and musician. It's an absolute delight, from first note to last...a must-have album for your Smooth Jazz collection."

"Endless Highway...is packed with superior sax work that epitomizes the very essence and spirit of smooth jazz. Braxton has an affinity for the whole spectrum of jazz...some of the silky runs, scale work, and feel often found in the world of straight-ahead jazz artists while keeping that smooth bounce prominently displayed. Tom Braxton...clearly is a student of the 'fine china' of good jazz, and it's on full display here."
~ The Smooth Jazz Ride ~
"With an outstanding array of instrumentalists and vocalists in support, Braxton uses the ten superb tracks of 'Endless Highway' to take the listener on a groove-oriented excursion that, consistent with the best of the genre’s current offerings, shimmers with a delightful urban sophistication...The CD is another significant step on Tom Braxton's 'endless highway' and comes highly recommended."

"Smooth jazz with bite from the vet sax man, this set kicks off in high gear, not worrying about fitting the format and is about as far from wall paper as you can get...this is an enjoyable winner that was made as a great soundtrack for cruising with the top down, even if only in your own headphones. An enjoyable ride no matter how you take it, this is certainly a must to check out."
~ Midwest Record ~
"The album draws attention to Braxton’s mellifluous tonality and easy flowing narrations as he displays multiple tiers to his talent as a composer, producer and arranger...When Braxton puts himself into his music he does so with everything he has. His jovial mood in the tracks pumps positive vibes into the listener’s ears and puts one in a very bright state of being...Endless Highway radiates happiness in every track."
