New York City jazz veteran Alan Braufman has shared an ethereal remix of his song “Sunrise” by Angel Bat Dawid.
The Chicago composer and multi-instrumentalist put a twinkling, spacey take on “Sunrise,” which Braufman released last June as the lead single of his album The Fire Still Burns.
“I feel honored and grateful to be able to do a remix on his beautiful glorious anthem ‘Sunrise,’” Dawid wrote in a statement. “I had a lot of fun exploring new sounds and I loved listening to the OG recording stems. It was like having a personal intimate solo concert with some of my favorite musicians like [saxophonist] James Brandon Lewis all up in my earhole! I had a blast and am ever so grateful!”
Besides the remix, Braufman has also announced that his 1975 album Valley of Search, which was first reissued in 2018, will be released on CD for the first time. It will come with the saxophonist’s 1972 session with pianist Cooper-Moore for Columbia University’s radio station WKCR, which was initially released in 2019 after master tapes were unearthed. This 2021 re-release, however, was remastered from a new source tape and available as a single 18-minute recording. The WKCR session will also be pressed on vinyl for the first time.
