What a lost free jazz gem this is! Saxophonist Alan Braufman put this out in 1975 and kinda abandoned doing his own thing to be a hired saxman. He didn't release anything else until 2020 but the fire still burned and the flint that lit the flame began here. It's got the vibes, it's got Afro-rhythms, it goes spiritual, it goes wild but also it's one of the most accessible and listenable free jazz reissues we've heard in a while.

In 1975, the New York City alto saxophonist Alan Braufman released his debut album, Valley of Search, on the India Navigation label. Braufman went on to record and tour with everyone from Carla Bley to The Psychedelic Furs, and didn't release another album under his name until 2020's The Fire Still Burns, which received rave reviews from The WIRE, Downbeat, Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, and NPR.

2024's Infinite Love Infinite Tears is a surprisingly catchy program of free jazz, richly detailed and forthright, embodying a range of emotions and circumstances that convey individuality, collectivity and hope. There is much history and love in this band, and in Alan Braufman’s art overall. Fifty-odd years after debuting on record, his sound-world is as vital and inviting as ever.
