Sumitra, “Recall”

Vocalist/pianist Sumitra is set to release her fourth album as a leader. Bittersweet features bassist Carlitos del Puerto and drummer Brian Blade, and it was produced by her husband, guitarist Alex Machacek. We’re delighted to present you with the premiere of the video for “Recall,” one of Sumitra’s seven originals from the album. “Bittersweet brings together all that the month of December represents for me: Memories of my mother’s December death, of our mutual December birthday and my December wedding anniversary,” she explains. “I have come to learn and understand that grief and joy can coexist side by side, in harmony – and I have been able to move forward, to find peace in what Brené Brown so appropriately calls “holding the tension”. To me, it seems that this quality is what life — and making music — is all about.” Bittersweet will be released on September 13.
