About the Album

“Bittersweet” is a song about the loneliness of accepting defeat, gracefully. And though sadness never goes away, there’s redemption in the act of living ones life to the fullest. Bittersweet is the first of 4 “online collaborations“ from the Spice Cabinet: born during COVID-19, Bittersweet was recorded entirely separately by each member of the band in home studios in New York, Toronto, Taipei, North Carolina, Los Angeles, Boston and Beijing. “Bittersweet” features Al Strong on Flugelhorn, Lawrence Ku on acoustic guitar and The Orchid Quartet.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
