Up until recently, I hadn’t really gotten excited about Adele. But my daughter, who purchases hundreds of downloads, asked me to listen to Turning Tables. There’s something humbling about the link from the past to the future coming through a child that way. As a keyboard player, a singer, and a songwriter, I was pulled in to and enveloped by the dark and rich mood immediately. The chord changes that the piano defines with the arpeggios, the room for her vocal winds and turns and the conviction of the writing and performance reminds me of the fuel from feeling within a relationship that originally inspired me to start this whole process. I love being reminded of my origins and the wide open future it suggests. I am impressed that the team surrounding Adele helped capture and bring this song to fruition. Bravo! Off to write!
