‘Delicate Tracks’ began with one of Adam's simple and sublime piano passages that I imported into the studio adding bass, beats and a bank of vocals which arose from a mysterious place. I rarely sing R&B but soul came naturally. Our stream of consciousness lyrics started out as improvised sounds that evolved into words.
After Adam passed, I was alone one morning overcome by hard feelings when there was a knock on my door. Musician Jennifer Castle, held a rose bush. We hardly knew one another and she did not want to intrude but was compelled to bring it to me. I was grateful for her intervention. Symbolically this prickly rose is Adam at a prickly time. The flowers are fragrant, the thorns protective and potentially painful. Everything that comes together must separate. It has been two years since Adam exited. In my night garden his rose returns with a mighty bloom.
