ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Featuring Adams’ original lyrics and arrangements by pianist Tim Ray, We Should Have Danced is a deeply personal, poignant collection of music featuring the compositions of the late Steve Prosser, Adams’ former husband, for chamber jazz quartet.
After Prosser’s passing in 2012, Adams came across a folder titled “Songs for CD” amongst the items left behind for her. Inside was a trove of Steve’s original music with many of the tunes having been written during their 19 year marriage. Inspired in some cases by Prosser’s poetry and in other cases, by the melodies themselves, Adams wrote lyrics to some of her favorites which then were arranged by Tim Ray. “My mind was filled with images and emotions, searching to put into words what I felt from the music that he wrote,” says Adams. Bassist Paul Del Nero and flautist Fernando Brandão were then added to enrich the project.
Standout tracks include the autobiographical album opener “Prophecy”, which tells of the couples’ first meeting, the poignant “Summer Moon Above", which features lyrics pulled from Prosser’s original poem “Less Than Nothing” and the hauntingly beautiful album closer “Without You”, which Prosser originally titled “For Kris”.
