Aretha Franklin passed away earlier today, and the many radio and TV tributes I heard have rightly focused on her singing and personality, which meant so much to millions of people.
But I couldn’t help but remember her wonderful piano playing, which combined gospel, R&B, and pop techniques into a, well.. “natural” style all her own.
Here’s a good example of her pianistic side. She was a complete musician.
