In four decades of journalism 'adorable' is a word I have never used. Why use it now? Mayer nurtures new talent in a way that is remarkable for someone of his seniority. As this gig showed, he is so encouraging and ego-free as to be adorable. Mayer is remarkable, musically relevant and adorably rejuvenating.
