Gerard G Kettel Covers Leonard Cohen With A Je Ne Sais Quoi Of Ry Cooder

Maria Viana writes about  Gerard George Kettel and his album of Leonard Cohen covers, Still Working for Your Smile,

I must say that his live versions are more rhythmic than the CD, where he keeps his voice lower and calm. The Bird on a Wire version on the CD is quite different from the live performance. There’s a je ne sais quoi of Ry Cooder and Paris Texas.

Leonard Cohen songs covered with a Ry Cooder vibe? I’m in.

All of the tracks on the album are available as audio-only videos on YouTube at Gerard George Kettel. I’ve embedded a couple of these recordings below for convenience.
