Video: 2010 Leonard Cohen Florence Show – Famous Blue Raincoat Featuring Dino Soldo


And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear
Sincerely, L Cohen

Dino Soldo Soulful In Chicago

I’m posting this video featuring Dino Soldo, Leonard Cohen’s designated Master Of Breath, because … well, because a number of readers are – oh, let’s call them “enthusiastic” Dino Soldo fans, so this is a case of what’s good for Dino is good for DrHGuy.

The video was shot in Chicago. The left side of Dino’s window in the screenshot above looks out on Marina City. Other scenes from the video also depict familiar Chicago buildings.

Javier Mas On The Art Of The Laud

In this video interview with Dino Solo, Javier Mas, the man Leonard Cohen calls “The Shepherd Of The Strings,” provides an animated, interesting, and helpful exposition on the background and musicological nature of his instruments as well as displaying some wicked calluses that are a consequence of his profession.
