2012 Leonard Cohen Lisbon Concert Photos – Neil Larsen’s Accordion Hands Close-up, Alex Bublitchi’s Tie Inspection, & More

There are hundreds, if not thousands, of shots showing Leonard Cohen in concert standing erect, kneeling, crouching, etc. And, it’s easy to find images of classic scenes – e.g., Javier Mas performing his dramatic solo at the beginning of “Who By Fire” or Sharon Robinson powerfully singing “Alexandra Leaving.” But only on Cohencentric can one count on finding these and other popular photos alongside such rarely published but endearing images as a closeup of Neil Larsen’s hands playing the accordion on “The Partisan,” Alex Bublitchi, the intense violinist, who appears to be either carefully examining his necktie or performing the magic pencil illusion with his bow, and some wonderful looks at Roscoe Beck and Mitch Watkins in action. All of these photos, both the conventional and wonderfully idiosyncratic poses, were taken by Martine Nevens.

Gwen Langford’s Photo Gallery: 2013 Leonard Cohen Radio City Music Hall Concerts

Gwen Langford, web master of Gwen’s Leonard Cohen Journey, graciously allowed me to filch photos from her own 2013 Radio City Music Hall Leonard Cohen concert albums. Worthy of special note are lovely photos of Charley & Hattie Webb, the shot of Mitch Watkins that not only shows him at work but also displays his 2013 upgrade to a red velvet chair, three impressive images of Alex Bublitchi, and the sequence of photos depicting Leonard Cohen’s elbow keyboard run.

Hear Just Breathe – First Release From New Jennifer Warnes’ Album: Another Time, Another Place

Warnes recorded the album in Austin, Texas and Los Angeles with Roscoe Beck, her longtime friend from Leonard Cohen’s band, for which Beck was bassist and musical director. He also co-produced her albums Famous Blue Raincoat and The Hunter. “Singing is what I do,” Warnes says. “My manager said, ‘It would be good for you to make a record,’ so she got this deal for me and I went to Texas and started working with Roscoe.”
