In addition to sterling performances, the September 1, 2010 Leonard Cohen Florence concert also proved a source of excellent photos, including these from Paolo Brillo. Especially striking are the shots below of the Webb Sisters and Sharon Robinson.
These and other photos of the concert taken by Paolo Brillo are available at his Highway 61 Photostream. By going to the Leonard Cohen Set within that photostream, one can view exclusively those shots taken by that photographer at various Leonard Cohen shows.

Maarten Massa’s photos of Leonard Cohen and, especially, the band members and backup singers, at the August 10, 2010 Helsinki concert are among the best I’ve seen since the commencement of the tour. While he has graciously allowed these to be posted at Cohencentric, many other shots he took at the Helsinki show can be found at Leonard Cohen Helsinki – Aug 10 2010: Part 1 and Part 2.

In very early times, I tried that [releasing albums without many accompanying musicians]. But in the meantime, my music became much more complex. Furthermore, I would bore myself to death to be in the studio or on stage alone. Sharon Robinson, who has worked with me since 1979 as a backup singer and who produced the new album, has succeeded in cushioning the imperfections of my voice. When we sing together, my voice contains no loneliness.

“The Letters,” written and performed by Leonard Cohen and Sharon Robinson, is a song I’ve considered benignly unremarkable.1 Viewing this video comprising a series of simple animations, however, has raised my interest in and appreciation of this track from the Dear Heather album. The effectiveness of the visual images appears to be less the result of offering interpretive clues than providing focus.
