In Our Own Words: Leonard Cohen

7pm, Friday Dec 22, Paris Cat Jazz Club

“I’m just knocked out when anybody does a cover of mine … I think there are songs that are better done than I have done them.” ~ Leonard Cohen, February 18 1997

In Our Own Words is a collaborative project by vocalist/guitarist Erica Bramham, award winning pianist Nathan Liow, and National Jazz Awards bass semi-finalist Adam Spiegl. The trio are joined by one of Melbourne’s most in-demand drummers, Justin Olsson, for a series of shows exploring the music of some of the greatest singer-songwriters of the 20th century. With new arrangements drawing from jazz, pop and folk traditions the songs of these iconic artists are given a fresh voice that is at once familiar and surprising.

The music of Leonard Cohen is vast and universal. Not bound by genre, time or place his songs lend themselves to endless reinterpretation and re-imagination. With a poet’s hand he paints words that dig deep, question, soften and smother, and his music is as sophisticated as it is simple. His songs have been recorded by some of the world’s greatest musicians including Nina Simone, Roberta Flack, Jeff Buckley, Nick Cave, Johnny Cash, Rufus Wainwright, Madeleine Peyroux and Tori Amos.

The quartet bring their own stories and influences to their arrangements of Cohen’s music, making this a show not to be missed for both long time fans and newcomers to Cohen's repertoire.

Featuring special guest Louise Goh on piano.
