Leonard Cohen / Field Commander Cohen : Tour of 1979

Waxed at the Hammersmith Odeon and Dome Theater, Brighton, Field Commander Cohen: Tour of 1979 captures the iconic singer-songwriter backed by Austin jazz ensemble Passenger with bassist Roscoe Beck. Cohen cites Beck’s fretless prowess during his between-song stage patter. With Roscoe serving as a counter-melodic voice and rhythmic catalyst, it easy to hear why Leonard has referred to this concert trek as his best ever. Roscoe eventually became Leonard’s musical director and continues to perform with the Canadian bard.
