Cohen was known for his poetry, his controversial lyrics and to me, he was known as an artist that collaborated with an array of musicians like none other of his generation.

In the seventies, Cohen blended his unique style with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean tones. One of his good friends was Armenian oudist John Bilezikjian, who we lost in 2015.

This past October, Cohen released what would his last album You Want It Darker.

Cohen and Bilezikjian collaborated on several songs, performed many concerts together –  here are some of those clips:

Everybody Knows (1988) – Live Concert
