i used to have massive oldies archives of different performances/recordings of same songs.. a bit obsessive but i love listening to that differences in each of them.
Einav Jackson Cohen entered my life suddenly one day’s night. i stumbled into her show in telaviv; the kind of show they drag out their grand piano for..
It didnt take long to fall in love and now we high-five every wednesday in the park.
Einav sings in hebrew, and does finger ballet with music.
this is Einav with another great israeli pianest poet man called Shlomi Shaban, doing their version of the song he translated and used to play [and of which i got a bootleg from a lovely lady], originally by Bob Dylan: Mama, you’ve been on my mind.
look at her beautiful fro sway.
here’s also Jeff Buckly’s verion, just for same measure.
