Before letting the message explain itself I would like to thanks Paolo Brillo for the great pictures.

…I’m the guy with the blue windbreaker (not exactly that famous blue raincoat…) on the left of the photo you posted on facebook.
Of course, feel free to use the photos, if you like. Both a pleasure and honor for me.
Once again I’d like to thank you and your band mates for the great show.
Your musical and lyrical approach to the music of Leonard Cohen is really special and somehow original.
The female voices keep any kind of comparison from his voice away and help appreciating as much your way of offering his songs.
It would be very difficult, if a man were the singer, but this avoid the risk.
Voices are perfect and the violin of Rebecca is the best soundtrack for the song with the guitar of Alan.
I knew him from since the days he was in John Martyn band, and then in many other bands, ad it’s always a surprise listen to his music, this time more then ever, as never heard him for an entire concert playing guitar.
Franz Bazzani adds his keyboards to complete the landscape of Cohen music.
As I told you after the show, when I had the news of this show, in January, I wrote Giamprimo that it would’ve surely been one of the concerts of the year.
Now I’m happy to make such a prophecy.
We all enjoyed the concert, and everyone I talk with had this same feeling, realizing that on that stage the artists were really having the same good time we had in the audience,
Give my best compliments to Siv and Rebecca and to the boys, too, of course.
You really got it, and in these days of pain and fear we’re all living in, your music helped us through the night.
Keep note of the love that you were so able to take out of Italy and come back soon in the next future.

I’ll be there, you may be sure.
All the best.

Hey, Little Lee
what are you doing to me?
You tell me that you love me
but things ain’t like they used to be!
Hey, Little Lee

and get things like they used to be!

Exercice de style

ACIDO

Ho appreso di normalità e bellezza,
non la mia, altra, avvicinando il prezioso
che ora toccando scorgi.
Provato e detto ciò che
non si può predisporre,
abbagliante come terra di fuoco,
al tuo slancio sciolgo.

Anche se l’impazienza prima è la tua,
come i vecchi divani di casa (co)sì
cedono al peso del continuo,
la stanchezza mia sfrangia e duole forte,
affondano i tormenti, gravo.
La polvere finissima, quella che
non si toglie, che contro luce
sta sempre a ricoprire, mai affine,
aleggia e stratifica
(tuttavia si leva ad ogni movenza).

Ignoro se la mia insistenza
appagherebbe il tuo destino,
se la tua colma il mio che ne trabocca.
Ignoro se il poeta biasimi
la fine di tale languida inerzia
o se sornione gradirà l’ossequio.

Ora, strizzo l’acido dell’amore.
Del dolce, sempre troppo poco,
ne siamo imbevuti entrambi.
